Whisky Reviews for Colonel E.H. Taylor Four Grain

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.24 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Wonderfully balanced bourbon, actually never had such a wide spectrum of flavors, alcohol of 50% extremely mild, almost a tick too much. Very good!
    • Nose
      Nice spectrum of aromas, light sourdough notes, but then also directly brown sugar, floral notes, caramel and coconut, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, peanuts and hazelnuts lightly salted
    • Taste
      Nice spice mixture thrown in honey in front, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, clove, lovage, camphor, some cardamom, anise, salted peanut, some sourdough and rye bread smeared with forest honey, tree cake, fresh cocoa beans
    • Finish
      Pine nuts, clove, nutmeg, anise, roasted nuts, medium length

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    While it is far from the "best", it is pretty decent. The secondary price in the US jumped from $200 to $300 overnight after the anointment by a blowhorn that this is the best whiskey of the year. Price is much higher in European auctions. Quality-wise, it should be less than $100 -- most Four Roses single barrel store picks beat this easily, and they could be had for $60-85.

  3. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Flowers, caramel, spices, cake, iris, cream, coconut, rye bread notes on nose.

    Spices, cream, mouth-puckering, cake, rye bread, caramel, green apples, flowers and oak cask notes on palate.

    Spices, mouth-puckering, oak cask, caramel, vanilla notes on long finish.
