Description

This is the second release from the Tokiwa Imports Sommelier Series. Two Pinot Noir casks from a renowned winery in Lompoc, California, were sourced and curated by Master Sommelier Kenneth Fredickson and then sent to Eigashima in early 2016. Four-year-old single malt initially aged in ex-Bourbon barrels spent an additional 18 months in these Pinot casks, resulting in only 500 bottles of this rare release. The staves of Sirugue French Oak have truly imparted elegance to this Single Malt Whisky. Aromatics of malt are nuanced by red fruits and floral notes. On the palate there is a richness punctuated by a long finish with soft edges braced by baking spice and leather.

ContentThis is the second release from the Tokiwa Imports Sommelier Series. Two Pinot Noir casks from a renowned winery in Lompoc, California, were sourced and curated by Master Sommelier Kenneth Fredickson and then sent to Eigashima in early 2016. Four-year-old single malt initially aged in ex-Bourbon barrels spent an additional 18 months in these Pinot casks, resulting in only 500 bottles of this rare release. The staves of Sirugue French Oak have truly imparted elegance to this Single Malt Whisky. Aromatics of malt are nuanced by red fruits and floral notes. On the palate there is a richness punctuated by a long finish with soft edges braced by baking spice and leather.

A distinct batch of barrels were hand-selected especially for this commemorative release. These barrels aged for 10 years at Barton 1792 Distillery before being bottled at specifically 92.15 proof. This special proof is a nod to the year 1792 and to Kentucky being the 15th state to join the Union. The dark blue neckband on the bottle and back label are a salute to the official state seal. This is the sixth limited edition release of 1792 Bourbon expressions, the 225th Anniversary Bourbon joins previous releases of High Rye, Sweet Wheat, Port Finish, Single Barrel, and Full Proof Bourbons.

1792 225th Anniversary Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Tasting Notes

Nose:?Caramel, fruit, and vanilla cream greet you out of the glass. The fruit is reminiscent of cherry or strawberry. There's also a nice angel food cake note underneath.

Palate:?First thing I get is a little caramel, brown sugar, and oak, followed by a warm, juicy red fruit similar to what I found in the 1792 Sweet Wheat but more pronounced. There is a nice burn on the tail end that carries the notes of fruit and cream into the finish.

Finish:?Sweet, fruity, and oaky with a bit of caramel. The finish is medium in length and the whiskey leaves a nice ?full? feeling coating the mouth. There is a little vanilla and a nice spice to finish it off.
