    New Barton Bourbons

    Sazerac got label approval for a new line of bourbons that appear to be from Barton. The new line is called "1792" and includes five expressions: a small batch, a single barrel, a wheater, a high rye recipe and a 125 proof bourbon. They are all NAS.

    Just call it something else and raise the price. That's how restaurants can charge more for polenta than grits.

    Re: New Barton Bourbons

    I give em credit for using the term "full proof" - that's smart. Don't have to bother with batches and proof changes constantly, but still "feels like" barrel proof (and probably pretty darn close to it at 125). From an operational process efficiency perspective, I have to admire it (and if it isn't outrageous, I'll probably buy one just to try).

    Depending FIRST on the prices for these offerings, I may (or may not) try some,
    though the NAS really gives me a good deal of pause, ....unless the prices are really reasonable.

    I'll give them a go, well at least one of each. Guessing they'll start at $30 and go up to $50 but that may be wishful thinking on my part.

    I'll definitely be in for these. NAS doesn't turn me off; there have been plenty of great releases combining order and younger whiskey, and these might well have whiskey in them that is older than 6. I remember reading that Barton was already distilling wheater at the time of the Sazerac purchase.

    I agree Gary, the term full proof is smart.

    I wonder if they are dropping the ridgemont reserve 1792 product and using this EH Taylor like product line.
