Review #88 | /r/Bourbon Review #49 – Colonel E.H. Taylor Barrel Proof
The Schtick: This is a bonded barrel proof from the CEHT line from Buffalo Trace. CEHT uses Buffalo Trace’s Mashbill #1 (low rye).
Distiller: Buffalo Trace
Bottler: Buffalo Trace
ABV: 63.6% ABV | 127.2pf
Nose: Buttery caramel. Like the small batch BiB cranked up to 12. Vanilla. Molasses. Delicious. It’s sweet and ever so slightly spicey. Not at all like a Booker’s.
Taste: Sweet, complex. Vanilla. nougat and cream. spice and molasses. More cream.
Finish: Long, well blended and not overtly rough, even given the proof.
Overall: This met and exceeded expectations I had. Good all around product well enhanced by elevated proof.
