Tasting Notes – 1792 225th Anniversary Bourbon

🛏 Rested for 20 minutes in a Glencairn

👉Nose: Cherries and plums, caramel, oak, cedar, chocolate, mild alcohol
👉Taste: Caramel, tea, oak; light sweetness; medium body
👉Finish: Caramel and light sweetness dissipate, and oak and char build for a moderately long finish with only a mild alcohol burn

1792 225th Anniversary Bourbon is not an overly complex bourbon, other than the nose. The nose is very pleasant, with full rich candy-like flavors and a caramel and woody undertone. The taste is that of a more traditional bourbon, but on the dry side with only mild sweetness.
