Buffalo Trace pays tribute to Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr., the distillery’s former owner, with the release of a special edition bourbon whiskey. This 100 proof small batch bourbon puts a unique spin on the spirit by using Amaranth, corn, and malted barley instead of the traditional rye-based recipe. This bottled-in-batch bourbon has been aged for over a decade in advance of its once-in-a-lifetime release, making it a must-have for devout fans of Buffalo Trace.
The complexity of that Amaranth base offers a complex flavor profile unlike any bourbon on the market. Its spearmint and butterscotch nose is accentuated by a honey and pecan finish that captures the most quintessential tastes of the American South. The Buffalo Trace E.H. Taylor, Jr. Small Batch Bourbon is the tenth edition of the special collection of whiskies paying homage to the former master distiller that goes back to 2011. The bourbon hits shelves in late July with a $70 price tag for a 750ml bottle that puts a unique spin on a Kentucky-bred favorite.
