New 1792 Port Finish Bourbon Your Sweet Whiskey Treat

| September 29, 2015

1792 Port Finish Bourbon The Sazerac owned 1792 bourbon label, having earlier this year released the first in a series of “premium” whiskies, is back again for another bottling that is described as being “quite limited” in its release. Known as 1792 Port Finish Bourbon, this around $40 offering will likely appeal most to those who like their bourbon on the sweeter side.

The 1792 Port Finish Bourbon is an eight year old release, being bottled at 88.9 proof after aging first for six years in new American white oak barrels. It was then aged for a further two in used port wine barrels, resulting in a whiskey who’s tasting profile is described as having

a rich aroma of apple and fruit mingling with noticeable vanilla. The taste is soft, yet balanced. Filled with toasted caramel, jam-like fruit, and a touch of licorice. A clean, somewhat lingering finish completes the taste.

Though this is described by those behind the Barton 1792 Distillery as being the “first and only batch” of it, it is also noted “the distillery is considering making more.” Plans are said to be in the works as well for more new and different 1792 bourbons in the coming years.
