E.H. Taylor Barrel-Aged Big Foot Bourbon is one of many versions of E.H. Taylor. This marvelous barely wine is an Ale finished in bourbon barrels that has matured for Seven years. It is produced at the award-winning Buffalo Trace Distillery, like other great blends such as Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace, and George T. Stagg. It is the first beer collaboration for the E.H. Taylor brand. Delivering one of their highest ABV beers ever in partnership with Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. This spirit features profound notes of molasses on the nose. The palate awakes you with a savory caramel mouthful mingled with a rich blend of molasses, and dark fruits. The finish is warm with lingering notes of burnt sugar on the backend of the palate.

History
E.H. Taylor Barrel-Aged Big Foot Bourbon is a 7-year vintage of Bigfoot Barley wine finished in a hand-selected Kentucky bourbon barrel. This is a limited edition crafted by a true innovator whose vision was ahead of his time. In 1869, E.H. Taylor acquired a small distillery located in Frankfurt Kentucky on the edge of the Kentucky River. It was originally named The Old Fire Copper Distillery. There he began renovating and modernizing the plant by purchasing copper fermentation tanks, new grain grinding equipment, and unique, columnar stills. During his time there, Taylor implemented several innovative distilling techniques, including aging whiskey in climate-controlled Rick houses. Other distilleries weren't aging their bourbon, they were adding juices and syrups to sweeten their bourbon, while others added acid and tobacco. Instead, E.H. Taylor used his distilling experience and political pedigree, to partner with Treasury Secretary John G. Carlisle. Together they were instrumental in changing history. In 1897 they passed the Bottled-In-Bond Act. This meant that any spirit labeled as "Bonded" or "Bottled-in-Bond" must be the product of only one distiller, one distillery, during one distillation season. Additionally, the Act required that bonded spirits were supervised by the U.S. government for at least four years and to be bottled at least 100 proof, in federally bonded warehouses. This fine bourbon is crafted from hand-selected barrels and is bottled directly from the barrel at more than 125 proof. It represents the way bourbon was produced in the days before Prohibition when Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. was the owner of Buffalo Trace Distillery.
