General description

My kind of bourbon, very rye forward! Lots of spice on the nose and palate, as well as some interesting and unique notes that come through (sunscreen and new leather on the nose?!). The finish is unusual in that it doesn’t really differentiate itself from the palate via the swallow transition. For me this unusual element added rather than detracted from the experience however. The oak notes are excellently balanced in this whiskey, taking a back seat on the palate and finish to let the more complex and subtle flavours shine.

Nose

A really interesting nose, there’s new leather car seats and sunscreen upfront along with prominent rye spice aromas - nutmeg and cinnamon - which is followed by the usual vanilla toffee, apple and pear notes you’d expect from a bourbon.

Palate

Medium bodied mouthfeel. Lots of rye influence in the flavour profile again with the spices, cinnamon, nutmeg and white pepper coming through on the delivery. Creamy vanilla toffee, cherry, more pear and just a hint of oaky tannins develop.

Finish

The profile doesn’t really change on the finish. Rather the palate notes, initially the rye spices on the swallow, continue to reverberate. The rye spices eventually subside to leave vanilla toffee and light oak notes. It’s unusual, in a good way.

General description

Good aroma but has a harsh bite like a higher proof whiskey without the benefit of higher proof. The finish is good, but not great. At $24 it's a decent whiskey.

General description

This was good but not great. This was my first taste of a 1792 product. It had the typical bourbon profile, but not enough of the good notes. It seemed a bit thin and slightly watered down to me. I am hopeful that the single barrel version will be more to my liking.

I really liked this one
Nose: vanilla straight up and floral notes back that up
Taste: vanilla, butter not butterscotch, oily and ends with nice sweet note love it and the after taste is pretty water down with no big surprises but definitely try this one

caramel, vanilla, and a little hot to the nose, but not bad to drink. doesn't have too much character, but it was a different taste, so I was to displeased since I only paid $30. some may really enjoy this, but not my favorite.

Caramel
Banana
Oak

Rye spice from middle to end of palate

General description

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

Nose

81

vanilla, banana, metally, creamy, bread/biscuity. Adding water rounds it off nicely as the metallic notes vanish. a

Taste

82

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

Finish

80

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.

General description

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.

Nose

pralines and maple syrup. sweet.

Palate

sweet at first then tart and astringent.

Finish

burn.

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.
