1792 Small Batch Bourbon
1792 Small Batch Bourbon is a higher-end bourbon from Barton, itself one of a number of bourbon brands owned by Sazerac. It was originally sold as 1792 Ridgewood Reserve, until Brown-Forman successfully sued Barton in 2004, arguing that consumers would confuse it with Woodford Reserve. The name refers to the year Kentucky gained statehood, a nod to bourbon history by a company that’s only been in business since 1933.

Additional details
Sweet honey and vanilla tones is 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.
Quite tannic and fairly peppery, with a heavily woody flavor 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.
