While generally not my favorite EH Taylor, coming in 129 proof, this barrel strength release is hot, heavy, spicy, and thick which on a Tuesday ain't half bad - A quick comment on the nose: taking it in, you get a muddled, but amazing, combination. It's equal parts lumbar yard, sweets shop, and department store fragrance section (not the noxious, overpowering kind, thank God, but a mix of woods and perfumey aromatics). And weirdly, chicken noodle soup with it's musty semi-sweet, semi-stale character - Tasting notes: Caramel is the main front note, but it's quickly drowned by spice and a hot, hot heat. This is one that comes off firing on all cylinders - you'll want to be sure to let your palate acclimate - and that fire runs right down into your chest. Once you reset and are a little better adjusted, you go from caramel to more spice-laden wood. Cinnamon is strong. You have both fresh and lively oak notes and some soggy wet notes. I've recently seen people describing Buffalo Trace Bourbons as having a wet cardboard character. I wouldn't go that far, but I can see where they're coming from with it here. Some perfumey and floral notes pop up for sure. There's something fresh about it. A little mentholic, but even more than that, just vegetal and clean. And then more firey heat. The heat with the wooded astringency yield a bitter and sour tone into the finish, which settles into a more mellow wood, caramel, and more of that clean natural flavors, all on a bed of hot coals - I always want to like this one more than I do (and I know others that love it). Each EHT BP release is a little different, but for me, this one doesn't top the charts @buffalotracedistillery #theamateuralcoholist #whiskey #whisky #bourbon #ehtaylor #colonel #thecolonel #gentleman #soldier #portrait #buffalotrace #buffalotracedistillery #lookup #oldfashionedcopper #oldfashioned #hotcoals #review #whiskeynotes #caskstrength #tuesdays #instawhiskey #whiskeygram #bourbongram #bourbonporn #instadram
