Colonel E.H. Taylor Bourbon....$56.99
"A few years ago at a tasting with some distillery retirees, a method for making "Old Fashioned Sour Mash" whiskey was recounted. The process, previously unbeknownst to us, replicated the way in which Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr., made sour mash in his day. As father of the modern bourbon industry, Taylor's patented techniques involved allowing the mash to sour naturally for days before distillation. Distilled in 2002, and using Taylor's original souring methods, we believe this whiskey delivers character and body like none other today. Colonel Taylor, a name synonymous with quality whiskey-making, might have even said that this whiskey is "of Topmost Class".
This whiskey begins with a floral aroma and an undertone of freshly baked bread. The palate is unusually fresh and light; honey drizzled over toast. Uncommonly sweet. The sour mashing technique highlights the yeast. Reminiscent an honest whisky of old, the clean finish hints of leather and tobacco."
