1792 Small Batch Rating
Since I have also reviewed Kirkland Small Batch Bourbon (sourced from 1792), I’m obligated to offer a few thoughts on how they compare because they seem similar. Mind you, this is purely from memory and not an actual side by side. That said based on my written review, I recall Kirkland Small Batch being a little bit more earthy, oaky, spicy, and grainy.
I have far too much fun writing about whiskey and singlehandedly running The Whiskey Shelf to bring you independent, honest, and useful reviews, comparisons, and more. I’m proudly Asian American and can speak Cantonese, Mandarin, and some Japanese.There are no sponsors, no media companies, and no nonsense. Support The Whiskey Shelf by Buying Me A Shot.
Shattered glass really sucks, so if you’re on the move, this Glencairn-like stainless steel snifter glass should survive your travels. Full transparency, this is an Amazon affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
