All E.H. Taylor whiskeys, apart from the Barrel Proof, are Bottled in Bond. This Colonel E.H. Taylor Single Barrel is no exception to that rule. It is aged for at least four years and bottled at a mandatory 100 proof. Even though it is a single barrel bourbon, there is no barrel number on the bottle or tube that it comes in. The Colonel E.H. Taylor bourbon brand was set up by Sazerac at the Buffalo Trace Distillery in 2009, after the company acquired the rights from Beam. It’s an homage to bourbon pioneer Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr., who fought for the Bottled-in-Bond Act in 1897.
