16 Best Bourbons To Use In Your Old Fashioned
Food - Drink
16. Buffalo Trace
Buffalo Trace Bourbon is made by Buffalo Trace Distillery, which has roots dating back more than 200 years. This bourbon’s "complex aroma of vanilla, mint, and molasses,” along with “notes of brown sugar and spice that give way to oak, toffee, dark fruit and anise," give it a sweet, complex flavor that can’t go wrong.
15. Bulleit
Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey was made for an old fashioned. "Medium amber in color, with gentle spiciness and sweet oak aromas,” with a long, dry satiny finish, Bulleit is packed with a burst of flavors that can stand alone by themselves, but truly come alive in the cocktail.
14. Eagle Rare Kentucky
Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is aged for no less than ten years, and worth every penny of its hefty price tag. Eagle Rare is more than sufficient by itself, and not everyone wants to reduce the flavor with the ingredients of an old fashioned, but trust us, you won't regret this mixture's rare taste.
13. Elijah Craig
Coming back to a more affordable bourbon, Elijah Craig Small Batch will make your next old fashioned sing. As with all good bourbons, Elijah Craig goes down smooth and tastes good enough to have on its own, with its "distinctive warm spice and subtle smoke flavor."
12. Four Roses
With a 100-proof makeup, Four Roses Single Barrel isn't messing around, and it's aged a minimum of seven to nine years for good measure. "Complex, full-bodied and surprisingly smooth with a delicate, long finish that's unbelievably mellow,” Four Roses is perfect for an old fashioned.
