I'm ordering trees and Butternut came up from my wife. I've never eaten a butternut nut before. Have sawed a few (white walnut) logs though.

Has anyone ever eaten a butternut nut before? Is it really a rich, sweet buttery tasting but or is that just a name?

I never have, but;
"Are butternuts edible by humans? They most certainly are, and have been eaten by Native Americans for centuries. Butternut trees, or white walnut trees, produce rich and delicious nuts."

I'm going to order a couple of butternut saplings and air layer them as they grow. It will be many years before they nut but that's ok, they should go well with english walnuts that I will plant along with them.

Read about that, it is probably Black Walnut, but I don't think Walnut allows "foreign" trees to grow near them... could be wrong...
