KSBar and Grille’s Bourbon Night returns Friday night with Colonel E.H. Taylor in the spotlight.
Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. is considered one of the founding fathers of bourbon, and the distillery he purchased in 1870 is the distillery we now know as Buffalo Trace. (He called it the O.F.C. Distillery for Old Fire Copper.)
The bourbon that now bears Col. Taylor’s name is a small batch bourbon out of Buffalo Trace, and KSBar and Grille will be serving pours of it for only $5. Bourbon wasn’t that cheap when Edmund bought the damn place.
So if you have any interest in taking advantage of KSBar’s second Bourbon Night event with E.H. Taylor at an insanely low price, stop by KSBar any time after 4 p.m. on Friday, August 14, to enjoy Taylor’s notes of fruit, vanilla, spice, and nut. He’s dead, I think, but he’d be right there with you if he wasn’t. I heard he loved $5 bourbon nights in late 1800s Frankfort.
