Very Old Barton 86 Proof Bourbon Whiskey
Very Old Barton has been carefully distilled and aged for generations in Bardstown, Kentucky. This classic bourbon whiskey has a bold and rich taste that goes down smooth, just as it has for decades. The initial tantalizing sip hints at tropical fruits over the essential vanilla, oak and caramel. Your pallet is left sparkling and dry with the crisp after effects of an extraordinary bourbon. All of your sense tell you this is different.
Bourbon making can be traced back to the late 18th century in our country's infancy and stands as a uniquely American spirit known for quality and craftsmanship. Because of particularly specific and high standards, bourbon tastes different than other whiskies such as Scotch, Irish, Canadian, or Tennessee whiskey. Bourbon must be made in America and predominantly from corn. This makes bourbon unique among all other styles of whiskey. Furthermore, bourbon is never stored in used barrels. New oak barrels age bourbon slowly over time so it garners a deep amber color and rich flavors as it matures. No artificial color or additives are ever added. Remember, all bourbons are whiskeys, but not all whiskeys are bourbons.
