Buffalo Trace’s Ultra-Rare 18-Year Whiskey Blend Is A Unicorn Bourbon Must-Have

May 6, 2020

Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. is something of a legend in the whiskey world. In addition to being a successful banker, the descendant of two US presidents (Madison and Taylor), and a mayor for 16 years, E.H. Taylor is largely recognized as the father of the modern bourbon industry, introducing numerous game-changing innovations still in use today including copper fermentation tanks, column stills, steam heating systems, and a more efficient sour mash technique.

Buffalo Trace has repeatedly honored E.H. Taylor via special, single-run, small-batch productions bourbons, though the Kentucky distillery has now unveiled the 11th addition to the line with the E.H. Taylor, Jr. 18 Year Marriage: a blended bourbon comprised of two rye bourbon mashbills and Buffalo Trace’s wheated bourbon mashbill — the same one found in all six of the Franklin County firm’s (Pappy) Van Winkle Collection. Aged for 18 years, this limited edition Kentucky bourbon boasts a rich vanilla aroma with flavors of cinnamon, caramel, and toasted oak. Like the other ten members of the E.H. Taylor Collection, the 18 Year Marriage is accessibly priced at under $100, though it will almost certainly fetch more than ten times that on the resale market.
