Buffalo Trace’s E.H. Taylor, Jr. Four Grain Bourbon Whiskey is getting a second release this spring. Considered a “last call” for this bourbon since there are no plans for another release after this, this bourbon was made from a distinct bourbon recipe using corn, rye, wheat and malted barley. Distilled in 2005, E.H. Taylor, Jr. Four Grain Bourbon Whiskey had a distinct flavor profile with the four grains chosen due to their availability to E. H. Taylor when he would have began at Buffalo Trace in the late 1800s. In a press release, the company described the four grains as “having a nose reminiscent of a chocolate roast malt, a flash of spice attached to barely perceptible ulmo honey, followed by a taste complemented by deeper Manuka honey and licorice notes.” The finish is described as slow, lightly oiled, gently spiced chocolate fade, which goes on and on.
“We were so thrilled when Jim Murray named the first batch of Four Grain the best whiskey in the world. With this second batch, hopefully more people will get to taste this amazing whiskey,” said Kris Comstock, senior marketing director.
