Harnessing a whole lot of either voodo, or science, based on your preferred view on the world of bourbon, Colonel EH Taylor Seasoned Wood comes to bourbon drinkers as the next chapter of the Colonel E.H. Taylor limited edition catalogue. Produced from staves that undergo a unique seasoning process involving enzymatic baths and specific kiln drying, this bottling is sure to be interesting.
Wood is apparent on the nose immediately. Honey, light vanilla bean, faint tannins, praline and a hint of clove.
Dry and oaky on the palate. Honey, some vanilla, more wood. Bitter spice notes. Almost drinks more like a rye at times. Pepper and dry oak notes. Hint of tobacco.
Dry and tannic finish. Some butterscotch, cinnamon, pepper. Mostly dry oak.
I love the experimentation here, but it's not really wowing me here.
