Kentucky/ Buffalo Trace, USA

Colonel E.H.Taylor, Single Barrel, Bottled in Bond (mind. 4 Jahre alt, nach dem Hören-Sagen zw. 8 + 12 Jahre), 750ml, 50%

Von uns bekommt er 90 Punkte aufgrund der fruchtigen Komplexität. Die Dichtheit und Fülle der Aromen weist unzweifelhaft auf eine längere Lagerzeit als die vorgeschriebenen 4 Jahre hin. Von uns geschätzt: 10 Jahre!
Andere Geschmackseindrücke: Made by the Buffalo Trace Distilling Co., this single barrel release is aged exclusively in "Warehouse C", which was built by Taylor himself in 1888. It's proven to be a superior aging warehouse. Each barrel is hand-picked and bottled in Bond at 100 proof to honor its namesake.
Other reviews... Deep amber color. Rich, densely layered aromas of lush brown spices, caramelized nuts and raisins, cherry cola, and maple fudge with a vibrant, fruity-yet-dry medium-full body and an oaky, drying, spice cake, grain, sassafras, spice and limestone dust finish. Very masculine. 50% Alc./Vol. International Review of Spirits Award: Silver Medal 89 points (Highly Recommended) -
...Absolutely no single cask whiskey, of any type, has a right to be this good. 96.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2021
...No shrinking violet here; this is a big, powerful Bourbon, with a finish that just won’t quit. The honey-colored spirit has a sweet, heavy caramel aroma with a deep, somber espresso note. Look for a round burnt-orange flavor and lots of cinnamon and nutmeg on the dry, elongated finish. Temper the alcohol sting with ice water—it’s 100 proof, after all. History buffs will love the old-school style of the bottle and label. 94 points -
