1792 Sweet Wheat Bourbon, 45.6%

Price: $33 ● Issue: Fall 2015 ● Reviewer: John Hansell

Barton 1792 distillery's first-ever wheated bourbon, where the wheat replaces rye as the ‘spice' ingredient (similar to Weller and Maker's Mark). A sweet and fruity whiskey, with vanilla wafer, cotton candy, caramel custard, blackberry, and ripe peach. Soft oak spice and polished leather on the finish keep the sweetness in check. Very gentle in personality; a great starter bourbon.
