Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedThe high alcohol content is at the front of the nose but there is a trace of sweet prunes. Take your time with this whiskey. It's very spicy and grabs the tip of your tongue, but the sweetness I find in Taylor is there. Not a flavorful finish but the heat does grab you in the chest after a pause. Very nice.
Russell's Reserve 10 Year Bourbon
