Ancient Ancient Age 10 Year Bourbon. Photo courtesy Great Bourbons.com.Don’t confuse this one with the Ancient Ancient Age 10 Star Bourbon. You’ll generally find this one only in Kentucky, and it’s one of the best values around. It’s distilled at Buffalo Trace, and the nose is very smooth with notes of toasted oak, old leather, tobacco, honey, and a hint of chocolate. The taste is smooth and sweet with a good cinnamon spiciness that doesn’t overpower the notes of honey, caramel, and toasted oak that give it a good balance. The finish is just as smooth and sweet, with caramel and molasses notes balanced by a lingering touch of cinnamon spice. Excellent! (April, 2013)
