E.H. Taylor was an incredible pioneer in the history of Kentucky bourbon. Some even call him the father of modern bourbon because of his tireless efforts to get the Bottled in Bond act passed, therefore ensuring the uniform quality of spirits. This may be why he was given the honor of being a Kentucky Colonel, the highest civil award in the state. Just like Colonel Sanders! Colonel E.H. Taylor Seasoned Wood has been through quite an interesting ageing process. The barrels that the bourbon was aged in were made from staves that had either been sitting in an enzyme rich bath of hot water and then dried to the optimal humidity and staves that were seasoned outside for 6-12 months. These techniques draw the flavor out of the wood to make a truly unique bourbon that the Colonel would be proud of. It’s the 8th release in the Colonel E.H. Taylor range. On the nose you’ll find caramel and dried fruits while the palate shows citrus, cloves, butterscotch and almonds.
