"Bourbon that matures on the top warehouse floors tends to age faster as heat rises. Bottled at 86 proof, this top floor whiskey is smooth and well-rounded to be enjoyed straight, with ice, or in your favorite cocktail."
This brand is named after the McAfee brothers, who explored the area around present-day Frankfort in the later 1700s. Benchmark is also made from Buffalo Trace's traditional bourbon mash bill #1, with a low rye content.
TASTING NOTES Scents of subtle sweetness and baking spice are followed by flavors of light citrus, butterscotch, and oak.
