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.

Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
