1792 Sweet Wheat Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 45.6% abv
I hadn’t seen this one in the stores before so when I saw a reasonable price on bottle-spot I decided to buy it and get it shipped to me. I was not particularly happy with the last purchase of 1792, but to be fair the price was very reasonable. I took a chance on this one because of some of the positive reviews I read–although I had a feeling it was largely due to the obsession with wheated bourbons (thanks Pappy).
Medium Amber with a hint of orange
Medium heat on the nose, hint of orange peel, crushed almonds, toffee and gingersnaps.
Medium heat on the palate with a bit more spice than expected, in a good way. The orange peel and ginger definitely comes through through the tongue. The mouthfeel isn’t complex and the finish is moderate.
