EH TAYLOR Single Barrel was celebrating a history of tradition and the unique methods and recipes of the founding father of bourbon, Colonel E.H. Taylor’s Single Barrel Bourbon is a testament to the acclaimed distiller’s dedication to craftsmanship. Fantastically smooth and defined by the smokey undertones for which the brand has become renowned, the Single Barrel is a remarkable sipping bourbon that builds steadily on the palate and lingers in the mind. Spicy, sweet, and with buttery smoothness, Colonel E.H. Taylor Single Barrel Bourbon is a combination of the best a premium whiskey can offer at a more than accessible price.
Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. is widely considered one of the founding fathers of the bourbon industry, fighting for the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897, nearly three decades after he purchased what is now called Buffalo Trace Distillery. During his time, Taylor implemented several innovative methods still used today, including climate controlled aging warehouses. Many of the barrels selected for the E.H. Taylor, Jr. Single Barrel are aged in Warehouse C, which was built by Taylor in 1881 and proven to be an excellent aging warehouse. Each barrel is hand-picked and Bottled in Bond at 100 proof to honor its namesake.
The aroma carries lightly toasted oak, with dried figs and butterscotch. One sip brings flavors of sweetness balanced with tobacco and dark spices. The finish is just long enough to prepare the palette for another sip. The bottle itself is a likeness to Colonel Taylor’s original design used over a century ago.
The barrel selected for this single barrel bourbon whiskey comes from the heart of the climate-controlled aging Warehouse C, that was built by EH Taylor in 1885. The distillery still implements several innovative methods that EH Taylor perfected back in the day. Each barrel is hand-picked and Bottled in Bond at 100 proof to honour its namesake.
The bourbon whiskey is a Buffalo Trace product made from the very popular Mash #1 (speculated to be 75% corn, 10% rye, 15% barley) which is also used for bourbons such as Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare 10, and Stagg Jr.
