Character Goatson
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.

Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
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.
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.
