Buffalo Trace Distillery, has announced the launch of the tenth bottling in its Colonel E. H. Taylor, Jr. collection.

Colonel E. H. Taylor Amaranth Bourbon Whiskey (50% ABV) was aged for at least 10 years and produced using Amaranth as its main grain, along with corn and malted barley.

Bottled-in-bond and available as a one time release, this latest bottling in the series which launched in 2011, continues to pay homage to former Distillery owner Colonel E. H. Taylor, Jr.

Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. is widely considered one of the founding fathers of the bourbon industry, fighting for the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897, nearly three decades after he purchased the distillery that is known today as the Buffalo Trace Distillery.

The Amaranth grain, was originally cultivated by the Aztecs and is called “The Grain of the Gods.” It is similar to wheat, but offers a complex taste with subtle flavours ranging from a nose of butterscotch and spearmint, to a finish of pecans and dark berries.

Colonel E. H. Taylor Amaranth Bourbon Whiskey, will be available later this month from specialist retailers in the US, for a RRP of $69.99 - 750ml.
