Colonel EH Taylor Bourbon Bottling Note

This small batch bourbon is named after Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, an incredibly important figure in bourbon's history from the 1800s who owned a whole host of distilleries and innovated production methods which are still used today. It's only right that the Colonel EH Taylor Small Batch lives up to his name by being absolutely amazing.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Caramel apples, fresh corn and cloves. Butterscotch sneaks in after a while.

Palate: More corn sweetness, mixed with slight spiciness of rye and cinnamon.

Finish: Medium and very rich with creamy vanilla.

Overall: A really great small batch bourbon.

Colonel EH Taylor Small Batch Reviews

Nice warm Kentucky Hug on the way down. Price is definitely not ideal, but a must have on the shelf at home.

Really nice nose and body
Nose: baking spices, vanilla, caramel
Palate: baked fruits, vanilla, baking spice lingers

11th November 2020

Really Nice

Really nice as expected, complex, has the burn and rye spice to it
Nose: baking apples, baking spices, corn, caramel, pear, bourbon vibes
Palate: apple pie, orchid fruits, rye spice, vanilla, nice burn good balance
Yes really nice but will knock a star off for price I’m not totally convinced, it does taste premium definitely, but £100 premium not so sure

Genuinely disappointing

This was one of the most disappointing whiskies I've had. It's certainly not bad, it's nice and smooth and has a decent flavour profile, but for a £100 whiskey... not a chance.

Noah's Mill, which is sold out here but available elsewhere, and Rowan's Creek in my view are far better for less.

Reading through reviews, there's clearly been an enormous surge in the price, as with most whiskey, but in my view this has definitely left value far behind.

Pretty good.

Tuath glass showing deep copper to a burnished tinge. The nose shows savory notes of roasted corn and hints of umami.

The palate is vanilla forward throughout. Surprisingly a lot of vanilla on the palate

Excellent bourbon!

Was never a Bourbon drinking until I came up this lovely elixir while making a pit stop to the Buffalo Trace Distillery enroute to Florida last November. The distillery staff couldn't keep the good Colonel on the shelf. Bought a bottle there and then when back in Canada have bought 2 bottles since. Now sadly our British Columbia owned Government stores are all sold out. The Colonel was an amazing innovator and now he's an Amazing bourbon!

Great got it as gift wish I could find it just had the last swig

10th May 2020

A Nice Find

I've tried a number of related whiskeys and when I saw this at Costco for $31.99 (and Eagle Rare at same price) I decided to give it a whirl. Comparing the two, EH has a little less cinnamon an heat, and a little more butter, IMHO. Been trying a number of others (1792, Larceny, etc.) and it will be nice to include this one in the rotation. Not sure it's above Weller 12 (which I found a bottle of recently) but it's in the ballpark. BTW, Costco also had 1.75 liter of Weller Special Reserve for $35.00 (maybe even a little less), so don't forget to look there if you have one nearby.

My new go to bourbon!

Picked up 4 bottles for $33.00 each. I felt like I just won the lottery!

Great small batch bourbon. Has depth, even over ice.

30th July 2019

Butter smooth with slight heat

Worth a try at the right price

Depends what you pay.
45-60$ is fair. The nose is B+, The mouthfeel is A- for something that is in a sub 100$ range which is special. The finish is long but dry. Depends what you are looking for. Those that say it is just a tad below the single barrel are way off in my opinion. I avoided this bourbon when it first came out because the rest of the E. H Taylors were so special. As bourbon gets more and more nuts I find myself buying a bottle here and there. Ultimately, if you haven't had it and can get a bottle for under 55$ I would try it. I've had a lot of trash for well above that price.

19th October 2018

Depends on what you're willing to pay.

Bought a bottle in Corning N.Y. for $48.00 and change + tax. Wonderful bourbon but at $101.00? There are many very good options for less... like the same bourbon for $48.00 + tax. Been drinking bourbon for about
40 years and it seems to be going the way of wine. Many "experts" parroting what the "experts" say. If you can get a bottle for what I paid... go for it. you will not be disappointed.

10th August 2018

Worth every penny

Remarkably smooth with caramel yet at 100 proof. Really quite good.

30th May 2018

Four stars with an asterisk....

I must agree with a previous review in that the price in the States is more realistic. My last bottle of this fine session Bourbon was $39 US. At that price, this is a magnificent whiskey. Lovely nose with leather and clover flowers. On the tongue, a nice coating containing cocoa and orange peel, molasses and oak. The finish is just long enough with just enough heat to remind you this dram didn't come from a plastic bottle. Overall, I would definitely buy again and plan on doing so.... just not for 100 bones!

27th May 2018

£95! Wow, steep!

Ninety five pounds sterling! I could buy 3 bottles of Whiskey for the same price just as good as this. As an example, Eagle Rare 10, Four Roses barrel strength and Knob Creek! You have been warned!

2nd March 2018

Top Notch but Pricey

My second go to, well third, Blanton's then Teeling and EH Taylor. However, for this price there are other options out there. In the states we have the advantage of this bottle being around $40-50 which makes it a spot on competitor to the others out there as it is a solid, high quality bourbon with just enough bite but doesn't make you forget about that vanilla back of tongue and a creamy non-watered down feel. I prefer it neat like most bourbons but I do find a splash of water opens this one a bit and you'll end up with more of the fresh fruit smells and flavors.

However, at this cost it would be up to you, I can state it is a 4.5/5 star bourbon.

