usa / 98.9 proof / 750 ml / $85 (4 count)
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 Port wine casks for several more years. The taste is soft and sweet, with subtle hints of fruit, vanilla, and baking spices - a tribute to the early bourbon aristocrat, Thomas S. Moore.
