Proof66 Notes

Old taylor bourbon is named for EH Taylor (distant descendant of Zachary Taylor), who bought a distillery and attempted to modernize the equipment in the hopes of making the best bourbon. (He eventually sold the brand to George Stagg.) It is aged for 6 years in charred oak

The Old Taylor label along with the inventory that went with it was purchased by Buffalo Trace from Beam Global in 2009, so we list Buffalo Trace as the producer, though much of the inventory came from Jim Beam (from Kentucky News).

The Old Taylor Bourbon under Buffalo Trace Distillery aka Old Fashioned Copper Distillery has turned Old Taylor into terrible rotgut and is not 6 years old . There is a 6 on neck of label but no year statement.I was shocked. That is consumer fraud by Sazerac to fool the consumer. It taste like a very cheap low quality blended whiskey, not like bourbon. Jim Beam Brands had made a decent Old Taylor Bourbon before selling the brand to Buffalo Trace Distillery.The 12 number bar-code was 088004005238

This is 6yr old Jim Beam. They changed ownership to Buffalo Trace in 2009, & provided a 6yr supply. So in 2015 this will change to Buffalo Trace liquid. If you like Jim Beam you will like this, a step in between Beam White & Beam Black. Fairly full flavor for an 80 proof.
