Colonel E.H. Taylor Jr. Seasoned Wood, 50%
Price: $70 ● Issue: Summer 2016 ● Reviewer: John Hansell
A wheated recipe bourbon that was aged in experimental barrels with staves utilizing various methods of seasoning. Oak spice is important with a wheated bourbon, as there is no rye to balance the sweet notes, and this whiskey does a great job here. Delicate in personality, with nutty caramel, dried citrus, and golden raisin segueing to polished leather, warming cinnamon, clove, and hints of a cigar humidor.
