COLONEL E.H.TAYLOR, JR. OLD FASHIONED SOUR MASH BOURBON WHISKEY

Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr., the man who introduced the first climate-controlled aging warehouses, used a patented sour mash technique, and fought for the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897, has a line of premium whiskeys bearing his name.  Buffalo Trace Distillery has recreated his traditional sour mash and produced a limited edition, one-time offering.  This bourbon was aged for nine years and “Bottled in Bond” at 1OO proof.  Taylor was the great-nephew of President Zachary Taylor, mayor of Frankfort, State Representative to the Kentucky General Assembly and a member of the State Senate.  Throughout his career, Taylor was responsible for the development of seven different distilleries in the area and is widely considered one of the founding fathers of the bourbon industry.  This Old Fashioned Sour Mash Bourbon is the first of several new E.H.Taylor, Jr. whiskeys to be released over the next few years.  Suggested retail is $7O per 75Oml bottle.  Available from Horizon Beverage Company.
