It’s a decent bourbon - my go to for cocktails. I wouldn’t save it - open it up. I pay $25-30 for a 750ml. The price you paid seems high.


MeatMan7780

Yes, MSRP is $25ish. But I've seen mom and pop places charge this for sure. I've seen Weller sr 750s for $65! I'm like 'hard pass!'


nunee1

Standard retail is about $25 for a standard 750 ml. OP got a 375ml for that price.


MeatMan7780

Yeah I realize now my wording wasn't very good. I meant a reply to the comment about 750 for $25-30

MeatMan7780

That's a fair enough price. It can be all over the board


1ESY187

Liquor store near me had weller for like 200 bucks


demonstar55

I've seen Weller SR for $185


CursorTN

Saw a bottle of Weller 107 at a liquor store in Seattle last week. “How much?” $199+20.5%+$3.07/liter Washington State Liquor a tax. “No thanks. How much is that bottle of Blue Spot? Have you marked it up way above MSRP also?” Yep. The whole place was decent bottles with indecent prices.


trainey3009

I paid $60 for Weller SR 750 before I knew better


myLover_

I think there are better bourbons for cocktails old granddad bonded comes to mind, or really anything bonded.


myops_rock

Bonded gives you more punch with the 100 proof. I usually just go with a generous 2 1/2 of lower proof. I haven’t had old grandad bonded but the regular stuff is a little harsh for me.


xSaRgED

It’s not a great price, and you should drink it the way you want. Pop it now, hold to share with a friend, etc. it isn’t anything crazy special but it’s a decent bottle.


novagenesis

I can't find BT for less than $34 in my neck of the woods. Must be nice to live somewhere that has cheap whiskey, lol.


xSaRgED

I meant not a great price in terms of value, paying $25 for a 375 ml bottle is akin to paying $50 for a 750 ml, and BT is NOT a $50 bottle. Hell, at your pricing it would still be a no from me, since there are better whiskeys at that price point and they just inflate price because it’s an easy drink for new whiskey drinkers and manufactured scarcity.


novagenesis

Oh geez. Literacy isn't my strong point when I'm a few drinks in. I thought that was a 750.


Farrt1

Come down to Georgia, I just bought 36 1L bottles of BT for $36 each


The_Kraken_Wakes

Wtf are you going to do with 36 bottles? Why not leave some for other people. Kind of a dick move there Bud, unless you own a bar.


Farrt1

The store I bought it from had atleast 8 cases and more coming in. I am trying to give it to people in areas who can never find a bottle, I'm not keeping a single one for myself. So other people are the only ones getting it


The_Kraken_Wakes

My bad, I just couldn't really understand why anyone would buy 36 bottles of it. Now I know. You are a solid friend, and I am a presumptuous dick. Happy holidays.


novagenesis

Wow... nice. The gas would cost more than the whiskey, but still nice! LOL. Maybe if I need to do a year bulk run, I'll drive down there, though!


Quesabirria

SF Bay Area, $20-25 for 750ml Make yourself an Old Fashioned or a Boulevardier


Hot-Bunch3826

This is the best standard bourbon there is. No reason to save it as it's not in any means a collectible or anything Unique. But a fantastic bourbon regardless and meant to be enjoyed!


lostime05

“Best” and “fantastic” aren’t any words I would use to describe BT. More like: good enough if you can get it at list price and better than anything in a plastic bottle.


Hot-Bunch3826

... good bourbon for beginners! But I guess I can't use those words, I only worked in a bourbon bar for a couple years but I guess some words to describe bourbon are banned. Especially when it comes to BT


lostime05

Good for anyone who enjoys it, but even at list price it tastes like a watered down bourbon. Paying double or more for it is insane in my mind.


uncleking1971

Prepare to be whelmed. It's fine. Enjoy!


[deleted]

It’s decent. And nah, that is not a good price really but o well


titanicx

It's buffalo trace. It's not rare or special. It's a good bourbon. Not worth saving.


nunee1

The price is steep, but in some places it’s harder to find. In other places there’s cases upon cases… You bought the cow…drink the milk! Drink it, I say. See if you like it, see how it compares to other pours you have had. If you like it, figure out what you will pay for it. If you don’t like it, you tried something new that you haven’t seen before. You paid a premium for it, but hey, that’s not terrible.


Letsdobathsalts

Next time buy yourself a bottle of Evan Williams SB


MeatMan7780

Most underrated sb program!


justagenericname1

That's about what I usually pay for a fifth of Buffalo. Sorry, mate. You got ripped off. Still decent bourbon though.


seanrsc1

Ahh yeah it seems so. I just never seen it before so I thought it was rare.


justagenericname1

Well, not too big a deal just once, right? Out of curiosity where about do you live? I feel like Buffalo is just as common as, say, Bulleit. I see it pretty much everywhere that has whiskey.


seanrsc1

True. I live in Fort Worth Texas.


VypeNysh

you could probably find some EH taylor or Weller if you look around a bit


justagenericname1

Huh, interesting. Never been, but I'd think that would be somewhere with no shortage of whiskeys. Anywho, enjoy your pint!


