Still drinking Dewar's white scotch.
Looking at Buffalo Trace and right from the site is this
This deep amber whiskey has a complex aroma of vanilla, mint and molasses. Pleasantly sweet to the taste with notes of brown sugar and spice that give way to oak, toffee, dark fruit and anise. This whiskey finishes long and smooth with serious depth.

Do you guys really pick up on this? Or is it bs. It's funny how 2 things are always compared to something else. Alcohol including wine has all the wonderful yankee candle aromas and taste comparisons. At a recent wine walk I heard women talking about the wine and picking up on the oak. BS bimbo. When's the last time you tasted a section of an oak tree. And then there is meat. If it's not beef, pork or fish it all taste like chicken.
Funny how we never talk of which soil, manure or area a potato was grown in.
Maybe it is real. I don't pick up on it, but it is entertaining.

Have not tried it yet, but I did watch it get bottled and sealed by hand when I toured the distillery.

You need to try it sometime. Itís similar to Trace, with more cinnamon and heat.

I get some of this. A big part is some bourbons I just like, and some I donít care for. A lot of bourbons have a earthy, peaty taste to the finish. I donít care for this. Buffalo Trace I definitely get the vanilla, molasses, and some cinnamon. I have no idea what dark fruit tastes like.

Stateman is OK...it was made for a movie, and the juice is not worth the price in my opinion. It's snake oil stuff like Monster Cable. The Old Forrester 1920 is great for the price. I'm in love with any Buffalo Trace Product. Out of the 18 bourbons they make, they are all fantastic. They are located about 90 minutes to my southwest. We took a trip there a few months back and it was outstanding.

I thought Statesmen was better than OK. But it is priced too high for what it is. Totally agree with Buffalo Trace products

This is what its about to me, the finish! I like it when I am sitting there thinking about it and nothing else, a couple minutes later.

Dislike the peat flavors, main reason I stay away from Scotch.
I also dislike overly charred barrels, charcoal tastes like $hit.

But yes I get some of that, but do indeed laugh at some of the descriptions.

Almost as bad as audio descriptions.
I saw this while on another site and it had me loling for real, this while seemingly humurous, the guy was dead serious.

Wood: can sound warm but grainy

Steel: can sound strong but cold

Glass: can sound clear but with glare

Rubber/Sorbogel: can add lots of bounce to music but spongy sound.

Brass/Bronze: wish a had a semi truck full of it - expensive.

Really....

Do your very best to get this, its freekin delicious!
It comes from our favorite place BT.
I promise you if you can get it you wont be disappointed.
As the last line in the review says, There is no need to sample this before you open your wallet. If you find a bottle buy it!

Someone recently mentioned Elmer T to me, but I didnít realize it was a Trace product. Iíll have to see if I can find it.

Forget the Clyde Mays, go straight to the Elmer T. Lee!
Pretty hard to find, but worth it!
Relatively affordable when you do.

The ABC stores in NC are mighty short on BT products. I don't think they like you guys very much.
I may be schizophrenic, but at least I have each other.

Our ABC stores are government run, and the distribution is all handled by the state. Ive heard from a few different store managers that the rumor is someone at distribution pissed off someone at BT.

I didn't think there was a 10yr. I thought they started at 15yr. one of the most expensive to be found. Way above my pay. DO you have the bottle or does it belong to a friend?
