Named for the year that Kentucky became a state of the USA, this small batch bourbon is produced by the Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky using a higher rye component in the mashbill. The whiskey's name once included the wording "Ridgemont Reserve" but the name has been dropped since the packaging update. Bottled at 46.85%.
Nose: Creamy aromas of creme brulee, fruit cake, peppercorns, floral honey and buttercream.
Palate: Supple and creamy praline, fruit and maple fudge. Warming and complex.
Finish: Robust and sweet with peppery spices and a mineral element.
