Walking Stick Single Barrel Bourbon Review

Producer: Sazerac. Distiller: Barton 1792. ABV: 45%. No age statement. Mashbill: undisclosed. Price: $25-35.

The mystery single barrel from Sazerac! Little-known and little-discussed, apart from the fine folks at Breaking Bourbon. Apparently Barton 1792 juice. Young but flavorful — meaty, somehow — and crazily reminiscent of something I can’t place. (Tried this at the ancestral Oakstave estate, so I couldn’t do side-by-sides to pin it down.)

Pleasing corn-dominated nose and palate but fairly dry. Begging for a bit more density/higher proof. Not bad at all. Curious to revisit it.

Cheers, friends! – BO
