"Most bourbons use either rye or wheat for their third grain; this new release from E. H. Taylor uses both, hence the "Four Grain" name. The combination works out beautifully. This is a decadent bourbon, with notes of vanilla, almond, and butterscotch, all backed by a 100-proof spine that keeps it structured and just a touch spicy. Sipping bourbons don't get much better than this, and it keeps one coming back for more."
