I just received my bottle and only had time for a small dram before heading out for a meeting. First thing I noticed was the excellent, non-alcoholic nose, which was an indication of what was next. The first sip lacked the often sharp bite that accompanies a good rye, (this rye was not wimpy however), but instead had a pleasant kick to it. The subsequent sips revealed lots of flavors, most of which I am still trying to discern. I would strongly recommend this to any lover of rye, bourbon or scotches for that matter.
Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Straight Rye 750MLAdd to Wishlist
Colonel E.H. Taylor Straight Rye Whiskey
Smells of vanilla, pepper, maple syrup, cinnamon, and brown sugar and tastes likespice and chili powder mixed with vanilla, cocoa and various sugars.
I had previously tried the barrel proof E.H. Taylor and this proves to be a worthy adversary. If you are a fan of RYE then I highly recommend the Colonel's Rye.