MeatMan7780

I'm in TX as well and BT novelty is huge here!


BrogeyBoi

Why not check here before you buy and post?


maxwaub

We all pay too much for something now and again. Don't worry about it and enjoy the whiskey. I had some Buffalo Trace last night and think you will enjoy it. Let us know what you think about it.


tocanales

If you haven't seen one around, drink it! Don't listen to unhelpful "in my area it's $blah". It's a good bourbon. Try it neat. I like it best in old fashioneds or coffee. Enjoy!!


gh1993

It's good bourbon. I haven't been able to find it in a year where it used to be on shelves for $25 everywhere. Damn you joe rogan podcast.


johnnydoeboy4

Open it. Drink it. Enjoy!


[deleted]

MSRP for the 750 is $19.99


FluffusMaximus

Bad price, average bourbon. Drink it.


jdgreenberg

Am I the only one that read this as sarcasm poking fun at the constant posts in this group with the same titles and themes? Lol. Even if it's not a joke I got a good chuckle. Thank you OP.


seanrsc1

It unfortunately was not. I’m new to whiskey. It’s cool tho. No big deal. It’s only 25 and I’m sure it’s still a good bottle. Gonna drink it anyway lol


jdgreenberg

Not unfortunate at all! What makes you happy is what matters and you will enjoy the bottle! Don't let people in this sub shame you for paying a certain price or whatever. Just buy what you like and don't listen to the haters.


ZookeepergameOk2920

Average price for an average bottle of hooch. Crack it open and enjoy!!!!!!


Marcx1080

It’s double the average price


novagenesis

Where are all these people finding Buffalo Trace for less than rotgut? I can't even get plastic-bottle whiskey for the prices some of you are finding decent sips. EDIT: NM, am idiot. Didn't read the 375ml part.


HeiHei_13

Drink it and enjoy! It’s an enjoyable bourbon despite what some say. Got two single barrel store picks of it this week for less than $25 each, one was a fifth and one a liter.


FreddyDaFish

Open it. Common find that has decent taste too!


Borega

Is the price that high because of the special size? I can get a 1000ml for that price when its on discount over here in europe (happens on the regular)


hoosierdaddy192

Yes the small bottles are usually 70 percent of a fifth or liter despite having 50% of the juice. It’s good to know you can find decent bourbon overseas though. I’m lucky or unlucky enough to live in Kentucky. I get half gallons(1.75L) for $45


mysterymalts

You overpaid, that price should’ve been for a full bottle. No need to save. We use this as the well whiskey at my bar. Good entry whiskey. Enjoy!


DantesDeath

Smah that fucker it's delishious as a mixer.


Mojoe70

I just bought a 750 for $21.99. Always try to buy it at a big chain store they don't normally mark it up.


dreambully

If you are in a good place or e with a circle of friends; drink it. Any day that you know of is a good day for bourbon.


novagenesis

FYI, prices are regional. As many people are claiming you got ripped off, I would kill if one of my local stores had BT for $25. The only iconic value whiskey I can find under $35 is Four Roses. $25 is probably a fine and normal price where you live. Compare it to local prices for Eagle Rare, Evan Williams, High West Prairie (the cheap high west), or Four Roses Select. If it matches their prices or is cheaper, you got a good price. If it's more than them, you didn't get a great price. Is what it is. As for rarity, it's been hard to find on and off of late because some celebs came out saying it's their fave whiskey. Some areas have had price increases to meet demand (mine didn't, it's always been $35 here). Is what it is. Enjoy it because it's a good whiskey. The biggest complaint a lot of people have is that it's not that complex. You can sip it no problem and it won't challenge or surprise you. But it'll be tasty. As another poster said, it's "whelming". EDIT: Ignore me. I missed the part where it's 375ml. Kinda pricy there, but 375ml's usually are a bit overpriced. It's $35 for 750 in my area, and my area is notoriously a bit pricy in general.


crash12190

It's a great bottle to put next to some other $50 bottles and have people guess which is more expensive. Great for cocktails, and a solid supper on it's own. $25-30 MSRP


aPanini117

I could never find BT when I used to live in Florida, but after I moved to Georgia its on all the shelves. When you travel around domestically, take a moment to check out what's on their shelves because you can run into some great stuff


Aggravating-Pen9070

Good price open it and enjoy


zappawizard

Drink it!


chrislov27

When it’s available,I can get a 750 of BT for 20.99 no tax.


elcapitancrujido

There is a shortage in Virginia on Buffalo Trace. The ABC stores are only allowing 2 per customer a visit.


BigE1818

Yeah for that’s a $25 for 750ml bourbon all day everyday. Don’t be fooled by the distribution bias that makes it scarce in a lot of areas. I’ll never understand why distributers do this with all Buffalo Trace probucts. Yes there are a lot of good bourbon from that distillery......but this isn’t one.


myputterisbutter

Just got the 750ml bottle last weekend for $29.99 and it was a store pick. Good stuff for the price.


andthepsychicsaw

I’m a couple pours deep myself and I completely overlooked the “375” and figured you were talking about a 750. I thought, damn, not a bad price considering I just finally found one myself for 30 (after tax). But after realizing my mistake… Open it!! I’ve been sipping on mine all night and it’s good. Better than most I’ve had so far but didn’t blow me away.


