1792 Ridgemont Reserve Bourbon Review
Distillery: Barton 1792 Distillery, Bardstown, KY. This is the former Tom Moore Distillery
Age: “No less than 8 years”
Proof: 93.7 Proof, 46.85% ABV
Color: Solid Caramel
Nose: Corn sweetness with good backbone of the rye, vanilla, some light peach.
Taste: A nice thickness with balance of the sweet and spice. The flavor drinks well under 93 proof with little burn. This smoothness and texture are indeed a compliment to the crafting process and selection by Ken Pierce. Somewhat rich and dessert-like in nature with elements of date nut, pecan pie, apple with creamy textures on the back end.
Finish: Moderate to long with mild lingering sweetness.