7th February 2018

No.1 out of the 24

The last of the advent calendar...24th, but best of the lot! Luxurious, smooth, sweet - all good words. No long after 🔥, but that's ok with me. Try Makers 46 if that's what you like. Wonderful.

26th January 2018

Best for the money!

Get all of E.H. Taylor bourbons you can find. They are hard to come by and are just stunning.

24th December 2017

Very Nice!!

Buffalo Trace products seem to reign. I have had the barrel, single and small batch all excellent. The Small Batch is a very small step behind the SB. It may be just a tad bit lighter. I have an open bottle that I need to revisit. Very pleasurable bourbon from beginning to end.

23rd November 2017

Very nice...a little pricey but worth it

I picked up a bottle in Decatur,Ga just outside of Atlanta. Paid 80 bucks. The first sip is light to the palate with a hint of spice at the end. Great cold weather bourbon. Enjoy this with no more than 2 ice cubes or a splash of purified water.

11th November 2017

Better then good but not great

For the $41 I paid its worth it. Not chewy nor thin it's medium bodied and smooth for the above 80 proof that it is. Complex enough for me and very drinkable strait. Buffalo Trace bourbon is the best bourbon for the money for me hands down and this doesn't come close to changing that but for me this is a change up bourbon that I will continue to purchase .

1st October 2017

OK, I guess, but not really for me

Different strokes, I guess. I'm an Islay guy. I love my Laphroaigs and Ardbegs as peaty and medicinal as possible. Picked up a bottle of this so I could give bourbon a try. It's cheap where I am, probably $40. It's ... OK. I'll keep it on hand, but it's too mild for a peat freak like me. I offer that up not as a criticism of this bourbon, just as a caution for other Islay people who like more aggressive flavors.

29th July 2017


deep dried dark fruit nose.....if marinated in rum...taste is boosted by the 100 proof (let it sit a bit)...loads of notes...the usual suspects of charred vanilla and autumn spices....finish is a drop cinnamon ember burn/glow

22nd July 2017

Overall for me I give it 4 stars

I love this bourbon since I discovered it 1 year ago. It has a wonderful flavor and have gotten to the point where I don't add water til after the 3rd sip. It has all the taste notes as mentioned above from the author of this page. It's a great time to be alive with so many nice bourbons, but for me especially this one.

7th June 2017

Beautiful all-purpose bourbon.

A great 'traditional' tasting bourbon great neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail. Given the taste profile this is truly a top notch versatile bourbon. And at my local liquor store in the USA, it's available for 40 bucks. It comes in an attractive cardboard tube (like many scotches) and makes a great gift. Too bad we Americans have to overpay for many scotch whiskies. I always have a bottle of this and Woodford Reserve in the bar because of how versatile they are.

18th June 2016

My favorite bourbon

If you see anything Taylor on the shelf, buy it. Period. It's the literal best bourbon for this price range, that isn't up for debate.

7th March 2016

A Tasty kick in the mouth

I found bottles of this for $35.00 so I bought one to sample on a Sunday afternoon. I went back the next day and bought a case. Its great on the rocks and is great in a syrup free old fashion.

15th October 2015


I've just been to Atlanta and managed to pick this up for $61 which is clearly a bargain. lovely stuff.

2nd July 2015

The South is gonna do it again!!

EXCELLENT bourbon,,i found a few bottles here in Corpus Christi,TX and I would gladly pay 100 plus dollars for this "deeyoelishus" nectar from the great distillers of Kentucky!!

10th June 2015


I recently got my hands on a bottle and shared it with a few friends. They are mainly Scotch drinkers, but we ALL agreed that this was an outstanding drink! It's all here: vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, baked apples, butter, kettle corn, hints of sweet tobacco and chocolate. Do yourself a favor and grab a's smooooooooth.

17th April 2015


Pricey but excellent, a joy to drink

25th January 2015

Pappy in disguise

I have an open bottle of Pappy 10, I've had Pappy 15, and I've got a 23 that I'm finding hard to bring myself to open. This stuff is just as good as any of that. I may be wrong with what mash bills are what, but when I taste this, with an ice cube or just a little cold water, my experience is pretty much to par with any of the ultra premium stuff. This tastes like its aged for anywhere between 7-9 years, and its sweet, with flavors of oak, butterscotch, and fruit. PERFECT

19th December 2014


Not a big bourbon fan.
I would probably do anything to get another bottle of this one!
One of my top five.

14th December 2014

the mymic

The Colonel EH Taylor series are all exceptional whiskies, it just gauls me that what's $45 is £100 in the UK. I hope the price comes down soon.

15th November 2014

A Fine Bourbon

I have tried many of the best bourbon and rye whiskeys produced in the great state of Kentucky. EH Taylor SB is the quintessential bourbon that I recommend to all non-bourbon whisky drinkers and novice bourbon drinkers looking to expand their understanding beyond the mass production brands. This is my favorite bourbon.

representing the most perfect or typical example of a quality or class.

31st October 2014

Perfection in a bottle

Amazing. Complex but not overwhelming, smooth, very smooth! Bufflao Trace continues to amaze me! Cheers!

17th September 2014

A classic

If you're in the UK, and can't get this for US prices, I'd have to say that this is a great example of what Buffalo Trace can do. Great oak notes from the cask. Sweet and full of flavor. I have to say this is the bottle that made me fall in love with bourbon. For all the hype of the Van Winkle line, there is something special in this bottle as well. If you can get your hands on the Barrel Proof, it's also a gem. Either way, you get what you pay for here. At 50% ABV, it's a true expression of what Kentucky offers to the world!
