Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Straight Rye Bottled in Bond

Rye — Kentucky, USA

3.0 out of 5 stars
Surprised how smooth this is for a rye as I’m used to Ryes that bring big spicy flavor, and this brings a whole different approach. There is definitely a lot of similarities between EHT Small Batch and this with Raisins. The nose is mild for a rye, with raisins, cinnamon, and dark fruits. The palate is really easy going for a rye, not too much heat or spice and is on the sweeter side. The finish is almost non-existant. For the price, I expected a lot more. I like ryes with some boldness to them, and it’s just not here. Might be a good rye for someone just getting into it, but I’d never pay $70 for that. Low rating on this one...6.1/10
