Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Straight Rye Bottled in Bond
Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. // Kentucky, USA
What started as a limited run whiskey with an old fashioned sour mash has turned into a year-round, multi-bottling very popular line. While Taylor no longer utilizes the old fashioned sour mash, it's still a damn fine and solid product. This is a no-corn rye whiskey and is bottled in bond.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Nose is full of fresh cracked pepper, chili powder, chocolate, and barrel spices. As you taste, you get cinnamon, rye spice, and dark fruits, all backed with a Mary Jane candy sweetness. The finish is long, dark, and complex with spice and pit fruits coming back. If you have a little bit of expendable cash and see this in the store for under $85, then grab yourself a bottle."
