Colonel E. H. Taylor Straight Rye Whiskey Bottled in Bond
It's hard to deny the rye spice this whiskey features, as it hits hard and fast, yet quickly becomes tempered as the palate opens up. The focus then moves to vanilla, pear, nutmeg, and a dash of pine. This transition makes for an interesting sip, as too often rye whiskeys are one-dimensional. This whiskey also has an oily viscosity which coats the tongue in cinnamon and baking spice flavors. As an added bonus, the mouthfeel greatly enhances the whiskey and takes an already admirable palate to even greater heights.
