Benchmark Bourbon Old Number 8

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Benchmark Bourbon Old Number 8 to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Benchmark Bourbon Bottling Note

Benchmark by name, benchmark by nature. This really is one for the more well Bourbon producers to beat, and despite its status as an outsider, really warrants some attention - especially if cocktails are on the menu.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Aromatic and quite sweet. Soft toasty spices, salted caramel and vanilla pod earthiness.

Palate: A creamy spirit carrying custard, toffee apple and biscuity notes.

Finish: Cinnamon, chocolate digestives and tangerine.

Best value entry level bourbon !

One of the best value you can get out of a bourbon. The palates not quite up to wt101 or ew bib, but for its price, benchmark 8 is just wonderful if you like fruit vanilla and caramel nose and taste.

Smooth, hint of spice, no acetone aftertaste, really good on an ice ball.

My favorite "cheap" bourbon. $10 a 750ml bottle in Ohio. Yeah, I like Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace, Jefferson Reserve, and a whole bunch of other bourbons/whiskeys, but my go to is Benchmark 8.

I love the flavor

It's great but hard to find in rural western Oregon

Should be £15

Funny one this, thought I'd give it a shot as I'd heard it was a bit of a lottery. People saying it's what doesn't quite make the mark for standard buffalo trace? Not sure about that tbh. It's not bad. It's no frills bourbon. There's some interesting notes in there but it's so young and thin. It's better than beam white. From what they pay in the states for it £20 is a bit steep. Fork out another fiver and you can get an ezra brooks or Evan Williams or a standard heaven Hill.

Cheaper than Jack but not really worth it.

Cost $31 canadian that's with a $3 discount. Wtf? First time I've tried it here. Better than JB.

Best Bottom Shelf Bourbon

I drive across town to pick up a 750ml bottle for $8.49 here in Denver. Not as complex as most aged top shelf Bourbons but definitely not offensive like many other bottom shelf Bourbons. Except for Very Old Barton I doubt you can find a better bottom shelf Bourbon.
