The nose is super sweet with hints of plums and bubblegum. I know, right? What are we doing, playing Candyland? Oh no, we are drinking bourbon! If you spend some more time on the nose, hints of tobacco are present too. The palate is very nice with a medium to full mouthfeel. Sweet honey can be found towards the fore of your mouth with hints of fruit at the rear. The finish is long and spicy with hints of oak and vanilla. This is an excellent bourbon. I understand it’s a little bit more pricy in other parts of the country, but we picked this up for $44, making it an incredible value. Although Buffalo Trace products are rarer these days, Rock Hill Farms shouldn’t be too hard to find.
