1792 Full Proof Straight Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedOld oak color. The classic vanilla, brown sugar, and caramel nose. Really smells sweet initially, but then you pick up sour apples, leather and ginger. Taste: comes in initially really hot and spicy. then I pick up leather and tobacco. Not surprisingly it has a bitter finish, but not an enjoyable. overall a solid Barrel strength whiskey, even if it isn't the best one I've had.
