Butterscotch, coffee, vanilla and stone fruits right up front on the nose, and follow through on the palate adding candy corn, spun sugar and barrel spice. D&M Tasting Notes
Lots of official tasting notes for bourbon mention “butterscotch.” In the case of 1792 Single Barrel bourbon, they’re right. The nose on this whiskey is full of rich butterscotch, toffee and figs, with just a touch of vanilla extract on the backend. The entry is a bit spicy at first. That butterscotch and creamy caramel found in the nose wrap around a roasted corn note, along with a small squeeze of citrus and that fig note. It’s got a slightly viscous mouthfeel, which I’m attributing to the high-ish proof. There’s very slight heat on the finish, which is medium-length and leaves behind slight barrel char and toffee.
