Benchmark Old Number 8——2 bottle bundle

Benchmark Old Number 8 is from Buffalo Trace Distillery, who make a lot of different bourbons from just a few mash bills.  Age and placement in the warehouses determine the rest. Their #1 mash bill is a low-rye bill (less than 10%) and makes some big names: Eagle Rare, George T. Stagg and Stagg Jr., Colonel E.H. Taylor, the eponymous Buffalo Trace, Old Charter, and McAfee’s Benchmark Old Number 8.

Tasting Notes

Nose:  Candy corn, butterscotch, toasted grains, vanilla, corn and light bits of tart caramel apples, nuts and a creamy acidic nature like sour cream.

Palate:  Candy corn, caramel corn, vanilla, nuts, grain and a touch of oak and spice.  The palate is more muted than the aroma, but there’s nothing offensive going on so there’s nothing to get too worked up about.

Finish: Short drop of nuts, oak, vanilla and spice.

Overall: The aroma of the McAfee’s Benchmark Old No. 8 Bourbon is a bit more dynamic than the flavor and presents a more interesting experience.   It’s perfectly drinkable and inoffensive.
