Colonel E.H. Taylor Rye Whiskey Review

EHT-straightrye

Released back in 2012, Colonel E.H. Taylor Rye Whiskey is the only non-bourbon in the E.H. Taylor lineup.  Also of note, this straight rye whiskey does not share DNA with Buffalo Trace’s Sazerac Rye.  This is a completely different rye mash bill.  This is made entirely of rye and barley.  That’s right, there’s no corn here.  What it does share with its brethren whiskies is the bottled-in-bond label.  In a nutshell, that means it’s 100 proof, at least four years old, and distilled by one distillery in one season.  Taylor, the man, was the proponent of the Bottled-In-Bond Act of 1897.
