Barton 1792 Distillery, Bardstown Kentucky, USA
Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bottle Proof: 125 (62.5% abv.)
Barrel Yield: 174 Bottles
Unfortunately due to Covid travel restrictions we couldn't make our annual visit to Kentucky this year. Luckily Barton Master Distiller, Danny Kahn came to the rescue by picking not one but two incredible barrels for us! Fortunately the team from Visit Bardstown captured the whole experience as part of their National Bourbon Day event, checkout the video below!
After being name Word Whiskey of the Year in 2020 the demand for Full proof and Full proof barrel selects has been off the charts, luckily Danny pulled some string and was able to secure one for us!
Danny's Tasting Notes:
"I'm getting a lot of stone fruits, cinnamon, vanilla, caramel, baking spice, the sweetness really helps balance out the finish. I'm noticing barrel aged components that tells me this was probably from a higher floor in the rickhouse. This one is my personal favorite no doubt about it."
Huge thank you to Danny and the team from Visit Bardstown for including us in your National Bourbon Day celebrations and picking these two incredible barrels for Australia!
