Whiskey Review: Colonel EH Taylor Straight Rye

Buffalo Trace Distillery - Straight Rye Whiskey - 100 proof

"By honoring tradition and embracing change, Buffalo Trace Distillery has earned its place of leadership among the legendary spirits makers of the world."

"This small batch, Bottled-in-Bond 100 proof straight rye whiskey pays tribute to the former Distillery owner with a unique rye whiskey reminiscent of days long past."

“Not as much spice up front as I was expecting“

This was our first chance to sip on some EHT Straight Rye, so a review was in order. Call us “taters”, but we both really enjoy EHT Small Batch and so we had big hopes for the straight rye variety. Buffalo Trace certainly did not disappoint. With a strong cinnamon spice on an extended finish, this rye whiskey is up there with the better ones we’ve sampled. Per the usual, we look at five different categories in our own terms: Bottle, Appearance, Smell, Value, and Taste.
