While caramel notes and a smooth mouth-feel certainly come to mind, bold and brash (as 1792’s source materials credit) may be a little far. This is not the sort of bourbon that would get into a bar fight. Instead, it’s perfect for sipping on a warm summer day as the sun sets, or mixing into a low-sugar (potentially high-citrus) cocktail. 1792’s versatility is impressive. Like an ambitious, well-aged wine, 1792 knows it is delicious without needing to show off. Just a little more follow-through – less of a sharp end note – would be the perfect cap to a great drink.
