E.H. Taylor Jr. Seasoned Wood Bourbon

The latest E. H. Taylor bourbon has just been released in limited quantities!  I was excited to get my hands on this as it's the first wheated bourbon in the E.H Taylor collection. In addition, seasoned wood is unique as it refers to a proprietary process used to season the staves before they were crafted into barrels.

-Bottled in Bond, press release states "aged for well over a decade"
-100 proof 
-Price: $69

Nose: Sweet caramel and vanilla cake wrapped in a soft wheat bouquet. It's a very delicate aroma, packed with citrus notes, spicy clove, bl
ack pepper, and charred oak.  

Taste: Sweet upfront with a bright mid palate bursting with caramel, butterscotch, and orange peel. The body is soft, yet it's complexity is enhanced by a backbone of spices, predominantly clove, cinnamon, black pepper, and oak.

Finish: Shorter than anticipated with an aftertaste of spice and wood. 

Conclusion: Every time one of these limited bourbons is announced, a cloud of hype is formed and the internet is abuzz with anticipation. All in all, this is your standard Buffalo Trace wheater
with additional layers of depth and complexity; it's a very good bourbon that easily met my expectations.

My Rating:  B+ (Very Good)
