Review #54 | /r/Bourbon Review #27 – Colonel E.H. Taylor Single Barrel
The Schtick: This is a single barrel offering from the same line as the Colonel E.H.Taylor Small Batch. It is also bottled in bond. It is important to note that, like Eagle Rare 10, no real barrel information is given.
Distiller: Buffalo Trace
Bottler: Buffalo Trace
ABV: 50% ABV
Mashbill: Buffalo Trace Mashbill #1 (Low Rye Content)
Nose: Vanilla, some corn and woodiness, followed by lots of sugary sweet.
Taste: Vanilla, buttery nougat and some minor spice.
Finish: Long, spicier than I expected, complex and well blended. Some more vanilla, a little more sweetness and a gentle departure.
Overall: I want some more of it but it’s hard to find and expensive in these parts. I think I’ll hold off for now, but it is a pleasant and enjoyable dram even if it’s not wildly complex.
