Review #511 | /r/Bourbon Review #293 – Barton 1792 Port Finish
The Schtick: This is a port finished bourbon produced by Barton.
ABV: 44.45% ABV
Nose: Sweet jam, stewed fruits. Vanilla, honey, caramel. Faint cocoa. It’s mostly all sweet.
Taste: Medium mouth feel, sweet and fruity. No heat. Lots of stewed fruits here as well as a jammy dessert set of notes like cocoa, vanilla, confectioners sugar, some faint tobacco. There’s no bitterness and it’s all sweet.
Finish: Short, no heat. Sweet whisp of strawberry preserve and then it’s gone.
Overall: Overall, this is really interesting. I love the palate and the nose as a good dessert but the finish is fairly disappointing. I’d honestly probably buy a bottle if it were on shelves, just to have around when the sweet tooth hits. It’s not super remarkable, though.
