E.H. Taylor, Jr. Seasoned Wood
In 1869, Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. purchased a small distillery on the banks of the Kentucky River and named it O.F.C. He embarked on a massive renovation of the distillery, investing a small fortune to enhance production methods and beautify the grounds. Taylor also introduced many innovative techniques and elevated the quality of his whiskeys above all others at that time. This bourbon embraces Taylorís spirit of innovation. It was aged inside new oak barrels crafted from staves treated with an innovative process of bathing and natural outdoor seasoning. This technique pulled rich flavors from the wood, to make the whiskey aged inside the barrels like no other. Using a unique wheat recipe mash bill, the result is a whiskey with bright, citrus flavors followed by spicy undertones. Savor every sip of this truly unique bourbon whiskey.
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.
