1792 Single Barrel Breaking Bourbon "Flavor Bomb" Pick
Out of the three samples Breaking Bourbon was picking from, one, in particular, stood out for its unique character. 1792 is already known has a spicy bourbon thanks to its high-rye mashbill. That was even more true with this pick. Overall this was a fairly easy choice out of the three samples. This 1792 Single Barrel has everything we want out of a single barrel pick. It was the best representation of a unique single barrel that’s packed with flavor. It’s sweet on the palate, spicy during its finish, loaded with depth, and features overall unique character traits that make it a true standout from the pack.
- Nose: Vanilla, caramel, spice, and light oak. The nose nicely opens up over time.
- Palate: Caramel chews, Werther’s Original candy, and oak. It’s surprisingly sweet at times which is nicely offset by oak and encroaching rye spice from the finish.
- Finish: Potent rye spice, dark fruit, and light oak. The spice really shines during the finish and lingers for some time.
