1792 225th Anniversary Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
United States Type: Bourbon
- The youngest barrels in the batch are 10 years old
- Has 1792’s standard bourbon mash of 75% corn, 15% rye, 10% malted barley
- Bottled at 46.075% ABV (92.15 Proof)
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.
