    New Colonel E.H. Taylor

    The following caught my eye in Shanken News Daily today.

    Sazerac Co. is set to launch Colonel E. H. Taylor Jr. Barrel Proof Bourbon, an uncut, unfiltered rye-recipe Bourbon thatís at 134.5-proof and is aged seven years. Rolling out in June, itís the fourth product in the E. H. Taylor Jr. Bourbon Collection, joining Old Fashioned Sour Mash Bourbon, Single Barrel Bourbon and Warehouse C. Tornado Surviving Bourbon. Like the previous three releases, Barrel Proof Bourbon will have limited availability and will be packaged in a vintage label and canister. Suggested retail price is $69.99 a 750-ml.
    Cheers,
    Tom

    Nice...I wonder if they will ever have a regular release of this, or if will continue to be these limited edition releases.

    I guess that would be this one. I'm kind of disappointed it's only going to be 7 years old. I suppose it's essentially barrel proof Buffalo Trace, which is something I'd like to try, but not for nearly 4 times the price of regular Buffalo Trace.

    Not saying that a barrel proof rye won't happen, but the label that's already approved is for a BIB rye.

    I think you've come to the right conclusion. Except with Stagg you don't get the fancy tube.

    I agree with Wade... having tried it; I'll be buying it.
