Spirits of The Past
The holidays are meant to be spent with old friends. Not only is Colonel E.H. Taylor one of my favorite bourbons but with out the historical Col. Taylor their might not have been a Bottled-In-Bond Act and then I'd need a whole new online persona. Everything in the E.H. Taylor line is aged in Warehouse C, one of the very first climate controlled warehouse built by Colonel Taylor himself in the before times of 1881. Col. Taylor was also instrumental in passing the Bottled In Bond Act of 1897 so we’ve got another Bonded (100 Proof and at least 4 years old) whiskey. And then finally it’s a Single Barrel, everything in the bottle comes from one barrel that was so delectable on it’s own it’d didn’t need to be batched for quality. All of this history and technical mumbo jumbo combing to create a Bourbon whiskey that is full of dried, stone fruits, the spice rack in your grandma’s kitchen, butterscotch, and a whiff of tobacco. So for this #whiskeywednesday find a bottle and raise a glass of the Taylor Single Barrel Bottled In Bond Bourbon.
Find the light you damn ham.

Scouting out some rainy day rye. The discontinued Smooth Ambler Old Scout Rye was a delight back in the day. Seven Year old rye from LDI/MGP it is a massive spice bomb with loads of green apple, caramel, white pepper, and all the extra deliciousness being discontinued brings.
I'm just really feeling this jacket. And some Sherry.
Eleven years in LA and nearly four years with this parakeet. She is by far still my favorite monkey.
