1792 Aged 12 Years Bourbon Whiskey was crafted by Master Distiller Danny Kahn describes 1792 Aged 12 Years Bourbon Whiskey as, “Super-complex up front aromas". The first thing that hits the palate is a subtle but rich sweetness. It is full, slightly creamy, with a hint of pleasant spice that settles on the tongue. Walnut, toasted oak, and rye spice produce a bold front to the flavor profile. Much of the sweetness the nose hinted at has disappeared on the palate. Almost immediately you can feel the dryness of the bourbon hit your tongue. Without much sweetness to help balance this, the bourbon is a bit one-sided and certainly doesn’t hide its age. At the end, there is a touch of oaky smokiness that rounds out the aromas. The subtle smokiness of the oak married to the slightly spicy rye flavors and the complex aromas are a nod to what one should expect from a well-matured bourbon. Each time I take it in, I find more and more beautiful interactions!”
Aged Twelve Years will be crafted from the same rye bourbon mash bill as the distillery’s namesake Small Batch offering and bottled at 96.6 proof, although it is much harder to come by.
