Well done, Mike.

Is it known when the Old Tayler brand itself first appeared, and from which distillery?

Old taylor was the brand created in the 1880's after Taylor formed E H Taylor, Jr. and Sons.

I thought it was very good. I book marked it so I can read future blogs.

Last Monday was the final class in the Filson Bourbon Academy and I posted the last blog about the class on the website. It was a good experience and I have already been asked to do it again in the spring. I have also been asked to do it in November in Lexington at the Hyatt and in Bardstown after the beginning of the year.
