Bardstown Bourbon Company Introduces Limited Edition Discovery Series #1

Bardstown Bourbon Company has announced the release of Discovery Series #1. This new bourbon blends four bourbons ranging from 5 and 13 years into a single release.

This new bourbon is bottled at 121.21 (60.605% alcohol) and has an MSRP of a whopping $129.99 for a 750ml bottle. For the flavor profile, this has a combination of deep tobacco and leather notes from the 11 and 13-year-old bourbons, baking spices from the 10-year-old bourbon, and bright fruit from the 5-year-old bourbon.

In discussing the new bourbon, Vice President of Manufacturing Operations, John Hargrove says: 
"We've taken the art of blending to the next level by employing a diverse group of experts to develop our products. It's a new approach from one of the most innovative whiskey distilleries in the country."
It is available in Kentucky and Indiana through Republic National Distributing Company, in California and Florida through Southern Glazers Wine and Spirits, and in Nashville and Central Tennessee through Ajax Turner Distributing Company. Unfortunately, there are no plans to bring this to the Ohio market. 

Our Take

As with most new bourbons, this brings a certain amount of excitement. However, that excitement is tempered when you get a look at the price and the fact that this isn't coming to the Ohio market. Bardstown Bourbon is one of the most interesting distilleries out there and the amount of new things they can do is going to be something to watch in the coming years.
