Revolutionary aristocrat brought back to life.

Between the two wars, there was a man with a vision in Versailles. The two wars were the American Revolution and the War of 1812, this Versailles was in Kentucky, and the visionary in question was Elijah Pepper. He was a Bourbon distiller who passed his family business to his son and grandson. The latter one was James E. Pepper, a colonel, a Bourbon aristocrat, and the creator of the Old Fashioned cocktail. His distillery was a powerhouse until 1958, when the entire industry fell on its knees.

But the Old 1776 Whiskey, a favorite of Andrew Jackson and Ulysses S. Grant, could not lay in oblivion forever, because good things tend to come back. Amir Peay, an entrepreneur from Georgetown decided to re-found the historic James E. Pepper distillery and revive the brand. He spent years researching and analyzing the recipes and preserved bottles, and in 2008, the legend was back.

The 1776 Straight Bourbonis made from corn, malted barley and rye, mixed carefully in the ratios written down in a letter by Pepper himself. After they distil the Bourbon, they put it in virgin American oak casks and age it for at least five years. When one opens this precious bottle, hits of vanilla and caramel come through, accompanied by the notes of oak and spices. Peay used traditional methods championed by Pepper while restoring this Bourbon, which brought him a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2013. And rightfully so.

I bought this as a gift to my brother who is a spirits connoisseur and he couldn't stop thanking me for selecting such an excellent spirit for him to imbibe. That let me know that if you want to get the party started right, THIS is how you do it!

Niko,
There is a bite to it but once you get past that there is also some fine notes hidden there. It's like that old grumpy man next door cussing and cursing at you as go by his porch almost stepping on his lawn but the same night he is watering his roses at the backyard.

Mikiko,
Don’t let this bourbon’s high proof scare you. For a young bourbon it has a smooth finish. Not too much depth but very impressive for the price. Can’t wait to try the rye next!
 
Max

This is a nicely smooth, spicy bourbon. Sweet, heavy caramel on the tongue with a spicy clean finish.

Karen
Karen,
I love this so much! I am not a huge fan of most Whiskey but my husband gave me a drink of a sample that we had and I was amazed at how smooth. I get the caramel more than anything and would definitely buy again and again!

Steven,
Tried the Rye Whiskey by 1776 and couldn't wait to try the Bourbon. I was a bit let down. I think this will work as a mixer bourbon, but not something I'd drink neat. It's not as smooth as I'd like, and there's less caramel note than what I was lead to believe.

Chance,
TONS of flavor, it's not not very easy going down.

SCOTT,
Solid bourbon, not real complex, but smooth and very forward flavor. Will try it in cocktails, but do enjoy it neat.

Nice bourbon. Solid on it's own but normally used for cocktails for which it is excellent
 
Martin
Martin,
solid especially at this price point, would purchase again, nice flavor but a bit of a bite, adding over ice seemed to make it smoother than straight.
 
Steven
Steven,
I had the rye and loved it, so I purchased their Bourbon Whiskey thinking I'd love it because I love bourbon. It wasn't as smooth as I was anticipating, and the notes weren't as sweet as the spiral indicates. Not bad, but nothing to write home about. Sticking with my Blanton's.
 
Victor
Victor,
Extremely good spirit. Heavy notes of sweet caramel and spicy rye. Very smooth finish.

Hot, short finish, long burn
 
Ivan
Ivan,
Super spicy, which I usually like but it doesn't sit on ur tongue as smoothly as others. I would like it better if it was a bit sweeter. It's 100 proof so it is strong. Take ur time, I added one ice cube, helped a lot.
