As founding father of the modern bourbon industry, Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. left an indelible legacy. His dedication to distilling began at the close of the Civil War when he began renovation of the O.F.C. Distillery, today known as Buffalo Trace Distillery. Taylor fought diligently for the Bottled- In –Bond act of 1897,the first far reaching quality control measure ever implemented in the whiskey landscape in America. Taylor was best known for his whiskey – recognized as topmost class. He brought the industry to a new level of integrity and acclaim by implementing innovative whiskey making methods, lobbying for better quality regulation, and creating the first distillery that was a place of beauty and intrigue, welcoming visitors to come see how he made his products. Col. Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. unarguably left his mark on the American Whiskey industry as it is today.Straight Rye Whiskey has experienced a strong resurgence in the American whiskey landscape, yet Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. was making this style more than 100 years ago. This small batch, Bottled-in-Bond 100 proof straight rye whiskey pays tribute to the former distillery owner. Aged in Warehouse C, built under E.H. Taylor's leadership, this unique rye whiskey is reminiscent of days long past.
An altogether different recipe and profile than Sazerac Rye, this recipe contains just rye and malted barley, no corn. The result is an aroma full of dried fruit, black pepper, and touch of fresh dill. A small sip brings an array of flavors both sweet and savory with a terrific balance of dark spices and subtle caramel overtones. The finish is especially pleasing with an oaky dryness that lingers just long enough.
