I enjoy a little bourbon, good stuff no rubbish. Owning a home in Kentucky, where most of the good stuff is made, I grew accustomed to being able to buy rare, hard to find, single barrel and small batch bourbons. I can buy some of them in the DC area, for twice the price. Some of them I can't find in DC for any price. So when I go to Kentucky, I try to stock up. I was in Kentucky for Valentines / Presidents day weekend and I went shopping / stocking. I visited 5 distilleries and Liquor Barn. The yield was 9 bottles of 8 different bourbons, two different bourbon creams, and four bottles of America's best Vodka (Wheatly.)
I was last in Kentucky 16 months ago. I stocked up the last time I was there. I was down to my last bottle.This stock up will last for a while.
The 1792 is from Barton in Bardstown. The name is a tribute to the year that Kentucky became a state. It is a blend of select very old barrels. Very smooth, It has a noticeable spice, Notes of flowers, vanilla, and a little wood in the after taste. Very nice. Very drinkable. There will be a few more reviews from this haul.
