Colonel E.H. Taylor Straight Rye Whiskey
E.H. Taylor, Jr. Straight RyeStraight Kentucky Rye Whiskey
Straight Rye Whiskey has experienced a strong resurgence in the American whiskey landscape over the last decade, yet Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. was making this style of Kentucky rye whiskey more than 100 years ago. This small batch, Bottled-in-Bond 100 proof straight rye whiskey pays tribute to the former Buffalo Trace Distillery owner with a unique rye whiskey reminiscent of days long past.
An altogether different recipe and profile than Sazerac Rye which is also part of the Buffalo Trace family, this recipe contains just rye and malted barley, no corn. The result is an aroma full of dried fruit, black pepper, and a touch of fresh dill. A small sip of this rye whiskey brings an array of flavors both sweet and savory with a terrific balance of dark spices and subtle caramel overtones. The finish is especially pleasing with an oaky dryness that lingers just long enough.
