Bardstown Bourbon Company "Discovery Series #2" Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1461095 94 points Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark A basket of berries—blue, black, and rasp—plus brown sugar, dark chocolate, iced tea, and walnuts in syrup on the nose. The berries carry through to the palate, though it’s more chocolate-oriented, with cocoa powder, coffee bean, and peanut butter-swirled brownies. It’s full and deep, and remarkably smooth without water, though a drop or two doesn’t go amiss. The finish is full and lengthy, with chocolate, roasted walnuts, rich oak, and a hint of spice. Outstanding. (SSB, Fall 2020) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

It's hard to imagine an improvement over Discovery Series #1, but Bardstown has done it. Number two is a blend of whiskies all over 10 years old. The make up is 44% 10 year (75% corn, 13% rye, 12% barley), 39% 12 year (74% corn, 18% rye, 8% barley) and 17% 14 year old whisky (78% corn, 10% rye, 12% barley). The blend here shows more wood and intense rye spice than Series #1. It's a big whiskey in a big bottle that delivers a big value for the most discerning bourbon drinkers.

Discovery Series #1 was a huge hit with staff and customers alike. I think batch #2 will shake the bourbon industry. It's exceptional. Everything in the blend is over 10 years old. The rye in the mashbills really stands out. It's a large-and-in-charge whisky that carries a ton of spice. Yet it doesn't lake for sweetness. It's full of caramel, maple syrup, and vanilla notes. The oak is very pretty and well integrated. A sweet cherry cola profile fills the middle of the palate. It's balanced and very sippable at 122.2 proof. A supremely high quality whisky that is worth buying in multiples. You'll definitely want one or two to drink now and a couple to stash in the collection for later.
