1792 Full Proof is Barton’s sort of cask strength bourbon. I say “sort of” because full proof doesn’t exactly mean cask strength, but rather the white dog’s barrel entry proof, in this case 125 proof. Technicalities aside, 125 proof is virtually cask strength as most cask strength bourbons are 110-130 proof (55-65% ABV) anyways.
While I’m talking about bourbon facts, here’s another one for you – Barton is owned by The Sazerac Company, who also owns Buffalo Trace. Although they are owned by the same parent company, they use different mashbills and are located 60 miles apart, so for the most part they probably operate as independent distilleries. Even though 1792 Full Proof is a virtually cask strength bourbon from the same parent company as Buffalo Trace, I wouldn’t quite say that Full Proof is the same as Stagg Jr, but I’ll get to that at another time.
