Col. E.H. Taylor Old Fashioned Sour Mash Bourbon

Country: USA
Region: Kentucky
Type: Bourbon
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 50%
Score: 85 points

Col. E.H. Taylor was one of the early owners of what is now Buffalo Trace Distillery, and this bourbon uses a special sour mash process that he developed. The nose has notes of corn on the cob, vanilla, peaches, and oak. The taste is spicy with cinnamon and slightly minty with a hint of pine sap. The finish is dry, oaky, spicy, and solid. Water adds balance and rounds out the mintiness.
