Producer’s tasting notes:
True to its heritage, the unmistakable spice of 1792 Bourbon is met with notes of charred oak and fresh mint. Subtle caramel apple tones are delicately balanced with the lingering essence of coffee and black pepper.

In 1897, the Bottled-in-Bond Act revolutionized the quality of American whiskey. To be labelled ‘Bottled in Bond’ in the USA, a whiskey must be the outcome of one distillation season under one distiller at a single distillery. It then must be aged in a federally bonded warehouse for at least four years and then bottled at precisely 100 proof.
Carrying on that tradition, this well-aged bourbon comes from only barrels filled during the same distilling season and is bottled at exactly 100 proof for a bold taste and lingering finish—a testament to the Bottled-in-Bond Act established over a century ago.
The mashbill is undisclosed, but the bourbon-whiskey is marketed as high rye, and believed to be around 15% to 25% rye making for a suitably spicy expression.