Huckismydogg

Sorry, you got ripped off


AgonxReddit

I pay 20 for 750ml. So….


seanrsc1

Well hell. It’s all good. I just had never seen it before around here.


apathy_31

And $32 for a 1.75L


SammyMeekness223116

Kill it. Tonight.


Marcx1080

You got ripped off big time, I get it for half the price in the UK. It’s a basic bourbon over here


lostime05

It’s a basic bourbon here as well, people have convinced themselves otherwise and created a self induced shortage.


Original_Employment8

It’s like as good as any other 30 dollar bottle I think but you may absolutely love it


whiskeymiller34

Drink it.


apathy_31

Mixes particularly well in bourbon sours


cutterandflame

My fry’s has on sale for 18 for a 750, a word of advice always look it up on your phone before you buy. It makes a decent old fashioned or whiskey sour.


MIKEraphone

Crack it open


AfternoonEstimate

in st. louis it is about the only BT product we can find. one of my favorites, drink up!


thuwa791

Yeah that price isn’t great, as other folks here have already commented. But honestly, I personally don’t have a problem with overpaying a bit for a bottle I’ve never had before and that I don’t see very often. I probably wouldn’t do it more than once though.


thisclubhasevrything

The best bourbon is one you enjoy! Open and drink as you please. If you like it you can look around for a larger bottle later. Cheers, man!


MXC-GuyLedouche

It's a solid pour, great intro bourbon so of you have people you want to share with that barely dabble or you think might like bourbon then it's a great shareable. Not so special that you should save it for some crazy occasion (unless that's what it warrants for your current budget)


JaguarDismal

the only way it's worth the $25 is if you split it with a friend and enjoy it. add a good cigar too. nntt


seanrsc1

That sounds perfect


SigaVa

Its nothing special, bottoms up!


VelcroFlamingo

That bottle is 18 at my local store so it’s not great but you weren’t really fucked on the price either. Drink it how you want tho, life’s short brother.


fjh2327

Enjoy it. If you like it, buy another.


fighter4fun

have a few its good stuff and for what you paid for it 👌


hemanbeefcake

BT is my go to for sipping... Knob Creek for mixing. I have a lot to learn lol


Inside_Touch400

Its a little bottle of buffalo trace.. drink it and stop being a pssy


Triingtolivee

Awful price. RIP to your wallet.


Longjumping_Age1651

That you got it for $25 is a bargain


lostime05

For a 375? No


[deleted]

Shame, you'd have been better off getting Knob Creek 9 year and spent 3 dollars more for twice the whiskey. Decent bourbon, definitely worth at least $15 in a bottle that size.


hinessight2020

Good price, it runs that here in AZ. Open it and enjoy it….it’s good!!👍🥃👍


Lure852

Bad price. Just drink it. It's decent.


Croquette_Pepe

Holy thats expensive. In Europe its around 28 Dollars for a 1l of it.


JakeBEE-

It's one the best cheaper whiskeys out there once you dive into it, it's extremely hard to stop drinking


majessa

Price seems high but it’s a consistent and decent bourbon. It’s my every day drinker. Fortunately our Costco stocks it by the pallet for $22 for 750ml.


Frisinator

Not a good price. Open it and enjoy it.


sunstar33

Perfect time


dipstick73

Like many others on here have said $25 is about the price of 750ml usually. In my case 750ml costs about $23. Can usually only get it every few months cause it sells out fast. It’s a good whiskey though. Nothing crazy special.


cmannion4

From what I’ve experienced with Buffalo trace is it a solid 30-40 dollar palate bottle (750ml) that goes for around 50-70 depending because of hype and them producing so few bottles. After having it, I’d much rather have something more readily available for that price point like woodford reserve (1.5L) or some single barrel releases of other brands.


Squirrely_Mann

Why is Buffalo Trace regarded as “special occasion” whiskey?


seanrsc1

It’s just the fact that I have never had it, never really see it for sale in my area. After reading everyone’s comments it certainly doesn’t sound like I’m going to save it for the birth of my first child or anything. Christmas Eve sounds appropriate


njakubow

Standard price. Definitely open it up.


holderthe1st

Fairly basic, cheap bottle. Though it is good just drink it


zak_the_maniac

Bro it's buffalo trace you paid double for. People are seriously paying that much and treating it as a unicorn now? Disgraceful.


The_Kraken_Wakes

Drink it. I was able to get a handle for around 50. It’s nothing worth “saving”. It’s a solid bottle for mixing for sure. If you haven’t had it, drink it. Then you’ll know.


Kalilofo

Got ripped off for sure 750mL is between $20-25 it's a pretty good whiskey one personally I wouldn't save for a special occasion


Ariak

Bruh you got ripped off. It’s $25 for a 750 where I am


Farrt1

I actually just bought 36 bottles of the 1L for $36 each. Giving it to friends and family who can't find it anywhere near them this holiday.


Illudium-Q36

Save...Buffalo Trace....for a ...special occasion. WTF?
