Excited to try this as I 'm a fan of the 1792 lines but I tend not to like the less aged items and am super in to the Full Proof and even more so the 12 Year. Nose: Toasted pecan, dark caramelized sugar, vanilla, dried cherries. Flavor: Lacking the harshness from the ethanol of the standard 1792 bottlings. Sweeter as well. Dark dried red fruits, vanilla, caramel, a little bit of barrel funk that I associate with fortified wine finished whiskey, and very little alcohol bite. Finish: Medium short, a little spicy and nutty, a little drying as well. A little bit of funk that is somewhere between stinky weed and skunk that I found just a hair off-putting but not enough that I hated it. Overall I liked it and I'd drink it again. If I found a bottle at MSRP (Yeah Right!) I'd buy it but not at secondary.
