About the Whiskey:
As whiskeys from Barton 1792 Distillery continue to receive global acclaim, the Distillery has introduced its first ultra-premium brand. This range of Thomas S. Moore Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskeys has been finished in a variety of select casks from around the world. The first three expressions will be available in limited release this December, a Port Finish, a Chardonnay Finish, and a Cabernet Sauvignon Finish.

Barton 1792 Distillery's signature high rye recipe bourbon is aged for many years in new charred oak barrels before filling other casks that previously matured various wines or spirits from around the world, ranging from Cognac to Cabernet to Port and more. In these fabulous casks, the bourbon aged an additional one to three years. This extended cask-finishing method results in elegant whiskeys, each displaying a distinct flavor profile, reflecting nuances of both the bourbon and the finishing cask. 

Tasting Notes:
Thomas S. Moore Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Cabernet Sauvignon Casks has a bold taste, with notes of dark fruit, caramel, and vanilla. This whiskey is 95.3 proof.

Ratings & Reviews:

95 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2023

"Subtle aroma characteristics of cereal and earthy notes shining through on the light and balanced nose combining on the palate with spices, fruitiness and chocolate flavours showing a full and elegant expression; good progression and, overall, well balanced with a nice finish."

Platinum - Ascot Awards 2022

"Chocolate notes everywhere and a distinct fruit sweetness from the wine cask."

Gold - SF World Spirits Competition 2022

93 Points - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2022

"Pungent aromas are of caramel covered dark fruits like plums and black cherries. A curtain of spiced red fruits covers the palate, then slowly pulls back revealing the sweeter notes of brown sugar and vanilla, before turning back to its original mace and cinnamon spiciness."

92 Points - Whisky Advocate:
"Cherry Coke and grape soda, blackberry and raspberry preserves, ginger molasses cookies, hot cocoa mix, iced tea, and cough syrup on the complex nose, which has a weighty character. The palate is light-bodied by comparison, but still deeply enticing with Concord grapes, mint leaves, blackberry cobbler, toasted nuts, cherry cough syrup, cacao nibs, and herbaceous oak. More savory and herbaceous flavors on the finish: cacao, mint, and polished oak."
