This World Whisky of the Year is a Bourbon deserves a place on your top shelf and in your glass.

The Barton 1792 Distillery has been in operation since 1874. It gets the name "1792" from the year that Kentucky became an official state in the US, and it’s also the name of one of their signature single barrel Bourbon Whiskeys. The Barton 1792 Distillery and Barton Brands are owned by Sazerac — one of America’s largest spirits companies. They control dozens of brands from low end to high end — mostly American Whiskeys and Bourbons — that are distributed around the world. The 1792 line of products are all premium, high-end Bourbons that should be in the regular rotation of your home bar.

Jim Murray can be controversial. But no one can doubt that he is not only a renowned Whisky expert with at refined palate, the annual updates to his "Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible" are also hugely influential. And a few months ago it was announced that in the 2020 edition he had given the top honor of "World Whisky of the Year" to 1792 Full Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon — awarding it 97.5 points.

Sazerac and Barton treat the exact specifications like a state secret — as you would expect with a winner like this. But we do know it is bottled at the barrel proof strength of 62.5% ABV without chill-filtration. So, if you buy only one bottle of premium Bourbon this month, make it this one. You’ll thanks us later.

Smartass corner: 
2020 is a banner year for Sazerac. Their premium Whiskeys took the top three positions in the World Whisky of the Year contest this year: 1792 Full Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon came in 1st, William Larue Weller 125.7 Proof 2nd, and Thomas Hardy Sazerac Rye 128.8 Proof 3rd.

Ratings & Reviews
Susan
Susan,
This is downright really good. I think it tastes a little bit like Taylor's barrel proof, Staggs Jr. Batch 15, and E.C. Toasted Barrel all rolled into one. After sipping this, I re-sampled the three and it reminds me of 1792 Fullproof. Call me crazy but 1792 Fullproof is THAT good!
 
DONALD
DONALD,
Very nice, starts off a little hot but finishes great. Caramel, a little what I'd call tobacco instead of smoke, some fruit notes as well. It is a glass to savor, flavor develops as you sip. Highly recommend.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
A great Christmas gift, it's good.
 
Charlie
Charlie,
Really incredible. Definitely get some syrup, clove, caramel, dark fruits. It has a Lightness and pop about it. Even though it’s high proof, the alcohol is not overpowering at all, even neat. Super complex and interesting. Could drink this often!
 
Jason
Jason,
I didn't get the smoke shown on the flavor spiral but I did get the caramel and clove. This was a great sipper, definitely one to just sit back relax and enjoy over time.
 
Chester
Chester,
Awesome sipping whiskey! Will be making a reorder for sure.

Definitely needs a cube of ice and/or splash of water.
 
Emily
Emily,
I’ve only had the picks of this one but every one is top notch
 
Michal
Michal,
Not as powerful as you think it would be. Opens up a lot with some ice. TBH, I couldn't tell that it was smokey.
 
guest
guest,
How are people rating this gem a 7?! This is a beautiful whiskey.
 
Matt
Matt,
Starts off pretty hot but cools down after a little ice. Great taste
 
Don

Excellent sipping Bourbon. The warmth of your hand really brings liquor to life. The fragrance makes to want more.
 
John
John,
Deliciously well balanced, a real treat
 
Ron
Ron,
I like the strong first taste from the higher proof. A good sipper to have with good friends and a cigar
 
Susan
Susan,
We love this whiskey! Usually we are old fashioned type whiskey drinker, but this is definitely a sipping whiskey. Leave it in the glass to open up for about 30 mins and you’ll be blown away at the difference! So easy too drink, maybe too easy!
 
Chris
Chris,
For the money, this is a great bourbon, a go to when hanging out with friends and pairs great with a cigar!
 
Astin
Astin,
Flavorful, smooth and best on the rock or with a splash of water as it unlocks the flavors to truly enjoy the flavor spiral descriptors. A wonderful after dinner addition.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
strong but smooth
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Intense flavor. Takes breath away. Need to sip this one.
 
