The good folks over at the Bardstown Bourbon Company are back. They have released the newest versions of its Fusion and Discovery Series #2 products. Back in April, the brand unveiled its Fusion Series #1, followed by the launch of Discovery Series #1 in June. Much like it’s predecessor, Fusion Series #2 uses 60% of Bardstown Bourbon Company’s own wheat and high-rye bourbons, blended with a 12-year-old sourced Kentucky bourbon to create a smooth, complex pour. The aged result offers a unique nose, rich palate, and lasting finish. Master Distiller, Steve Nally stated: “Bardstown Bourbon has always been about progression and transparency.” He went on to add, “Fusion Series #2 delivers the same lively fruit and spice notes of the young bourbon, combined with the long, leathery roasted nut notes of the aged product as before, but with the additional time reflected on the age statement and on the palate.”
Discovery Series #2 continues to honor Bardstown Bourbon Company’s traditional art of blending. This first release set a high bar for the distilling, culinary, and beverage team members who work together on the modern approach to product development. The recipe includes three new sourced Kentucky bourbons, with a mash bill of 44% 10-year-old bourbon, 39% 12-year-old bourbon, and 17% 14-year-old bourbon. This makes for a richer finish with a more complex result. Chief Operating Officer, John Hargrove spoke on it. He stated: “We continue to use the same process of multiple teams collaborating to land on such unique blends. Discovery reflects the diverse background of passionate bourbon experts involved in deriving our products.” Mr. Hargrove added, “You’ve got some real Kentucky classics making up this blend which delivers some soft notes of oak and leather, with multiple layers of depth and complexity.”
