I find the 1792 full proof undrinkable. Way too hot.

Jim Murray thinks you’re a wuss..... 

Ok score chaser. Have you actually had it? I've poured it to multiple friends that agreed. Tried to use in cocktails as no one wants to drink it and it Didn't even make a good old fashioned. So many better bourbons out there 

Yes.  I like it.  Don’t think it’s the best in the world, but it’s a far cry from undrinkable.  

Ask our mutual friend how many 1792 FP store picks he has bunkered.......

It's ok to like different things. I prefer my bourbon well under 100 proof. Don't like Pappy 10 for same reason

You should’ve just stated that outright, rather than immediately start out trying to justify an opinion/criticism that isn’t shared by a lot of folks who drink bourbon.  I’ve always enjoyed a variety of high proof whiskeys and whiskies neat, and that’s certainly not an outlier amongst many aficionados.
