Buffalo Trace Single Barrel – Tom’s by Flight Club 2019 Edition (90 Proof)
Nose: Dehydrated green apples; cherry; butterscotch; waxy apple skin; Sierra Mist; Lemon Warhead candy; baking spice. Fruity and citrusy, with a nice undertone of traditional bourbon butterscotch and baking spice notes.
Palate: Cherry; Lemon Warhead, light oak/faint cardboard; salt; oily/buttery popcorn; vanilla ice cream. This one brought age to the palate unlike the other picks and even a standard bottling.
Finish: Medium. Leather, fruit leather (cherry roll up); effervescent lemon seltzer; brine. A delicious leathery aged end to a nice Buffalo Trace experience.
