Taste
E.H. Taylor Warehouse C Tornado Surviving Bourbon is limited edition bourbon crafted by E.H. Taylor and still produced at the award-wining Buffalo Trace Distillery. This 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 is smooth and luxurious with notes of rye and malted barley, sweet dried fruit, black pepper, and a touch of fresh dill and subtle caramel overtones, with an oaky finish. 

History
E.H. Taylor Warehouse C Tornado Surviving Bourbon is an exclusive limited edition bourbon that has been produced from a selection of 93 special casks that were housed in Buffalo Trace Distillery’s landmark Warehouse C. Struck by a massive tornado in April of 2006, the warehouse’s nearly 24,000 barrels were left exposed to the natural elements. Buffalo Trace decided to bottle these barrels separately, as the sweltering Kentucky heat had accelerated the aging process, creating a distinct flavor. 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.
