Is the smoke detector working?

Welcome back to The Cask! This is the tenth edition of The Cask and I welcome you back to review a Kentucky Straight Bourbon! If you missed the previous editions of The Cask, check it out here with a link to the past editions (there’s a couple other posts mixed in too, you’ll notice my consistent lead image):

Past Editions of The Cask

Recently you’ve all been calling for Bourbon and Scotch, so I continue with the requests from the readers! You have more power than you think!


So this isn’t my first bourbon I’ve reviewed here, if you remember I did a review of Big House Bourbon where I went very in depth on the topic of “What is Bourbon?” So if you’d like to touch up on the requirements to get a Whiskey classified as Kentucky Straight Bourbon, you can review over there.

So with all the recommendations coming in I found a great deal on a smaller sized bottle of Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Why didn’t I buy the normal size? Well, I can get into a bourbon here or there but it’s not typically my style of whiskey and don’t forget I don’t get paid to do any of these reviews! Feel free to send money - or just send whiskey!

Price: $30 - Mid-Range

For a solid good Bourbon, I don’t think the price is off the mark at all. I don’t know if I’ve ever said “right on the target” before for price,


Quality: Rocks Sipper - 2

  1. Sipper
  2. Rocks Sipper
  3. Ice Sipper
  4. Mixer

I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. This might be my new favorite Bourbon. Hats off to Buffalo Trace for making some solid Bourbon here. It was smooth but still had some kick in the end of it, which is kind of understandable as it’s a 45% ABV instead of the industry standard 40 OR it’s 90 proof, this is an edit, please excuse my common, yet inaccurate phrasing.


You guys are helping me explore more styles of whiskey so keep the recommendations coming! You can even feel free to send me something you aren’t brave enough to try!

As always, have a great weekend and drink some good Whiskey! Let me know if you find something good!
