Proof66 Notes

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. 

Buffalo Trace white dog is, simply enough, un-aged whiskey (or "new whiskey" or "moonshine" or "white lightning"). It was originally something of a rarity being produced only during the "white dog days" in the fall and often available in only 375ml bottles. There are now 3 version of the spirit. The wheated mash is considered to be batch #3 and is the same grain bill used to make the rye whiskey for Thomas Handy Sazerac Rye

The 2011 Beverage Testing Institute review called it "powerfully delicious" and recommended it for cocktails.
