House Bourbon Challenge: Buffalo Trace vs Bulleit

This is actually a rematch from my pre-blog life.  I had a pre-blog life?  Bulleit used to be my house bourbon of choice.  At some point, I decided that Buffalo Trace was worth the extra nickel.  Let's see how they stand up to one another side by side.

Bulleit is just harsh.  It's all tannin and corn.  The harshness does contrast well with vermouth in a Manhattan.  As always, the Trace is still great for the price.
