Buffalo Trace Distillery Sweeps Double Gold Awards
If you’re a fan of Buffalo Trace bourbon, you’re probably already well aware of the accolades that the distillery has received over the years. But here’s another one for the books, and it’s a big one: Buffalo Trace has just swept the 2021 Double Gold awards.
The Double Gold Awards
The Double Gold awards are the highest honor bestowed upon bourbons in the industry. The term “Double Gold” signifies that the spirit received a gold medal rating in all categories by a panel of expert judges. In other words, it’s the cream of the crop when it comes to bourbon.
This year, Buffalo Trace managed to bring home seven Double Gold awards in total. Let’s take a closer look at the bourbons that won big.
The Seven Winners
The first bourbon on the list is Weller Full Proof. This bourbon has been a favorite among enthusiasts for a while now, and for good reason. It boasts a smooth, complex flavor profile that really shines when sipped neat. The Double Gold award is just further proof of its greatness.
Next up is Eagle Rare 10 Year Old. This bourbon has been a staple of the Buffalo Trace lineup for quite some time, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s a well-balanced bourbon with notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak that make it a pleasure to drink.
The third bourbon on the list is George T. Stagg. This is a bourbon that needs no introduction, as it’s widely regarded as one of the best bourbons on the market. The high proof and complex flavor profile make it a bourbon that’s best enjoyed in moderation, but when savored properly, it’s truly a thing of beauty.
The fourth bourbon on the list is Colonel E.H. Taylor Barrel Proof. This is a bourbon that truly embodies the Buffalo Trace style. It’s bold, complex, and full of character, making it a favorite among bourbon enthusiasts everywhere.
The fifth bourbon on the list is Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye. This rye whiskey is a real crowd-pleaser, with sweet notes of honey and caramel that are tempered by a spicy kick that lingers on the tongue. It’s a perfect example of what a rye whiskey should be.
The sixth bourbon on the list is William Larue Weller. This is another high-proof bourbon that’s not for the faint of heart. But for those who can handle it, the payoff is immense. It’s a bourbon that’s full of rich, complex flavors that evolve with every sip.
The seventh and final bourbon on the list is E.H. Taylor Straight Rye. This rye whiskey is a real sleeper hit, as it’s not as well-known as some of the other bourbons on this list. But for those who have tried it, it’s a bourbon that’s hard to forget. It’s a well-balanced rye whiskey with notes of cinnamon, clove, and vanilla that make it a real standout in the crowded rye whiskey market.
The Bottom Line
It’s safe to say that Buffalo Trace Distillery is having a very good year. With seven Double Gold awards under their belt, they’ve cemented their place as one of the best distilleries in the world.
