E.H. Taylor, Jr. Single Barrel Bourbon. An excellent brand owned by Buffalo Trace that uses similar methods and recipes to the ones Colonel E. H. Taylor introduced and improved during his time as a bourbon distiller in the late 1800s. The Single Barrel release is made with specially selected barrel exclusively aged in Warehouse C, which Taylor built himself in 1881! What a guy. E.H. Taylor
Nose: Some pretty spicy notes, rich with oak. It’s cooled down with fruity figs and plums.
Palate: Sweet and buttery, with a surprising hint of orange peel. Some tobacco smokiness follows.
Finish: Very long indeed, the tobacco notes in full effect.
Overall: That Colonel E.H. Taylor sure knew what he was doing, and the distillers of this single barrel bourbon definitely do too. Simply fantastic. E.H. Taylor
