Col. E.H. Taylor Straight Rye Whiskey is the latest Rye from Buffalo Trace Distillery, which has already contributed to the “Rye Resurgence” with it’s pair of Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskeys. These are fine examples of American Rye, but the E.H. Taylor expression is something else again.

There’s a lot happening here, with several styles of spice and sweetness complimenting each other. Tobacco and black raspberries, cardamom and caramel, dill and toffee are the most distinguished pairings, and repeated nosings find them engaged in a Bop-like interplay. The spice takes
