Thomas S. Moore Chardonnay Cask / Straight Bourbon Finished in Chardonnay Casks
usa / 97.9 proof / 750 ml
Born in 1853 from the son of an architect and master craftsman, Thomas S. Moore surmounted countless challenges in building his bourbon empire. Moore began making whiskey at what would become Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown Kentucky in 1889. This bourbon is made by Buffalo Trace at the very same distillery with mineral-rich water from the Tom Moore spring, using Buffalo Trace’s higher rye mashbill, it is first aged in new american oak casks. Then, after many years of aging it is matured in Chardonnay wine casks for several more years. The taste is rich, with notes of citrus, tropical fruit and buttery oak - a tribute to the early bourbon aristocrat, Thomas S. Moore.
