My best summer memories were made when I was in college, it was all about the freedom. Since graduating I have yet to find that feeling and becoming a mom makes it even harder. I would love for somebody to call me up and I am just able to go, nope not today player. It takes a little bit of planning, but it’s just my life now and I am rocking with it. *no I am not complaining*
I have found other alternatives that will get me closer to the freedom that I had during the summer while in college. That alternative is DRINKING!!! Lmao no no, I am not a drunk. Once I took a sip of Colonel E.H. Taylor small batch I instantly thought of the beach, brunch, and motherfucking sun dresses.
Note - Very floral, kinda like a cross between a honey suckle and a daisy. LMAO I am not sure why I picked daisy, lol I don't know flowers, just know that its honey and floral. Even with all of the floral notes that I get it still surprisingly taste like alcohol. I know it is to be expected because at 100 proof you cant hide it much.
Palate - The floral nuisances carry over, but you will pick up on caramel so its very sweet and smooth. The burn subsides a little so you are able to get some mouth feel which will help you distinguish more flavor.
Finish - There is a little bite to it that doesn't linger long. All I kept thinking is that this is 100 proof so its suppose to have a little kick to it, but it was more than that, just not sure what it is.
The Buffalo Trace Distillery created a mood when they made this just like Blanton’s, my expectations were high because of that and they didn't let me down. At around $42.00 for 750 ml at a 100 proof you are sure to get a summer vacation in the winter. Just kick back and sip slow.
Now if you are thinking there is no way this liquor could taste like summer just read the below notes straight that came straight from the Buffalo Trace Distillery’s website...
Tastes of caramel corn sweetness, mingled with butterscotch and licorice. The aftertaste is a soft mouth-feel that turns into subtle spices of pepper and tobacco.
