Barton 1792 Distillery has unveiled the latest in its line of limited-edition releases: 1792 Aged Twelve Years.
Using the same recipe as its flagship 1792 Small Batch Bourbon, the Aged Twelve Years expression is 96.6 proof.
Suggested retail pricing is $49.99 for a 750-ml. bottle.
The 1792 Aged Twelve Years will be available at retail in July. One batch of the Aged Twelve Years Bourbon will release each summer.
Master Distiller Danny Kahn describes this newest offering as, “Super-complex up-front aromas. The first thing that hits the palate is a subtle but rich sweetness. It is full, slightly creamy, with a hint of pleasant spice that settles on the tongue. At the end, there is a touch of oaky smokiness that rounds out the aromas. The subtle smokiness of the oak married to the slightly spicy rye flavors and the complex aromas are a nod to what one should expect from a well-matured bourbon.”
The 1792 Aged Twelve Years joins other previous limited-edition expressions from 1792 Distillery, such as High Rye, Sweet Wheat, Single Barrel, Port Finish, Full Proof and Bottled in Bond.
