|Aultmore has large scale production -- reaching over 2 million liters per year. Their whiskies, generally being produced for blends, made single malts production fairly rare, other than the intermittent independent bottling. After experimenting with an in-house single malt offering they released their first official bottling in in 2004; a 12-year old. Since then they have released several age statement expressions, a flora and fauna release, and rare malts release.
This 18-year-old Speyside single malt is aged for 18 years in American white oak casks. With its honeyed and herbaceous notes, this summery spirit won a Double Gold medal at the 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Bottled at 46% ABV.
Our American is a pre-prohibition style, short-aged, under 1 year, in American white oak barrels used previously for our 291 Colorado Bourbon. Floral with a buttery mouthfeel, while the copper provides a fresh cut leather finish.

15 Stars Triple Cask Kentucky Straight Bourbon finished in Cognac, Port, and rum casks
This hand selected barrel produces a deep rich amber color.1792 is full bodied with notes of cinnamon and pepper and lots of brown sugar and hints of maple. Long spicy finish that brings out oak, baking spices, and a dark fruity sweetness.
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.
