Formerly known as Ridgemont Reserve, 1792 is a bourbon distilled in Bardstown and named for the year that Kentucky became a state. A bit of a hidden gem, with a very low profile despite a huge 94.5 points in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2013.
NOSE: Sweet honey and vanilla tones are balanced with orange and spice, hinting at the relatively high rye content. A few minutes in the glass lets the nose open up nicely. A distinct woodiness sits in the background.
PALATE: Quite tannic and fairly peppery, with a heavily woody flavour profile. A hint of maple is noticeable, but more than anything, what stands out is the dry, tongue-coating mouthfeel.
FINISH: Oak predominates on a long, but drying, nearly hot finish. Some vanilla also peeks through.Learn More
