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, apples and pears, vanilla cream, light cocoa. Some light almond, ethanol.
Honey, ethanol. Nice medium mouth feel. Vanilla cream, fruity apple tart, faint chalky character. Some bitter oak, light pepper.
Long but very hot. Apples, vanilla cream, cocoa and rich oak. Faint tobacco. Mostly fruity and hot.
This is nice, but very hot. It leans towards the fruity and oaky profile with notes like caramel and toffee that I usually find in bourbons taking the back seat.
