An intriguing finish in the Bourbon category, executed right.

Founded in 1874 in Bardstown, Kentucky, The Barton 1792 Distillery has been around for a while and it’s changed many-a hand and many-a name. Right from the start, Tom Moore was an employee there and he eventually bought the distillery and named it Morton Spring Distillery. Then, he sold it to a group of outside investors. He stayed as an employee at the shop, but then, he bought the lot next door to open a brand new competing distillery. Eventually, he was able to buy Morton Spring Distillery once again and merge the two operations, building an innovative Whiskey empire. He renamed the combined operation “The Thomas Moore Distillery”. After the Prohibition, he sold the property and it was bought and sold a few more times. Sazerac bought it in 2009 and decided to rechristen the entire operation “The Barton 1792 Distillery.” Full circle.

Thomas S. Moore Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Chardonnay Casks pays homage to the Bourbon pioneer that was making the juice at the distillery back in 1874. It’s made from Barton 1792 Bourbon with a high rye mash bill that’s first aged for at least 5 years in new American oak and then finished in Chardonnay casks for a couple of extra years. Definitely not your ordinary Bourbon finish, but we’re absolutely here for it. It’s rich and super buttery with flavors of citrus, tropical fruit, and oak.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
