The barrels used underwent multiple seasoning processes; some made with
staves seasoned outdoors for either 6 or 12 months, others made with staves
bathed in a heated, enzyme-rich water solution. A delicate aroma of caramel and
dried fruit is followed by a bright and pleasant first stip. Oak tannins are
balanced by a touch of butterscotch, almond, citrus notes, and a hint of spicy
clove. The body is soft and balanced with an aftertaste that lingers perfectly.

Colonel E.H. Taylor Cured Oak Straight Kentucky Bourbon 100 proof
Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Cured Oak Bourbon Whiskey gets its name from the special staves that were used for its barrels. These oak staves were allowed to dry outside in the open air for 13 months before they were used to construct the barrels. Six months is the normal dry time for staves used at Buffalo Trace who teamed up with their main cooperage partner, Independent Stave Company, in an attempt to allow the whiskey to abstract more of the flavors that are stored deep inside the oak staves.
This 17 year-old, 100 proof Bourbon was aged in Warehouse C, which Taylor himself erected in 1881 on the Buffalo Trace Distillery property. As a special limited edition release, it is a bourbon of great character, in honor of the man who would accept no less.
A complex bourbon whiskey with layers of depth. Notes of vanilla, toffee and figs are followed by subtle undertones of dry oak.

In the 19th century, New Orleans entertainment district was Bourbon Street, as it is today. “People starting asking for ‘that whiskey they sell on Bourbon Street,’” he says, “which eventually became ‘that bourbon whiskey.’” Still, Veach concedes, “We may never know who actually invented bourbon, or even who the first Kentucky distiller was.”
