The Lebron James of Straight Rye Whiskey.

In 1830, a baby called Edmund Haynes Taylor Jr. was born and he became the father of modern Whiskey (when he grew up, naturally). Raised by the twelfth US President... We thought that was worth mentioning. He made top-notch Whiskeys and made sure the Bottled-in-Bond law was passed. So it's no wonder Buffalo Trace Distillery decided to name their fantastic limited expression after the dude.

Colonel E.H. Taylor Straight Rye Whiskey is made from a mash of rye and malted barley, bottled in bond (a product of a single distiller) at 100 proof. Not only is this rare treasure a homage to booze history, it's really actually good! Dark spices, caramel undertones, cinnamon and vanilla hiding in the back... Look, you don't have to listen to us; Jim Murray himself gave this bottle an almost perfect score of 97 points and said it shouldn't be left on a shelf.
