Colonel EH Taylor Jr Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon

American Whiskey Taste Master 2020

A Master‐worthy Bourbon was discovered in the ultra‐premium contingent of The American Whiskey Masters 2020 – Colonel EH Taylor Jr Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon. The “classic style” whiskey was praised for its “fruity touches”, while being “lighter” and “more delicate”.

Commenting on the overall flight, judge Abbott noted: “This flight was definitely a game of two halves. There were classic styles but also very fruity styles of whiskey.”

The whiskey takes its name from the founding father of the Bourbon industry, colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor Jr. He began distilling at the end of the Civil War in the US when he bought the OFC Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky, which is where he developed numerous production techniques that are still used across the industry today. The Small Batch Bourbon is matured inside warehouses built by Taylor.
