Select Barrels are chosen for this small match Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey by our Master Distiller. The aroma of vanilla and oak gives way to delightful hints of caramel, leather, and honey.
In 1773, three McAfee Brothers named James, George, and Robert left Virginia westward to explore the uncharted territory that would later be known as Kentucky. Traveling by canoe at first, the McAfee Company eventually followed a native trail overland that led to the great buffalo crossing, where the brothers surveyed the land now home to the world's most award-winning distillery - Buffalo Trace Distillery. The surveyor marks left behind are known as benchmarks and this Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey honors the pioneering spirit of these early American explorers.
