Benchmark / Old No. 8 Bourbon / 750mL
The nose bears caramel notes with a delicate stone-fruit backdrop. A robust and sturdy palate with some fine leather notes mingling with dry tobacco, a touch of oak and a hint of dried cherries. The finish is smooth and calming.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - This impressive value has a classic bourbon note of roasted peanuts, clover honey, and butterscotch candy. In the mouth the whiskey is incredibly drinkable showing soft vanilla and caramel flavors and a smooth velveteen finish with little to no spice. - 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Tried and True Award).April/2018
Named after the McAfee brothers who surveyed a site just north of Frankfort in the late 1700s, this rye recipe bourbon is yet another label that honors the storied history of the Distillery and the land it sits on.
