1792 Bottled In Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Barton 1792 Distillery
750 ML (Standard)
This Whiskey presents with a creamy mouthfeel and plenty of those same rich caramel and vanilla notes.Although initially sweet, the rye spice quickly kicks in mid-palate and it is surprisingly strong.This is further accentuated by some seasoned oak, which provides a nice balance to the sweeter notes.Once again, there is not alot of depth and complexity here, but the flavors that are present balance nicely.
A very light amount of ethanol blends nicely with rich caramel, heavy vanilla, and plenty of rye spice, all of which is underscored by a soft oak note.
The finish is medium long and characterized by the same carame or vanill or spice profile that is present throughout the sip.The spice notes definitely pick up along with the lingering rye spice and makes for a sharper, spicier finish.
