Colonel E.H. Taylor 100 Proof Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml)
Rye has experienced a strong resurgence in the American whiskey landscape. This small batch, bottled-in-bond 100 proof straight rye pays tribute to the former distillery owner. According to producers, Buffalo Trace, it is “An altogether different recipe and profile than Sazerac Rye, containing just rye and malted barley, no corn. The result is an aroma full of dried fruit, black pepper, and touch of fresh dill.”
Other reviews... Very different than other straight rye whiskeys you might be familiar with: there's no corn in the recipe, just a large percentage of rye and a small amount of malted barley. It's youthful, with spice as the defining character (cinnamon, mint, allspice, freshly ground pepper), balanced by blackberry preserve, caramel, butterscotch, and a hint of cotton candy. Lingering dried spice and polished oak on the finish provide balance to the sweeter notes. 50% Alc./Vol. 85 points
