It follows the regulations of the Bottled in Bond Act of 1897, which Taylor was instrumental in passing. The Bottled in Bond label requires that a bourbon be crafted from barrels all distilled by a single distillery, in a single season, stored in a bonded warehouse for four years before bottling, and bottled at 100 proof. This bourbon is a true sipping bourbon that honors the uncompromising legacy of E.H. Taylor, Jr. The aroma delivers hints of mint and sweet spices balanced with smoky oak. A smooth flavor of caramel corn sweetness is mingled with tones of butterscotch and licorice. The aftertaste is a soft mouth feel that turns into subtle spices of pepper and tobacco.
