Five Whiskeys Not Named Jack, Jim or Jameson
1792 is a higher-end bourbon from Barton. The name refers to the year Kentucky gained statehood. This is a high rye bourbon aged eight years, bottled at 93.7 proof and priced and marketed to compete against the likes of Knob Creek and Woodford Reserve. In appearance, this bourbon is a deep caramel color, with a subtle taste of honey, orange and spice, hinting at the relatively high rye content. A “distinct woodiness” looms in the background for those of you that like to admire your whiskey instead of drinking it.
