Colonel E.H. Taylor Single Barrel

If you actually care about the history, link.  This whiskey is bottled in bond, which means that it has met certain government standards about how it was made and aged and it is bottled at 100 proof.  Most people don't know that there are also very specific standards in the actual work force.  Below is an image of your typical "bottled in bond" plant worker.

Much more effective than a hair net.  Fittingly, this is a rough tasting bourbon.  Very oaky and smokey.  And the high proof kind of kills your taste buds.  I had thoughts on the flavor at the beginning of the glass (not too shabby), but now it's all alcohol.  There is not really much point in recommending it or not recommending it because it's one of those limited runs that you either lucked into by now or it's too late.
