Barton 1792 Full Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon
This is a Kentucky straight bourbon from the Sazerac company's Barton 1792 distillery, bottled at the bourbon's original 125 barrel entry proof.
The Barton 1792 distillery is one of Kentucky's oldest, having also been called simply Barton, and Thomas Moore over the years. The site was badly damaged in 2018 when both halves of one of its main warehouses collapsed in the same month, ensuring a likely shortage to come.
This whisky was awarded "Best in the World" by Jim Murray in his 2020 edition of his Whisky Bible, scoring 97.5 points out of 100. Quite the turn around for a distillery he branded as the "worst in Kentucky" when writing 25 years ago. Sazerac acquired the plant back in 2009.
