BourbonBlog.com first told you about the Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. Bourbon, named after man who introduced the first climate controlled aging warehouses, used a patented sour mash technique, and fought for the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. This new line of premium whiskeys bears his name and Buffalo Trace Distillery is introducing the first in the series as a recreated traditional sour mash.
This is being produced as a limited edition, one-time offering and we bring you our review here…
Bourbon: Colonel E. H. Taylor Jr. Old Fashioned Sour Mash Bourbon
Distillery: Buffalo Trace Distillery, Frankfort, Kentucky
Age: 9 years old
Proof: 100 Proof, 50% ABV
Color: Medium to deep amber
Nose: Heavy oak rounded with sugary aroma
Taste: A serious, full flavor that has the DNA of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection, but also offers notes that can’t be found in any of these. Rich cinnamon, apricots, large bites of the best of the sweet and the best of the oak. If a glass of “Bold Bourbon Pie” existed, this could be it.
Finish: Luscious, smooth, and satisfying.
