Thomas S. Moore Port Cask Finished Bourbon is one of three releases in the new "ultra-premium" brand from Barton 1792 Distillery. Moore founded the distillery in 1889 in Bardstown, Kentucky now known as Barton 1792 but it closed in 1920 due to Prohibition.

This bourbon brand uses Barton's signature high-rye bourbon mash bill. For this Extended Cask Finish series, the bourbon is aged for an undisclosed amount of years in new, charred oak barrels before it is finished in in the secondary cask for 1-3 years. Limited availability begins December 2020 with additional cask finishes to be released each fall.

Tasting Notes

"Dried bing cherries, raisins and dates are on the main stage of flavors, while rich, nutty flavors of cashews and walnuts enter from the wings. A good bit of heat and herbaceousness add a pleasant medicinal quality to the finish, as well as a hint of smoked ham. The overall effect is full-bodied, but somewhat refreshing from the tart and herbal notes, making this bourbon a nice option for an elegant aperitif. "
