Susan bought me a bottle of 1792 Small Batch for my birthday, and we had so much fun drinking it, we completely forgot to take a picture while there was still some whiskey left in the bottle!
Here’s my review:
You won’t be able to tell from the picture above (because the bottle is empty), but the bourbon has a medium to dark amber and substantial viscosity.
1792 Small Batch Bourbon smells of caramel, alcohol, oak and vanilla. The alcohol scent is quite strong but not enough to overpower the other flavors.
When 1792 Small Batch Bourbon hits the mouth, fruity flavors power through the substantial alcohol burn. I pick up bananas and raisins. As the bourbon moves toward the back of my mouth, flavors of caramel and wood with hints of baking spices come to the forefront. The stuff finishes with pleasing flavors of oak and vanilla.
I really enjoy 1792 Small Batch. The baking spices add a layer of complexity that sets it apart from others. The flavors aren’t what I enjoy on a regular basis, but it’s something I’ll reach for when I want a bit more to ponder.
