Well, I really enjoy everything I’ve had by 1792 so far, and was super excited when I saw these two boys (1792 Single Barrel and Full Proof) sitting on the shelf. So, of course I had to buy both to review and to drink. Hold onto your butts…
Other 1792 things located here.
Distillery: Barton 1792 Distillery
Location: Bardstown, KY
Mash Bill: Standard 1792 mash hill, which is not stated other than being a “high rye” recipe.
ABV: 49.3% (98.6 proof)
Color: Honey Golden Blonde
Nose: Vanilla, white sugar, cherry, grass, clove, with a hint of licorice.
Taste: Sweet, tastes like refined sugar, cinnamon and clove, cherry syrup, kind of reminds me of Christmas. Maybe, this’ll be my Christmas Bourbon or the Bourbon you should take to Christmas that everyone can drink and enjoy! You’re welcome, readers!
Finish: Light warm finish, with a bit of heat at the end, nom noms. Plus, my throat is all warm and happy now.
Overall: So, how does this compare to the original. I don’t know, let me go pour myself a bit of the original…well our’s is crazy old and slightly oxidized. So, the single barrel wins. For $30 it’s a done deal. Buy it if you see it, and bring it to your family Christmas.
