Sample #2 – 1792 Full Proof Single Barrel, Barrel #3252, Lot 11-L-19.
Nose: Buttered grilled corn; traditional bourbon vanilla and brown sugar notes, along with cinnamon and baking spice; earthy (potting soil); grape bubblegum; apricot. A complex nose, and one that lacks much of the “cardboard” nose that can come with Barton products. Approachable for 125 proof.
Palate: Creamy. Grape soda; baking spice; dry oak; cream soda. Delicious. Not overly saturated with flavor, but also not overly saturated with heat.
Finish: Medium in length. Sweet gum ball; vanilla; wafer cookies; brown sugar; oak. Nothing off-putting here in any way. In fact, the vanilla and wafer cookies lingers on the tongue nicely, inviting the creamy/fruity character of the palate to come back for more.
