Barton announced today the first in its lineup of new bourbons and whiskeys.  The first one will be, according to Bourbon Buzz, the Sweet Wheat recipe.  We were all hoping for barrel proof, but this should be interesting…

BARDSTOWN, KENTUCKY (June 10, 2015) – Barton 1792 Distillery will soon debut the first ever new 1792 whiskey expression, entitled 1792 Sweet Wheat. Distilled back in 2007, the recipe features wheat as the secondary grain, rather than traditional rye.. 1792 Sweet Wheat was bottled at 91.2 proof. Bottles are expected to hit stores this summer at the suggested retail price of $32.99. Furthermore, the Distillery plans to release more new expressions of 1792 over the next few years. “We have some remarkable whiskies aging in Bardstown,” said marketing director Kris Comstock. “We’re excited to unveil them over the next several years.”
