Name: 1792 Ridgemont Reserve
Bottled By: The Sazerac Company

Notes: This Bourbon hits you with a scent of vanilla, oak, and allspice. At the first sip you will get a mild taste of vanilla and pepper and then a stronger taste of anise and ginger. The finish is smooth with a small amount of spice and lingering heat. Overall, this is a great Bourbon for beginners. It is priced right, generally under $20 and seems to be readily available. We enjoy this Bourbon over ice or with a splash. We often find ourselves repurchasing this one due to the price, availability, and quality.
History: This Bourbon takes its name from the year Kentucky became a state. This Bourbon was introduced in 2002 and is currently produced by Barton Brands Distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky.
