Yet another yummy release in the E.H. Taylor range, bottled in 2016. All E.H. Taylor apart from the Barrel Proof are Bottled in Bond, meaning that they are bottled at 100 proof. It is aged for at least four years and bottled at a mandatory 100 proof. Like other Kentucky Straight Bourbon made at the Buffalo Trace distillery (Eagle Rare 10, Stagg Jr.), this one is made from mash bill #1. 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 hommage to bourbon pioneer Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr., who fought for the Bottled-in-Bond Act in 1897.
