    The Old Taylor Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky was built by Colonel Edmind Haynes Taylor Jr - and if you're a Bourbon fan you'll recognise E. H. Taylor as a hard-to-find Buffalo Trace release. The distillery closed in 1972 and parts were sold off for scrap, but eventually the remnants were purchased by friends Will Arvin and Wes Murry in 2014, and distilling recommenced in 2016 in a revitalised operation that is a must-see if you're in the area.

    With a mashbill of 63% rye, 17% yellow corn and 20% malted barley and an age of around 4 to 5 years in virgin oak, this is one of the fruitiest yet well balanced ryes I have had in a long time. There's an overriding note of orange oil and zest, with soft spices completing perfectly. It's a mouthwatering rye - it'll be perfect in an Old Fashioned but I found this a joy to sip neat.

    It's not currently available in the UK - I sourced this during a trip to the US, but I will be doing what I can to get my hands on more!
