Excerpt: Depending how you look at it Barton could receive accolades or criticism for this release. It’s great to see them releasing a new Bottled in Bond bourbon, but considering it’s so similar to their existing products, and at a much higher price by comparison, it’s easy to dismiss it.
Excerpt: If you’re a fan of 1792 bourbon, you’ll likely enjoy this. It’s well-balanced, nuanced and versatile, and holds its own when sipped neat, with a small rock or two, as well as with a couple of drops of bitters.
Excerpt: The one thing this expression really has going for it is balance, as the flavors that are there really work together nicely. I enjoyed this expression more than others from Barton, but there just wasn’t enough here to really impress me or entice me to keep more than one bottle on the shelf.

Rich banana candies, caramel, tiny bit of fudge, light oak structure
Medium mouth feel. No heat, nice syrupy character. Bananas foster, honey, praline, slivered almond, a hint of pepper. Nice clove and spice.
Medium finish, more banana and creme brulee. Reminds me of a banana split, where the banana is present but not dominating.
Lots of banana here but well blended. Banana split, with nuts on top.
