Overall

With the continued popularity of wine finished bourbon, Barton 1792 Distillery expands their portfolio with the introduction of Thomas S. Moore, a line centered on cask finished whiskeys. Of the many wine finished bourbons on the market, Cabernet Sauvignon finished bourbons are far less common. It’s a bit ironic given the dark fruit flavor profile of cabernet sauvignon wine pairs well with bourbon's typical flavor profile. That is on display with this Thomas S. Moore release, as the palate takes to the cask finish quite well. Unfortunately, the finish fumbles rather dramatically as it’s overrun with tannic, dry, and all-around conflicting flavors. These flavors thankfully diminish the more you sip, but never fully dissipates and drags down the rather deserving nose and palate.
