Colonel E.H. Taylor Barrel Proof Batch 4

Colonel EH BP

Price: $75 for 750ml

Distilled/Owned by: Buffalo Trace / Sazerac

Region: Frankfort, Kentucky

63.6% ABV

Aged For: 6 – 8 Years

Mashbill: Buffalo Trace Mashbill #1

Cask Type: New charred oak, Char #4

Chill Filtered: No

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn



Color: Dark copper

Nose: Caramel, oaked corn, vanilla, brown sugar, and light fruits. Much more delicate than the proof.

Taste: Toasted marshmallow, cracked black pepper, milk chocolate, coffee bean, and oak. In between watery and thick.

Finish: Warm with spice and decent length. Vanilla and wood are predominate.

Thoughts: Not nearly as powerful as Stagg Jr. from the same mash bill, and more vanilla and no cherry to be seen. Probably the most delicate of the barrel proof bourbons I have come across, but very enjoyable.

Score: 85 out of 100
