Each bottle of 1792 Small Batch Bourbon whisky is handcrafted in small batches, bottled at 93.7 proof and aged 8 years in new charred oak barrels. The result is a distinctively smooth pour, equally worthy of rare occasions and everyday enjoyment. This refined bourbon elevates Kentucky distilling to exceptional new heights.
Kentucky- 1792 is the year that Kentucky became a state, and the bottling of this special Bourbon commemorates that date. Made from 1792’s signature “”high rye”” recipe and the marriage of select barrels. Classic balance of spice and oak leads to a long dry finish.
1792 Small Batch Bourbon Tasting Notes
Honey gold colour. The initially dry, leathery, nutty/oaky bouquet gives way to sweeter, softer scents of vanilla wafer, popcorn, oak shavings and peppermint chocolate. A cut above your mainstream Bourbon profile: Sleek and effortless with the sugars reigned in. Nice concentration too. At mid palate there’s a noticeable injection of oily rye and cinnamon, being medium dry, crisp, lip smacking rather than caramel or vanilla-heavy. The finish is low-key but deliciously textural, oily, with minty rye, pepper and cocoa. Extra oomph through the final stages would make for an instant classic. As it is, this whiskey displays a degree of elegance and integration that, in its own right, sets it apart in the sub $100 category. A worthwhile addition to every Bourbon lovers collection. 46.85% Alc./Vol.
