1792 Bottled In Bond Bourbon Whiskey is another great annual release from the 1792 line of bourbons. In 1897, the Bottled-in-Bond Act revolutionized the quality of American whiskey. Carrying on that tradition, 1792 Bottled-In-Bond bourbon is bottled at exactly 100 proof for a bold taste and lingering finish.
Rye spice, vanilla, and caramel are most prominent with a trace of oak underneath. The scents are oddly a bit light, lacking the anticipated dose of ethanol I would expect for 100 proof. Enjoyable overall.
Rye spice mingles with caramel and vanilla creating a flavor profile that’s easily alluded to based on the aroma. There’s a developed amount of seasoned oak as well, giving it much needed dimension. The rye spice and seasoned oak present themselves most prominently, overtaking the sweeter notes, which ultimately makes for a characteristically spicy sip. It’s not quite as chewy as compared to 1792 Small Batch, but it does have a nice mouthfeel overall.
The sip ends nicely with rye spice and seasoned oak dominating the start of the finish. There’s a hint of caramel sweetness as well, providing a sweeter note to contrast the more overpowering spice found in the finish. Medium to long lasting.
