Back in April, we announced the addition of the first two Bardstown Bourbon Co. bourbon's. Since then, the Bardstown releases have gone on to win multiple awards as well as become a staple in my bourbon cabinet! They've now released the second batch of Both Fusion and Discovery. Each batch is 7-months to 1-year older than the original version.
If you're unfamiliar with Bardstown Bourbon Co. check out this interview I did with their master distiller Steve Nally. Here are the details:
|Bardstown Bourbon Company Discovery Series #2|
The unifying concept in Discovery Series #2 is a 12-year-old Kentucky bourbon combined with light accents of older and younger Kentucky bourbons.
Layered maple, a burst of cinnamon, and ripe pair on top of aged leather comprise this complex aroma. A warm palate reveals tannic oak embedded in rich flavor. A remarkable, enduring finish rounds out our premier bourbon blend.
- 17% 14-year Kentuck bourbon
- 39% 12-year Kentuck bourbon
- 44% 10-year Kentucky bourbon
Proof: 121.21 proof
|Bardstown Bourbon Company Fusion Series #2|
Fusion Series #2 is a blend of 60% of Bardstown Bourbon Company’s three-year-old wheated and high-rye Kentucky bourbons along with 40% of 12-year bourbon from Kentucky to create a smooth, complex pour.
The fusion between youthful and aged bourbon becomes immediately apparent on the nose. Green apple with honey joins roasted nuts and caramel. These disparate profiles are unified on the first sip, coating the palate and finishing with extraordinary balance.

- 18% Bardstown Bourbon Company 3-year wheated bourbon
