1792 Sweet Wheat Bourbon. Image courtesy Barton 1792 Distillery/Sazerac. This Bourbon from Bardstown’s Barton 1792 Distillery is made with wheat in the mashbill instead of rye, and the result is a sweeter whiskey with a nose full of baked apples, charred oak, pipe tobacco, leather, caramel, and vanilla. The taste is fruity with a good balance of spices – apples, peaches, cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla with hints of oak and caramel in the background. The finish is mouthwatering, smooth, and long with fruity apple and peach notes balanced by hints of spice and oak. (July, 2015)
