1792 Full Proof is typically a small batch, proofed release from Barton in Kentucky. Bottled at 125pf, it is hard to tell what the original barrel proof was for these releases, but all the same, 62.5% ABV isn't a bad number to run with. This is very similar to Knob Creeks Single Barrel Reserve, which is a release consistently diluted to 60% ABV and I like those all the way from fine to amazing. In this series, I'm comparing a variety of Single Barrel releases from the Full Proof lineup, selected by various stores, vendors and societies in the USA.
Honey, clove, orange peel. Caramel, toffee, light ethanol. Light cornbread.
Medium mouth feel. Lead with waffle cone, light nutty caramel. lots of tobacco, pepper, and some rich fruits like prune, date and cherry. Lots of oak at the end.
Medium in length, dry and oaky with a nice orange body. Some pepper, lots of cocoa.
This was really interesting, and all over the map in a very off profile way for most bourbon. I enjoyed it a lot, but it may be too dry for some.
