Batch #6 - The Bad Guy has broken out of Colorado... Originally made as an experimental batch, Bad Guy is a wheated four-grain bourbon. It was 291's first award-winning bourbon whiskey and is most bold, rich, and complex whiskey. Made from corn, malted wheat, malted rye and beech smoked barley mash, this whiskey is heavier on the sweet side despite its high proof. Always presented at barrel proof. 2021 57.8% Alc. /115.6 PROOF?
This Superior bourbon has flavors of butterscotch and caramel notes, delicately balanced with hints of fruit and toffee. The body is rich and lingers on the tongue for a delicate and pleasant finish.
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.
10th Street's line currently includes two whiskies, both of which are single malt varieties and are ?hand crafted? and distilled in custom cooper pot stills. While the STR Single Malt is non-peated, the Peated Single Malt straddles American and Scottish tradition as it is created with specially peated malt imported from Scotland that the distillers believe is synergistic with San Jose's water and means the water doesn?t need to be treated. The Peated Single Malt Whisky also earned the ?Best in Class? gold medal at the 2018 Whiskies of the World competition, and Double Gold at the New York World Spirits Competition this year.
10th Street Peated Single Malt American Whisky Tasting Notes Nose:
The nose has notes of citrus, with a peat smoke essence.
Palate: The palate is creamy, full of flavors of vanilla and dark red apple peels, turning into rounded peat flavors.
Finish: A delicate balance of fruity and smoky notes.?
1792 is the year that Kentucky became a State, and the bottling of this special Bourbon commemorates that date. Aged for eight years, this Bourbon has aromas of corn, caramel and shortbread. Classic balance of spice and oak leads to a long dry finish.
