“Bourbon insiders have long acknowledged that full proof bourbon has a distinguished and rich flavor. This bourbon underwent a distinct filtering process,forgoing the typical chill filtration and passing only through a plate and frame filter. This allowed the bourbon to maintain a robust proof for bottling, as well as a full, rich and bold flavor. Bottled at its original 125 barrel entry proof, just as it was years ago when the barrels were first filled, 1792 Full Proof Bourbon is exceptionally distinct.”

1792 Full Proof Bourbon taste & aftertaste
1792 Full Proof has an intense and viscous mix of vanilla, caramel, and licorice that explode on contact with my tongue, followed by a surge of smoky oak, cinnamon, orange, apple, and heat. It’s incredibly flavorful with nearly as much heat, making it a burly and occasionally challenging bourbon to process.
