Viewing down into the bottom of a cut crystal glass containing an extraordinarily smooth Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey McAfee's Benchmark Old No. 8, by Buffalo Trace Brewing, Frankfort, KY.


This product has been an award-winning bourbon whiskey since at least 2000, winning Gold, and Silver medals in national, and international spirituous beverage competitions.


The distillery's namesake – Buffalo Trace, which has been distilling continuously for over 200 years (not even Prohibition stopped them "During Prohibition the distillery was even permitted to remain operational, to make whiskey for "medicinal purposes."") – also makes another exceptionally smooth whiskey by the same name – and it too, is a Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey, just as storied, and award-winning.


Though it ought go without saying, I'll say it anyway – such excellent quality beverages should be consumed "neat," which is at room temperature, without any additives... including ice.
