The Lebron James of Straight Rye Whiskey.

In 1830, a baby called Edmund Haynes Taylor Jr. was born and he became the father of modern Whiskey (when he grew up, naturally). Raised by the twelfth US President... We thought that was worth mentioning. He made top-notch Whiskeys and made sure the Bottled-in-Bond law was passed. So it's no wonder Buffalo Trace Distillery decided to name their fantastic limited expression after the dude.

Colonel E.H. Taylor Straight Rye Whiskey is made from a mash of rye and malted barley, bottled in bond (a product of a single distiller) at 100 proof. Not only is this rare treasure a homage to booze history, it's really actually good! Dark spices, caramel undertones, cinnamon and vanilla hiding in the back... Look, you don't have to listen to us; Jim Murray himself gave this bottle an almost perfect score of 97 points and said it shouldn't be left on a shelf.

Steve,
This is my favorite rye right now.

Vince,
This is easily one of my favorite bourbons of all time. It is perfect, neat or wet. The Rye is not overpronounced and the sweet is subtle. It goes down easily and can be complex at the end. Look for honey and leather with a hint of pepper.

The first Bottled in Bond rye I had ever purchased, worth the money.

A very good Rye, has a briny element to it. Nice and light but has layers. The price point might be a little high but the bottle looks nice.
