Thomas S. Moore Cabernet Sauvignon Cask Finish - Review


Thomas S. Moore - Extended Cask Finish

Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Cabernet Sauvignon Casks

NAS - No Age Statement

Barton 1792 Distillery - Bardstown, Kentucky

95.3 Proof

Mash Bill: Undisclosed

Retail Price: $70

Poured Neat in a Glencairn

Color: Dark Amber

Nose: That Cabernet grape smell immediately hits my nose and tingles the senses. Some oak and creamy vanilla move forward the more it's swirled and opened.

Palate: A creamy delight! The Cab cask takes me on a bit of a journey. The caramel and vanilla is countered each sip with the bold dark red grape and an incredible tannic oak taste. This repeats with each sip.

Finish: Without a doubt, one of the most mellow and pleasant finishes I've come across in a bourbon in quite some time. The oily coating is enjoyable and the linger lasts a nice bit of time.

Overall: Without having researched much about this new line from Barton 1792, I must say, I am quite impressed. I believe the proof is exactly where it should be and the entire start-to-finish is an experience. The Cab finish is just the icing on the cake.
