Buffalo Trace - 3 different White Dogs

Buffalo Trace White Dog Mash #1....$14.99 / 375ml
"In Kentucky, buffalo carved a pathway followed by America's first explores. Those brave pioneers distilled whiskey using traditional methods and drank it right off the still. They called it White Dog. This raw distillate was clear, un-aged and had a hint of sweet corn. Later distillers discovered this spirit was perfect for aging--creating what we know today as fine Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. We're still making whiskey on the spot where ancient buffalon once crossed the Kentucky River and following centuries of time-honored distilling tradition. Enjoy this White dog the way Americans did more than 200 years ago." -- Buffalo Trace
