overall

Created by Scott Feuille, veteran and former Navy pilot, the name “Taylor Garrett” is a union of his two children’s first names and the logo a tribute to his time as a Naval Aviator, evoking images of fighter jets in formation with their jetstreams behind them. The company saying, “Accelerating Tradition,” alludes to what’s in the bottle - whiskey that has undergone a “rapid aging” process. Unfortunately, the end result is an odd mix of distillate and aged notes which doesn’t quite hit the mark.
