Bardstown Bourbon Discovery Series #3 & #4

The third edition in the Discovery Series line is somewhat less ambitious than the inaugural release with just three bourbons in the blend (42% 10 year old Kentucky, 32% 13 year old Kentucky, and 45% 13 year old Indiana). All use rye in the mashbill, although the exact proportion ranges from 12% to 21%. The nose on this bourbon is sultry with bold wood notes: incense and old carpets, hazelnuts and dark chocolate. A bit of orange zest adds some welcome brightness to contrast the intensity of the other aromas. On the palate, there’s a nice balance of brighter, sweet citrus, vanilla bean, and savory baking spice. The citrus, juicy and clove-studded character keeps things oily and rich and carries through into the long finish which sees classic toffee and caramel notes kissed with a baked orange note. 110 proof.

Not feeling the third edition...well we got the fourth in stock as well! This gem is comprised of a 13 year old Kentucky bourbon blend of 74% corn, 18% rye, and 8% malted barley; a 15 year old Kentucky bourbon blend of 78.5% corn, 13% rye, and 8.5% malted barley; and a 10 year old Kentucky bourbon made up of 75% corn, 13% rye and 12% malted barley. This blend is bottled at 115 proof.
