Colonel E.H Taylor Seasoned Wood

Hailing from Buffalo Trace, Colonel E.H. Taylor was created by the Sazerac company in 2009 after they purchased the Old Taylor brand from Jim Beam.

The brand applies methods and mashbills comparable to those introduced by Colonel E. H. Taylor. Edmund Haynes Taylor is generally considered to be the father of modern bourbon, recognising the the importance of strong brands and building numerous important distilleries, including Old Fashioned Copper (OFC, better known today as Buffalo Trace).

Taylor's "Colonel" title is not a military prefix, but actually refers to the honourary title, Kentucky Colonel. He shares this with many famous sons of Kentucky, but perhaps none more so than a certain Fried Chicken vendor...

The Seasoned Wood release has a high-wheat mashbill, bottled in bond at the legal standard 100 US proof in 2016.

The casks that provide the name for this whiskey underwent a variety of seasoning processes at Independent Stave Company, who consulted on this project.  One set of staves were immersed in an enzyme-rich bath with water heated to 100 degrees, before they were placed into kilns and dried until they reached the appropriate humidity level for crafting into barrels.  Other staves were seasoned outdoors for six months, and a further selection were left outdoors for 12 months before they were made into barrels and filled with small batch wheat recipe Bourbon.
