1792 Ridgemont Reserve Bourbon Review

1792 Ridgemont Reserve Bourbon ReviewBourbon: 1792 Ridgemont Reserve Bourbon

Distillery: Barton 1792 Distillery, Bardstown, KY. This is the former Tom Moore Distillery

Age: “No less than 8 years”

Proof: 93.7 Proof, 46.85% ABV

Color: Solid Caramel

Nose: Corn sweetness with good backbone of the rye, vanilla, some light peach.

Taste: A nice thickness with balance of the sweet and spice. The flavor drinks well under 93 proof with little burn. This smoothness and texture are indeed a compliment to the crafting process and selection by Ken Pierce. Somewhat rich and dessert-like in nature with elements of date nut, pecan pie, apple with creamy textures on the back end.

Finish: Moderate to long with mild lingering sweetness.

    Discovered 1792 about five years ago. Love it! It has a character that no other bourbon can mimic.
