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.
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.
Medium mouth feel, with lots of ethanol. Caramel, toffee, cocoa, and some rich fruitiness. Shockingly fruity, but delicious. Wish there was less heat, though.
Long, sweet cream, caramel, toffee, oak and more strawberries and cream. Lots of ethanol though, which is sort of a buzzkill.
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.
