One of the newest retail categories to emerge in the whisky world has added a Bourbon experience for the true connoisseurs. Buffalo Trace, renowned for the production of the world’s finest Bourbon and Rye Whiskies, has taken it back to basics with the release of White Dog Mash #1. Now Bourbon enthusiasts can complete their education with this latest release from Buffalo Trace. Buffalo trace White Dog Mash #1 is made from the low Rye mash bill used for George T Stagg, Eagle rare and Buffalo Trace Straight Bourbon.
… this is the mash used to make the aged Buffalo Trace Bourbon. Although it’s a corn-heavy mash, the nose has strong malt notes that remind us of brewing beer. The entry is sweet with light corn notes and graham cracker. The spice from the rye comes in at the mid palate and the beer malt flavor on the nose comes through. It’s got a nice finish that combines all these flavor elements with just the right amount of heat.
