A fitting tribute to The Colonel’s time as a grain trader Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr., often referred to as 'The Colonel' was a man of many hats.

He was related to the 12th U.S. president, played a vital part in the passing of the Bottled-in-Bond law, as well as owning several distilleries (and, since we mentioned them, a cool collection of top hats). An all-around gentlemanly gent, no doubt! And if you’re going to name something after one of the fathers of modern Bourbon, it better deliver. Today, the line of Taylor Bourbons are owned by the Sazerac Company and distilled in their famous Buffalo Trace facility. Make no mistake, this is one of their premium brands and they made sure to do right by the Colonel.

This limited edition 'gimmick' Four Grain Bourbon is based on a mash bill of corn, rye, wheat and malted barley. It's inspired by the Colonel's time during the Civil War when he worked as a grain trader. During that time he learned lots of stuff. Especially that grains need to come from the same farmers and harvest in order to maintain consistency and superior quality. That's why we bet he'd be extra proud of this Bourbon, especially after its 12 years of aging. And since this one is Bottled-in-Bond, meaning that the liquor comes from a single distillation season, one distiller and one distillery. Just what the Colonel fought for.

Ratings & Reviews
Mal
Mal,
Great bourbon have had this as well as the small batch now but this price is unrealistic. In Oregon the small batch is $47 and the Barrel Proof is $73. This inflation from companies is getting out of control. Yes, very balanced and great whiskey but def not worth this price tag.
 
David
David,
Excellent bourbon, the price is silly. I have a bottle of this on the shelf and paid nowhere near $1500. Ask around before you blow your money here
 
Marcus
Marcus,
This is one of the best bourbons out there! But charging $1,500+ for a $70 bottle is just criminal.
 
Dave
Dave,
I had it at a friend's house and loved it. I'm usually not a bourbon drinker but this was superb. I had no idea how expensive it was and neither did he as he received it as a gift.
 
Rafael
Rafael,
An amazing taste and finish but do not get it here. Some serious price gouging
 
Brian
Brian,
Why in the world has the price gone up ~$700 in a about week?! Already crazy overpriced...
 
Tracy
Tracy,
Very nice bourbon, very balanced. The price advertised here is ridiculous however. If you can find at a decent price, it's a good one. But not at the price here.
 
Mark
Mark,
Are you crazy putting it at this price? Way to make it accessible to the average drinker. Is this really on the same level as Pappy 12?
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Great whiskey. But not for that price. That’s not what I paid for it. It was close to retail to be honest.
 
Steve
Steve,
I don't know about the price...however, it's easily the most balanced bourbon I've had. As you bring it to your lips you get a whiff of nutty vanilla. The sweetness of the rye pops in at the perfect moment and it finishes simply, begging you to take another sip.

Solid Bourbon for when the favorites aren't directly available.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, creamy, Straight Bourbon Whiskey that has an aromatic birth with notes of caramel, hints of sweet vanilla, caramel corn, smoke & oak tannins; while a smooth & balanced life adds notes of corn, rye, wheat, malted barley & charred oak, that leads to a rich death with notes of fresh fruit & port.
 
Leigh
Leigh,
Very good not as smooth but a nice rich finish.
 
Steve
Steve,
Wow. Different than anything I have drank before. Very complex with caramel leather and a slight nuttiness.
 
Ian
Ian,
Perfect Balance. Col. Taylor's 4 Grain Offering has something for everyone. Deeply complex with barely a hint of smoke, the smooth texture and mouthfeel give way to a medley of grain flavors on the first sip that give you characteristics from each part of the mash bill, while other spirits end up relying heavily on a single flavor note. Rye is present but not overpowering, with the sweet corn bourbon notes as well as the texture and flavor of barley and wheat liquors. Honestly I'm not sure how they managed to balance all 4 so well! This is best neat or with extremely limited splash of water, don't waste any of the flavors by drowning them out! Deserving of the 2017 Jim Murray award without a doubt!
