After a long day at the office there really is nothing like taking the edge off with a bit of good old fashioned American bourbon. And if you’re in the market for the proverbial “good stuff” then Buffalo Trace, one of the most well-known bourbon distilleries in the US, has you covered. Their newest release, the Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Four Grain, is the latest in their limited edition series positioned to celebrate the famed distillery owner.

Each batch of Four Grain is crafted the way Taylor would have wanted, utilizing a special combination of corn, rye, wheat and malted barley. The result is sweet with notes of caramel and vanilla along with some spicier notes of clove and pepper. It’s a 12-year vintage, boasting a balance and spirit that mirrors the former distillery owner and distinguished businessman. The same man who followed his dream in post-Civil War America in purchasing a small distillery along the banks of the Kentucky River. Available now for $69. [Purchase]
