  • Excerpt: One supposes it may depend on if one has a preference towards more wheated bourbons or a touch more rye spice. However, I believe this to be a win, regardless of grains of choice.

  • Excerpt: The true value in these experimental releases is actually tasting the resulting whiskey, and I can bet Edmund Taylor would have wanted it that way.

  • Excerpt: The taste has a good spiciness balanced by honey, vanilla, cocoa powder, and a hint of butterscotch leading into the finish, which is long with honey, oatmeal, and spearmint touches complementing the butterscotch.

  • Excerpt: It’s quite a strange whiskey — disjointed at times but definitely worth exploring at least once — if only to see what it’s like to drink like “the Gods.”

  • Intro:

    This is an interesting entry in the Limited Edition release line of E.H.Taylor bourbon. Replacing rye with amaranth in the mashbill one formula, this promises to be, at the very least, interesting. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet toffee, oatmeal, musty caramel. Rich vanilla, some faint fruits, plums, lavender, perfumey.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel - astringent and hot, however. Malty, perfume-y and floral. Slightly bitter. Not a lot great here.

  • Finish:

    Short, a bit hot. Cocoa, lavender, coriander, vanilla, faint orange peel.

  • Overall:

    This is bizarre and all over the place. I can’t say I’m a fan.

  • Score:

    4
