Taylor is widely considered one of the founding fathers of the bourbon industry, fighting for the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897, nearly three decades after he purchased the now Buffalo Trace Distillery. During his time, Taylor implemented several innovative methods still used today by Buffalo Trace, such as climate controlled aging warehouses. In addition to his bourbon interests, Taylor had political ties. He was the great-nephew of President Zachary Taylor and elected the mayor of Frankfort, state representative to the Kentucky General Assembly and a member of the State Senate.

'Colonel Taylor was a pioneer with the highest standards for whiskey. We hope this bourbon honors his legacy,' said Kris Comstock, brand manager. 'This Single Barrel Bourbon was aged nearly twelve years in Warehouse C, which was built by Taylor and proven to be an excellent aging warehouse. We tasted through numerous samples and choose 36 individual barrels. The nose reminds me of lightly toasted oak, with dried figs and butterscotch. Sweetness on the tongue remains balanced with tobacco and dark spices that finish just long enough to prepare the palate for another sip.'

"A medium dark amber color is accompanied by a spicy, earthy nose exhibiting aromas of honey, wood spice and a touch of smoke. There is no harshness to this superb bourbon. It displays a velvety, full throttle outhfeel with noticeable, but not distracting alcohol. Caramelized, smoky, honeyed flavors coat the palate and provide a beautiful, complex sipping beverage." 95 points. - Robert Parker