Joe
Joe,
M&M #5527 - Pecans and mild apple cinnamon. Pears. Light body. Dry finish
 
Tad
Tad,
Smoky with hints of caramel and cinnamon. Spicy and very smooth for a barrel proof. One of my favorites by far!!
 
Dave
Dave,
Best dollar for dollar bourbon in my opinion. Great with an ice cube and a splash. Sipping without burn
 
Ryan
Ryan,
It may be due to my bottle being a local store pick, but I found this to be heavy vanilla and caramel. Currently one of my favorite value buys compared to other harder to find bottles.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Picked up a couple of local store picks and they are above average and currently one of those not ridiculously priced.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Wanted to try it due to the flavor spiral matches up with my other brands in my bar. I didn't really get the smoky part in tasting and it wasn't as smooth as I thought it might be. Overall, it is OK but not for sure I would purchase again.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
This is very smooth for the proof. So far it is my favorite. Great taste with a great finish.
 
Ron
Ron,
A little hot but very good flavor and I think it drinks just as good as the EC barrel proof, holds up well to ice or water and makes it very enjoyable
 
Mike
Mike,
Nice bourbon for proof hounds. Classic bourbon nose and flavors. Occasionally I'll drop the proof down to around 100-105 for an really nice evening / dessert pour.
 
Cameron
Cameron,
Some good characteristics but a medicinal note stands out
 
Andres
Andres,
Smokey and clove taste with a hint of caramel
 
John
John,
If you like high proof bourbon it’s pretty good. Very hot on the pallet. Have had better at the price, will buy again, but probably won’t spend over 50
 
Orlando
Orlando,
Woody vanilla taste, hot on the palate. Pretty good. Shouldn't be over $50 ever
 
Joshua
Joshua,
I like this bourbon and it is pretty good for the retail price of about $45 but anything above $60 is serious price gouging. I can buy it all around for $42-45 locally and at many other online retailers.
 
Craig
Craig,
Real smooth and love the finish!
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Not impressed at all!
 
luke
luke,
Very good. Stands up to ice. Vanilla and spice (alcohol). Really liked it for 45 bucks 3 months ago. Now 3x price :(
 
Gerald
Gerald,
Vanilla, maple, caramel nose, powerful but smooth, long lasting finish
 
Burton
Burton,
The usual bourbon notes in spades. Also I pick up a tobacco taste in the finish. Unique. I haven't had that before!
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Smooth with a cube of ice. Just a touch or two will start your night out on a good note of a well charred barrel.
 
Philip
Philip,
Made the mistake of trying this against Elijah Craig bp c919.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Definitely a great pour
 
Felix
Felix,
Really rally good... this bourbon is a good sipping bourbon full of flavor. Super smooth to the palate.. toasted Carmel smell, vinalla, oak, I would definitely buy again...
 
Kyle

Full flavor bourbon at high strength.
 
Chris
Chris,
I found this much cheaper local and I'm glad I did, I really enjoy this as an every day drink. Full taste, warm going down with nice vanilla and caramel flavors. My current favorite under $100.00
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Overrated, but decent. Complex, but really hot, definitely needs ice. Not an every day sipper for me. I can buy it for $45 all day any day though at any of the liquor stores in town... too pricey here.
 
Douglas
Douglas,
I've enjoyed 1792 FP since it was on my "New Favorites" List. Now a permanent bottle in my bar. Great nose and smooth drink.
 
Michael
Michael,
Complex Bourbon aroma/flavors to the second power! Decent alcohol burn, but once past this it can become a real comfortable regular. Great price for such an amazing product.
 
brandon
brandon,
good juice
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Decent bourbon. I believe it's a bit over-rated, but not a bad one to have in your bar.
 
Matt
Matt,
Very good bourbon, but need water.
 
Ivan
Ivan,
I get some sweet & salty taste from this, with a bit of bitter aftertaste.
 
Kyle
Kyle,
7.5 Over hyped. Straight forward bourbon, very floral. Store picks are the way to go with this one.
