About Colonel E.H. Taylor Jr. Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey
Colonel E.H. Taylor Jr. Single Barrel Bourbon. On February 12, 1830, Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. — widely considered the father of modern bourbon — was born in Columbus, Kentucky. Orphaned as a baby, Taylor was adopted by Edmund Haynes Taylor, Sr., and was raised in Louisiana by his great-uncle, Zachary Taylor (who would later become the twelfth President of the United States). After attending the Boyer’s French School in New Orleans, Taylor moved back to Kentucky and matriculated to B. B. Sayer’s Academy. Following in the footsteps of his father, Taylor became involved in banking and came to the aid of several Kentucky distilleries that were suffering from Reconstruction.
At the time, an overwhelming number of distilleries were still not aging their whiskey. In order to make their spirits palatable, some distillers and retailers added juices and syrups to sweeten their bourbon. While others added acid and tobacco to give the whiskey its signature, amber hue.
Colonel E.H. Taylor Jr. Single Barrel Bourbon is aged for 11 years and 7 months in new, American oak casks in a century-old warehouse constructed by Taylor. Once the bourbon has reached its peak of maturity, it is bottled in bond at 100 proof. Taylor Single Barrel Bourbon has an aroma of oaky spices, figs and maple syrup. The notes of orange peel, dates, roasted nuts and tobacco lead to a sweet finish that is complemented by a hint of intense oak.
