BENCHMARK ORIGINAL KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON:
Buffalo Trace makes a lot of different bourbons but they only have a few “mash bills” or recipes/bourbons. The whiskey is essentially the same for a number of brands but age and placement in the rickhouses determine the final bottling and price. Their #1 mash bill is a low-rye bill (less than 10%) and makes some big names: Eagle Rare, George T. Stagg and Stagg Jr., Colonel E.H. Taylor, the eponymous Buffalo Trace, Old Charter and McAfee’s Benchmark.
So if you are looking for good Bourbon that is quite likely the base whiskey for some pretty popular and hard to find whiskies (Buffalo Trace, Elmer T Lee) then this is your Bourbon.
