Proof66 Notes

Buffalo Trace is one of the more famous bourbons out of Kentucky. It uses a distinct mash bill of Indian corn, rye, and barley. They take especial care in their barrel selection using "center ring" wood from trees between 70 and 80 years old. They claim to have the highest rejection rate for barrels in the industry. The whiskey chill-filtered and bottled for a taste that "pleasantly sweet" with a "long dry finish."

Buffalo Trace Bourbon Cream liqueur is their Kentucky take on the popular Irish cream liqueur (but featuring bourbon instead of Irish whiskey). They claim that the cream complements the vanilla flavors of their signature bourbon.

One doesn't often think of buffalo in Kentucky but the distillery takes its name from the buffalo path (or "trace") that led to the banks of the Kentucky River in Franklin County. Buffalo Trace Distillery takes pride in the limestone water (being notably free of iron) and good soil conditions for grain. The site has had a working distillery since 1787 but the official Buffalo Trace first began operation in 1857. It obtained one of only four permits offered during Prohibition to maintain production for "medicinal purposes." Today, the distillery sits on a picturesque 119 acres and produces several labels of bourbon. Buffalo Trace was named Distillery of the Year by the 2008 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. It was named a national historic landmark in 2013.

Great cream liqueur, period. Certainly different from Irish Creams, but i find this way better than Baileys. You can taste slight hint of buffalo trace in it.

I don't usually drink creams and only bought this cause it was made by Buffalo Trace. This is delicious. If you like Buffalo Trace you can really taste the bourbon they have in there. I wish it was a bit more powerful than it is but it is a cream and there's only so much you get from those. Still, I'd recommend this over pretty much anything else just cause of the name. But it really is delicious on its own.

Better than Baileys, but no where near my favourite cream. I'd recommend Forty Creek Cream.

The finest cream liqueur out there, made with real cream, so it can go bad...though I've never seen a bottle of this stuff last long enough for that to be a concern. I wish it was available up here in Ontario. simply delicious.

Try this and you'll never want to go back to the traditional Irish creams. Not only dose it give you what you'd expect in a cream liquor, it delivers a slight hint of that Kentucky bourbon that we all love.

Kick ass good. drink straight in milk shakes or with good root beer. I wish like hell that I could buy this outside of Kentucky. Way better than Baileys.

This is hands down one if the most outstanding cream liqueurs Ive ever had. 3 of us demolished a bottle in 12 minutes and wanted more. I went back to the liquor store and some guy bought all 4 cases they had before I got there (dick). If you can find some, BUY IT!
