A nicely-balanced basic bay rum. For once, the mighty clove is well-tamed; the price you pay for this here is low power and so-so longevity, maybe 3 hours or so with a generous application. For those using this just as an aftershave splash, this may not be a disadvantage. Furthermore, it is, at least in the UK, quite inexpensive and comes in a large bottle (150ml and 250ml). Probably the best of the British bay rums (cough).
To me, there's nothing wrong with Taylor's bay rum other than the plastic bottle. It's softer than Trumpers or D.R. Harris and wears very well.
The only thing I don't like about it ... plastic bottle.
Taylor's Lavender Water (can't find it anymore) is in a cheap plastic bottle, but is (or was) pure ambrosia. Not perfumy, just the essence of Lavender. Where'd it go?
Quite a poor, cheap bay rum. The bay note itself is okay but it is packaged up in a rather unsubtle, drugstore aftershave accord and lots of castor oil.
Get the Trumpers Bay Rum, its beautiful stuff.
