|Whisky||1792 Small Batch|
Too much burn
Vanilla and spice
First sip: Spice, vanilla, nutmeg
Second sip: more of the same, maybe a little calmer after some swirling
Short, heavy on the spice
I remember this being very spicy and not well balanced. Lacked flavor and complexity. Overall, not too impressed.
I enjoy this. great price for a small batch. easy sipper.
Honestly a little disappointing. Good but not great. Seems like brand > bourbon
This bourbon is my new favorite because it's complex, dark tasting, and the rye spice keeps you interested. I would definitely score this a 92/100.
Banana up front
Dark fruits (mostly cherry)
Rye spice from middle to end of palate
Begins with oak and then butterscotch
Seems like a long finish
Granny Smith apple skin aftertaste
A decent bourbon that benefits a lot from just a bit of added water. without water added it's nice and decent, albeit a bit thin and predictable in development, and I would mark it 77-78. With water it steps up a notch and it becomes a very decent + 80 points bourbon
vanilla, banana, metally, creamy, bread/biscuity. Adding water rounds it off nicely as the metallic notes vanish. a
soft arrival, vanilla, spices, again that metallic (which is in fact a bit unpleasant). adding water changes all that as the metallic note is gone and some red fruity tones become more prominent. A big improvement
long and warm with banana's and nutty tones that round of wit spices (nutmeg). here the added water doesn't improve anything as it diminishes and shortens the finish.
nice sipping bourbon
One of my favorites
sweet,. vannilla,. boring
floral nose. nice spice up front with a sweet honey and vanilla medium and finish. decent for the price
sweeter scent to start, very subtle spicy taste without a bite, smooth going down, great bourbon for the price
First taste nice spicy flavor with honey. Not over powering and no bite. Not a cigar type whiskey, but certainly good as an after dinner or dessert type.
spicy but smooth
perfume smell, smooth taste with a distinct spicy bite
great bourbon for the price. sweet, good flavour. medium finish.
sweet nose. very pleasant. reasonable price.
candy sugar wood maple
pepper and wood wheat
Great sweet smell, no bite, and a nice smooth finish....
Pleasant sipping bourbon. Highly recommend
Great little sipping bourbon with good flavor. Vanilla and oak compliment the long finish
long and smooth
The nose is intensely sweet almost like maple syrup as the bottle is opened. After it sits the oak and medicinal qualities surface but the sweetness is still strong. Taste is not nearly as good as the nose. I feel let down. Some sweetness and spice but more tart and astringent than sweet. The finish is very awkward not sure what to make of it. Despite the nice nose i don't think I will buy again.
pralines and maple syrup. sweet.
sweet at first then tart and astringent.
just finished my bottle of Maker's 46 and was looking for something with a nice vanilla, caramel and oaky flavor. 1792 was just what I was looking for. leaves a nice oily coating on your inner cheeks and the finish is long.
Nice finishing notes. Pleasant to sip.
Not impressed. Doesn't suck but gives no reason to come back.
Star liquor store barrel select so a little more depth than usual.
Good for the price. Great for a small cigar gathering
vanilla, oak, plum
slightly spicy, but still smooth.
mild and smooth, vanilla and oak.
i havent had many types of whisky or bourbon but this had to be the best i have tasted so far
Very, very good bourbon, but pricier than I like to pay for bourbon.
Very spicy finish...almost like a rye. not great because the taste doesn't stand out enough to balance against the spice of the rye.
Sweet but spicy
rye grain and spice
