Colonel E.H. Taylor is known as one of the founding fathers of the bourbon Industry. This whiskey pays tribute to the man who purchased what is now the Buffalo Trace distillery back in 1870. His dedication to distilling helped develop innovative techniques, that are still used today, including the climate controlled warehouses. For more information visit www.buffalotracedistillery.com
This single barrel bourbon whiskey is aged exclusively in warehouse C; built by Taylor back in 1881. It’s a true sipping bourbon.
The aroma carries lightly toasted oak, with dried figs and butterscotch. Flavours of sweetness balanced with tobacco and dark spices. The finish is just long enough to prepare the palate for another sip.
