Who is Colonel Taylor?
Bourbon founding father, Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. left a lasting legacy on the ever-growing industry. Even today the techniques he perfected in the Civil War era are still used today. Enter E.H. Taylor Small Batch Bourbon Bottled in Bond. Made by hand, each bottle contains bourbon aged in century old warehouses by Colonel Taylor.
With the purchase of his first distillery, O.F.C. Distillery, Colonel Taylor right away developed new equipment and sour mash techniques to perfect the process of producing bourbon. Not to mention, he was also a key player in the passing of the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897 which created a standard of quality for bourbon whiskey. While also holding the position of May of Frankfort, Kentucky for 16 years, Taylor had a major part in helping grow and develop the bourbon industry in the state.
Bottled in Bond
The E.H. Small Batch Bourbon was aged for 7 years in the famous Colonel Taylor warehouses, which were built in 1881. It’s one of the most affordable of the Buffalo Trace collection and presents a smooth and delicate character. A great spirit for sipping bottled at 100 proof.
The aroma is filled with your usual vanilla and caramel scents, but with an unexpected green apple and woody smell. The nose also presents unusual notes of honey and hot cinnamon. On the palate the corn base is apparent with notes of tangy apple cider, toffee and butter. Hints of butterscotch and caramel corn are also tasted on the first sip. The finish has just enough bite with a very pleasing medium-to-long finish with caramel lingering throughout.
Some of the various accolades E.H. Taylor Small Batch has received include:
- 97 Points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge (2 points higher than Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year Old Bourbon)
- Liquid Gold Award – 2014 Jim Murray’s Whisk Bible
