A sort of hand me down from his Aristocrat Father-in-law, Thomas Moore inherited what was originally named he Willett & Frenke Distillery. Moore successfully ran the distillery for 50yrs until Prohibition.

Although it was renamed to the Barton 1792 Distillery, it keeps Moore's tradition alive by operating on the same site using the same methods that Moore used over a century ago.

If you're lucky enough to nab a bottle be sure to savor it slowly as this is a limited edition in part due to the aging process. After all, 12 years is a long time to wait, but like Roosevelt said, "Nothing worth having comes easy."

This bourbon is crafted using 1792's signature "high rye" recipe then aged for 12 years in charred American white oak barrels. It's no wonder this bourbon was awarded the 2020 Double Gold Medal at the International Spirits Challenge.

Notes: Ultra-smooth, full-bodied. Aromas and flavors of vanilla, cocoa, and oak.
Pairings: Lamb chops, loaded potatoes, roasted vegetables
Serving Suggestions: Neat or on the rocks
Region: Kentucky

After distillation, the bourbon is aged in new, American oak casks in Warehouse Z on the distillery's estate in Bardstown, Kentucky. Warehouse Z is situated on the edge of a bluff and as a result, enjoys the intense heat and humidity that are ideal for maturing whiskey. “In order to create this unique bourbon,” says Ken Pierce, Barton 1792’s master distiller, “the finest barrels are selected and tasted from the best aging warehouses. Only those barrels deemed ‘exceptional’ are then bottled individually, one by one. This preserves the distinct character of each barrel.”

Once the bourbon has matured for a minimum of eight years, it is brought to proof with water drawn from the Tom Moore spring. The iron-free, Kentucky limestone water — the same water used by Moore over a century ago when crafting his own whiskey — adds a subtle touch of complexity and depth to the bourbon.

Like the standard issue 1792, the single barrel’s nose is carried by sweet butterscotch notes, though a bit fruitier overall, with hints of ginger and Fuji apple. The palate is caramel-forward, with just a nip due to the rye, leading to a sweet finish tempered with warm bitter cloves.

Previous limited edition releases from 1792 sold well and became scarce quite quickly, and we expect the same from this award-winning distillery’s new single barrel release.
