|Buffalo Trace at Perfect Pour|
Apparently, there have been times when Buffalo Trace isn't available. The giant liquor store apparently avoided disaster because it had agreed months ago to buy an entire barrel. That barrel -- bottled up -- has arrived, and it's for sale both in front and in the bourbon aisles.
I'm new to bourbons, but Buffalo Trace has been a favorite -- especially because it costs less than $30 and less than many of the small distillery liquors on the same shelves.
The Perfect Pour bottles even have a special sticker on the side commemorating the barrel. It's a cool detail, and I'll post next week about the bourbon cocktail that we stumbled on in New York City.
If you're a bourbon fan, this might be a reason to run over.
