E.H Taylor 18 years marriage Bourbon Whiskey, Known as the founding father of the modern bourbon industry, Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. was committed to making unparalleled bourbon through his steadfast attention to detail and passion for innovation.
His constant drive for perfection revolutionized the industry, with many of his techniques still in use today.
This unique bourbon combines barrels from three signature mashbills that matured for eighteen years, including two different rye bourbon mashbills and our wheated bourbon mashbill.
The marriage of bourbon mashbills gives this magnificent whiskey a nose of vanilla butter cake, a rich palate of caramel and cinnamon, and long finish of toasted oak, cinnamon, and hint of spearmint.
A true testament to Taylor’s pursuit of perfection and his dedication to push the boundaries of making whiskey, this bourbon would have made its namesake proud.
The new Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. 18 Year Old Marriage Bourbon Whiskey, according to those behind it, is a 100 proof, bottled-in-bond small batch bourbon that was put into barrels in 2002. Barrels chosen for this special batch release matured using one of three Buffalo Trace mashbill recipes; wheated bourbon, rye bourbon #1 and rye bourbon #2. The whiskey from these 18-year-old barrels was married together to make this expression.
It is said this is a one time bottling, thus making the release vey limited. This bottle displays a vintage label and is offered inside a distinct canister “reminiscent of Taylor’s whiskey package from over one hundred years ago.
These six bottle cases will be shipped in an impressive wooden box first used for the Cured Oak release in 2015. The boxes are modeled after the wooden crates used by Taylor to transport goods during the days before Prohibition.”
