Very old Barton 1792 1792 225TH ANNIVERSARY KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY
On June 1st of the year 1792, the Commonwealth of Kentucky joined the United States of America. Barton 1792 Distillery released a commemorative 225th Anniversary Bourbon as a one-time release meant to be available only in Kentucky.
A distinct batch of barrels was hand-selected especially for this commemorative release. These barrels aged for 10 years at Barton 1792 Distillery before being bottled at specifically 92.15 proof.
This special proof is a nod to the year 1792 and to Kentucky being the 15th state to join the Union. The dark blue neckband on the bottle and back label is a salute to the official state seal. Very old Barton 1792
This is the sixth limited edition release of 1792 Bourbon expressions, the 225th Anniversary Bourbon joins previous releases of High Rye, Sweet Wheat, Port Finish, Single Barrel, and Full Proof Bourbons.
It was a gift and it is quite pricy, but a great deal for what I paid. My only complaint is that the box arrived in poor condition, it was all bent and torn, I had to ditch the original packaging which I would have liked to include with the gift. Other than that great experience.
