Colonel EH Taylor Single Barrel
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.
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.
