Tasting Notes for 1792 Small Batch Bourbon
Nose: Buttery warmth up front, followed by black pepper with soft smoky hints of charred oak and cinnamon.
Taste: Runny caramel, clove, cardamom and tons of rye spice and vanilla.
Finish: Rye spice, vanilla, and caramel present themselves again in the medium length finish.
All the way back in 1792, Kentucky officially became a state. Many moons later, 1792 Small Batch bourbon was named after that very same year. As it happens, it's a Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. Coincidence? We think not. This expression features mashbill with a generous helping of rye, resulting in a flavour profile packed with herbal spice alongside the classic caramelised sugar, buttered corn and toasted oak notes you find in top-notch bourbons. Great for sipping over a couple ice cubes on a sunny evening.
