Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Amaranth Bourbon Bottled in Bond

Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

4.5 out of 5 stars
Nose: Sweet cherry, spices, cloves, old leather, wood shavings. Taste: sweet, then spicy, then hot, cherries and apples, brown sugar, slight heavy cream or horchata. Experience: hard to find a clear experience for me. It's an armchair bourbon for sure but a warm and cozy armchair, with some cider and cinnamon sticks. Was hoping I wouldn't like this, as it is impossible to find and a limited release. But damn, it's good. There are far cheaper and more accessible bourbons that come pretty close, but it stands up next to The Buffalo Trace Antique collection and other great whiskies.
