Bardstown Discovery Series #4 Straight Bourbon
Bardstown's fourth release in their ever-impressive sourced Discovery Series blends together three Kentucky bourbons to create a uniform but also dynamic bottle of whiskey that highlights the fledgling distillery's skill as blenders. 55% of the blend is 13 year old bourbon with a mashbill of 74% corn, 18% rye, and 8% malted barley. 37% of the blend is 15 years old, with 78.5% corn, 13% rye, and 8.5% malted barley. The last 8% is 10 year old bourbon made of 75% corn, 13% rye, and 12% malted barley.
Waves of caramel and baking spice meet depths of oak and smoke. On the palate, lively bursts of fruit and spice evolve into an enduring, balanced finish. Dried figs and dates round out this complex, aged Kentucky bourbon. Bottled at 57.5% abv.
