There’s shooters, and shots, and at the other end, there’s liquor like Col. E.H. Taylor, Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon, where the savouring’ begins from the outside in. Everything here speaks of detailed artisanal care, from the historically styled packaging to the pinpointing of the precise location of the barrels in which this small batch bottling aged for seven years: the sixth floor of Buffalo Trace Distillery’s Warehouse C, Frankfort, Frankfort County, Kentucky, family-owned, established in 1787. It is uncut, unfiltered rye recipe bourbon, bottled at the barrel proof of 134.5. In your glass, you can look for “an aroma of cooked, berries meets the nose, followed by a rich caramel and slightly floral smell. The taste is bold – full of spice that fills the mouth with a distinct flavor of toasty vanilla, dried oak and pepper. The finish is long and satisfying with a powerful rye character and lingering hints of fruit.” Extremely limited. $69.99.
