Tasting Notes

A forgotten gem in the formidable Sazerac stable of American spirits, Very Old Barton is a relic of a different golden age of bourbon when the whiskey was always good and unbelievably affordable.

Staff Pick Notes

"Pssst...down here on the bottom shelf. I know my label is old fashioned and there's a screw cap on my neck, but it's about what's underneath, right?" Once poured into your low ball glass you'll find the six-year-old Barton takes modern whiskies (that are two to three times more expensive) to school. It starts with a refreshing bouquet of mint, sawed wood, and spicy rye. The palate follows with roasted corn, cloves, and spearmint. With a long and healthy finish, this whiskey far exceeds its low price. The Very Old Barton is from a golden age of whiskey when every bottle was inexpensive and of good quality. Today it's a humble treasure in a whiskey world of big names and bigger prices.
