Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr.
Small Batch Bottled in Bond Bourbon
100 Proof | 750 mL
As one founding father of the bourbon industry, Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. left an indelible legacy. His dedication to distilling began at the close of the Civil War when he purchased O.F.C. Distillery. There, he developed innovative techniques that are still in use today. He and Secretary of the Treasury, John G. Carlisle, helped pioneer the Bottled in Bond Act of 1897, which means that the bourbon come from barrels all produced at one distillery, in a single season, and then stored in a bonded warehouse for at least four years before being bottled at 100 proof. Made by hand, this Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey has been aged inside century old warehouses constructed by E.H. Taylor, Jr in 1881. This bourbon is a true sipping whiskey that honors the uncompromising legacy of E.H. Taylor, Jr. with distinctive caramel corn sweetness, toffee, butterscotch, green apple, licorice that is slightly tart with a long dry finish. - Casey Teague, Whisk(e)y Specialist, H&F Bottle Shop
