Buffalo Trace White Dog Mash #1.  What bourbon looks like, before the barrel.

Grainy and yeasty on the nose.  Light citrus, sweet, spicy, and highly alcoholic, the White Dog comes in at 125 proof (bottled at still strength).  When aged properly, it becomes a most delicious George T Stagg or Eagle Rare bourbon.  

While I would not recommend drinking this straight, it is terrific as a comparative educational tasting exercise.
