1792 Small Batch

1792 Small Batch

I’d been meaning to try one of Barton’s products for a while and when I saw it on sale for $21 I decided why not. The bottle is awkward shaped to fit on a shelf, but looks fancy. I know the brand has been through a few changes of late so I can’t speak to any change in quality, but for what I paid I was happy.

Paid: $21 for 750ml

Distilled / Owned By: Barton / Sazerac

Region: Kentucky

46.85% ABV

Aged For: Minimum 4 years

Mashbill: 75% corn, 15% rye, 10% malted barley

Cask Type: New charred oak, Char # 3

Chill Filtered: Yes

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn

Color: Medium Orange

Nose: Sweet caramel, hint of banana and vanilla. Yeasty bread and clove.

Taste: Coconut and banana, very fruity for a bourbon. Vanilla and light oak. Milk chocolate.

Finish: Very subtly warm, shorter side of medium in length. Cinnamon and clove predominate the aftertaste.

Overall: I really enjoyed this for the price. It’s a very fruity and lite bourbon for everyday drinking that finishes slightly spicy. I’d certainly recommend it to newcomers to bourbon.

Score: 80 out of 100
