About the Whiskey:
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.
Aged 5-6 years new charred American oak, finished 2-4 years in Cognac casks.
Thomas S. Moore Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Cognac Casks has an aroma of fruit and citrus that mingle with slightly herbal notes and traces of jasmine and lavender. On the palate, notes of orange, apricot and vanilla give way to earthy undertones, with a toasted oak and cedar finish. 93.4 proof.
"The overall sip contains scents and flavors that are tightly intertwined, making you take your time to pull them out. It starts with a robust nose that is full of fruity flavors that rest on top of a bed of aged oak. This pleasant fruity opening transitions to a palate that is noticeably dry and full of earthy flavors. The palate nicely highlights the time spent in the Cognac barrels. The finish ends things on drier notes of lingering spice. Overall, this is a nice barrel aged finished bourbon. This year's Cognac Barrel Finish will please those who like a challenging sip, forcing you to take your time to dissect the flavors and fully appreciate what the whiskey has to offer." - Breaking Bourbon
