15 Stars Kentucky Straight Bourbon finished in French Cognac casks
|1792 Aged Twelve Years is made using the same high-rye mash bill as the flagship no-age statement Small Batch Bourbon bottling. Aged for 12 years, this bourbon bottling will be released each summer going forward. The first batch is set to launch in July 2019.|
The new Double Eagle Very Rare Bourbon, according to those behind it, is matured twice as long as the standard Eagle Rare 10-year-old bourbon. It is all about the presentation with this one in addition to the age though, with the Double Eagle crystal decanter featuring ?two beautifully sculptured crystal glass eagles, one inside the bottle, and one serving as the stopper.
Nose:?Hints of vanilla, toasted oak and caramel.
Palate:?A gracefully aged oaky flavor.
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.
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.
