EL GAUCHO SIGNATURE
MAKER’S MARK BARREL PRIVATE SELECT
Volume 7

The whisky inside every bottle of Maker’s Mark Select is created using a custom recipe of 10 oak finishing staves unique to each barrel. Each stave imparts a distinct flavor profile, which in combination, produces a whisky that is truly one of a kind, every time. Each barrel is then finished in Maker’s Marks’ custom limestone cellar to extract more flavor. The 10 finishing staves can be any combination of five flavor profiles chosen especially for this program. With 1,001 possible stave combinations, each expression of Private Select has a customized finish and taste profile that is unique, yet undeniably Maker’s Mark.

Stave Profile: 4-Maker’s Mark 46, 4-Roasted French Mendiant, 2-Toasted French Spice

EL GAUCHO COLONEL E.H. TAYLOR
SINGLE BARREL SELECT

Edmund Haynes Taylor was known for many things. His was mayor of Frankfort KY for 16 consecutive years, he was awarded the honorific designation of Kentucky Colonel, and was a prominient figure in the distilling industry. However its likely that he’s know best for pushing forward the Bottled in Bond act of 1897, the first Consumer Protection act in the US, designating legal definitions for what good American Whiskey can and cannot be. That’s why today E.H. Taylor whiskey is primarily labeled as Bottled-in-Bond whiskey, a former benchmark of quality, and an homage to the man who made it happen. This Single Barrel of E.H. Taylor Bourbon #017, expertly selected by the team at El Gaucho, was distilled January 29th, 2014, and bottle 9 ½ years later. It was aged primarily on the first floor of the legendary Warehouse H. (not available at El Gaucho Vancouver)
