Buffalo Trace Single Barrel – Tom’s by Flight Club “Where the Buffalo Roam” (90 Proof)
Nose: Caramel corn; butterscotch; a little touch of heat that compliments the sweetness; red fruits. Balanced while being more complex than a standard bottle. Rich in flavors without the often associated pungent ethanol.
Palate: A fairly traditional Buffalo Trace profile, but amped up fruitiness on the front palate, and more rich baking spice/cinnamon on the back of the palate. This is delicious.
Finish: Another long finish, with a nice waxy coating; baking spices and cocoa lingers.
Overall: This is an awesome example of what Buffalo Trace can be in single barrel form, without having to vary dramatically from a standard profile. The nose, palate and finish compliment one another, while providing different flavors along the way.
