  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    Ethanol, caramel and honey, light vanilla, some faint fruitiness. Akin to berries like strawberries and cream. Light, sweet, fruity, and a bit of heat on the nose.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel, with lots of ethanol. Caramel, toffee, cocoa, and some rich fruitiness. Shockingly fruity, but delicious. Wish there was less heat, though.

  • Finish:

    Long, sweet cream, caramel, toffee, oak and more strawberries and cream. Lots of ethanol though, which is sort of a buzzkill.

  • Overall:

    This is a really unique selection, loaded with cream and fruits, definitely a wild profile, I just wish the heat was more restrained. That's the facet that keeps it from climbing higher. Other than that, its really enjoyable and I love the fruits.

  • Score:
