BOTTLE, BAR OR BUST: There are very few bourbons out now that I want to buy a bottle of without trying at a bar. If you have never tried this and are not sure, I would urge you to give it a try at a bar. If you like Buffalo Trace mash bill #1 go ahead and get a bottle if you don’t already have one.
OVERALL: Very few bourbons epitomize Bourbon Heritage Month like Colonel E. H. Taylor Bottled in Bond. If you are interested in learning more about the Bottled in Bond Act, click here. I think the EHT Small Batch is the best bourbon for the money on the market. To me, you just can’t beat this one for the price. A great sipping bourbon that is also great on the rocks as well. Sometimes it is a little hard to find, and here in Virginia, it is released by a limited product lottery. If you are willing to search the internet, however, it can usually be found on line for its suggested price. Yes, I am a big fan of Buffalo Trace products, and I like everything they produce. The EHT Small Batch is a great bourbon to have around.
Tastes of caramel corn sweetness, mingled with butterscotch and licorice. The aftertaste is a soft mouth-feel that turns into subtle spices of pepper and tobacco.
