Colonel E H Taylor Single Barrel
Buffalo Trace Distillery releases the second limited edition Bourbon in the Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. collection with a Single Barrel Bourbon.
Age: 11 years and 7 months old
Proof: 100 Proof, 50% ABV
Color: Medium to deeper amber
Nose: Deep Oak, plums, and buttery. The nose contains much the signature oak DNA of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection and other Buffalo Trace Bourbons.
Taste: Enters sweet and buttery, goes to a mild zesty citrus character and the swallow is a prevalence of “smokiness” reminiscent of a Scotch. The acidic nature plays against the smoke in a strange fashion at first, but after more sips becomes an interesting journey.
This kind of smoke is rather unexpected flavor coming out of a Bourbon and delivers the the depth of the barrel in a fashion that we don’t taste often.
Finish: Long finish of serious oak stays firm on the tongue along with citrus, bitter, and tobacco.
