Jason Similar body to the small batch Рbut with less sweetness and bit more harshness.  it is more for those that like the spicier leather and hints of caramel and vanilla.
Tripp This is much spicier and less sweet than the small batch. This is very rich and complex and a very nice drink. I prefer the sweeter version of the small batch. I would certainly buy this again.

Colonel E. H. Taylor – Small Batch

‘Bottled in bond’; 50% (100 proof)

This is the classic bourbon whiskey bottle, with the tapered neck and tall classy body. These bottles are sometimes referred to as “lady legs” because of the taper and style. The label is very classy and this bottle just looks good in your liqueur cabinet. You might have to buy it just to look that cool. Just saying….

Jason Any house will enjoy this – a smooth 100 proof beverage; slightly sweet but with a weight to the liquid that holds many flavors while remaining smooth.
Since writing this review I have designated this whiskey as my top shelf go to house bourbon. I have yet to find anyone who has not enjoyed a glass. Sweet and spicy lovers alike. Come to my house and I will offer you a glass of this first. Colonel E. H. Taylor РSmall Batch РThe Bourbon Guide double thumbs up!"
