I had tried 1792 about two years ago and while I thought it was a perfectly fine bourbon I really had no interest in obtaining another bottle. I then purchased a bottle about 3 weeks ago and my opinion has really changed. I find it an outstanding bourbon, with great balance and a nice finish, not real long but very pleasing. I am not sure if the quality of the bourbon has increased or my taste buds are more experienced from trying a multitude of bourbons over the last 2 years (this is the time frame when I really got into bourbons). For the price I believe it is one of the best values out there and would highly recommend it.
