Benchmark Bourbon

Item # 23655 750mL

The heavy char for the barrels used during maturation is clear on the palate with notes of burnt marshmallow, caramel, and vanilla. Make no judgments; this is fantastic Bourbon at an unbeatable price. Distilled at the legendary Buffalo Trace distillery with their famous Mash Bill #1.

Staff Pick Notes


Buffalo Trace products have been somewhat scarce these days, due to unprecedented interest in American bourbon. One workhorse, however, that has been completely overlooked in the venerable stable of Buffalo Trace products is Benchmark. What this means is that the same source for grains, the same stills, the same master distiller, and the same high-quality Ozark Mountain oak used for aging for the Buffalo Trace products is available through a different avenue. At this price, it is the best value in bourbon. Drink it on the rocks or take shots; it has a healthy dose of rye that offers an intensity that won't get lost in a cocktail. Classic notes of caramel, brown sugar, and barrel spices deliver an unexpected complexity. True to its name, this is definitely a bottle for everyone.
