Taste
E.H. Taylor Old Fashioned Sour Mash Bourbon is one of many versions crafted by E.H. Taylor and still produced at the award-winning Buffalo Trace Distillery. This exclusive sour mash bourbon was crafted from Mash Bill #1, like other great blends such as Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace, and George T. Stagg. It is a sour mash of corn, rye, and malted barley, which has a lower content of rye, than mash bill #2. This bourbon features prominent notes of caramel corn, mingled with notes of a rich butterscotch. The palate is full of sweet notes, layered with notes of spices and tobacco. The finish is profound with lingering hints of licorice. 

History
E.H. Taylor Old Fashioned Sour Mash Bourbon is a limited edition sour mash bourbon that has been produced with E.H. Taylor's original souring method, which allows the mash to sour naturally before being distilled. Even though this blend was distilled in 2002, it wasn't bottled until 2012. This exclusive bourbon is 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.
