    Cash bar? Are you sure it was a Portuguese wedding?

That said, there is still something very Barton about it, probably yeast or warehouse related.
    Interesting. Being a Ten High straight fan, multiple people have suggested that I try 1792. BUT if it's a different mashbill, I might not like it as much.

    It still tastes like a Barton product, for what it's worth.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    I didn't take it off my list, it's just a notch or two lower now.

    I just looked at the whiskey tree, and it's not completely clear to me which mashbill was used for Ten High.

    I am late to this, but 1792 has to be a high rye mashbill, not to sure on it being high malt. I am told this stuff is 60 corn, 30 rye, 10 malt. It is the mashbill they used to use for straight Kentucky Gentleman, and Tom Moore. But they can make more money with 1792 and KY gentleman is all a blend now, and I do not know about Tom Moore. The same guy who informed me on this, and should know, said Barton used to make about 4 rye mashbills. One was 100 percent rye, unmalted, and one was 100 percent rye malt. Went into blends I imagine.
