The E.H. Taylor Jr. Single Barrel Bourbon was aged for 11 years, 7 months in the warehouse Taylor built in 1881. It bottled at 100 proof (50% alcohol by volume).
It joins the Old Fashioned Sour Mash Bourbon Buffalo Trace released earlier this year that began a line to be released one-by-one over the next few years. The vintage label and canister are reminiscent of Taylor’s bottles nearly one hundred years ago.
Taylor was a great-nephew of President Zachary Taylor. He was mayor of Frankfort, and a member of both the Kentucky General Assembly and State Senate. He is recognized as one of the pioneers of the bourbon industry.
The E.H. Taylor, Jr. Single Barrel will be available at a suggested retail price of $59.99 per 750ml bottle.
