McAfee's Benchmark is a rye-recipe Kentucky straight bourbon from the Buffalo Trace distillery. The Mcafee's Benchmark brand was created by Seagram's in the late 1960s to be a luxury or premium-level bourbon. At that time, the whiskey was not called McAfee, but simply Benchmark Bourbon; and the name McAfee came much later. Originally Benchmark was sold in a decanter-style bottle with a black label.
The nose bears caramel notes with a delicate stone-fruit backdrop. A robust and sturdy palate with some fine leather notes mingling with dry tobacco, a touch of oak and a hint of dried cherries. The main theme with Benchmark’s taste is sweetness. The finish is smooth and calming.

Bourbon is always whiskey, but whiskey is not always bourbon. Bourbon whiskey is America's native spirit. A strict set of federal trade regulations defines what's what.
Bourbon must be made from at least 51% corn mash. Corn contributes a noticeable sweetness to the final product, and often makes up a much larger percentage of the mash bill in a bourbon whiskey. Whiskey the American kind, spelled with an "e" is a distilled spirit made from fermented grain and usually aged in an oak barrel.
