overall

A blend of double digit aged Kentucky bourbons over 120 proof is a rarity nowadays. Discovery Series #2 doesn’t disappoint for those who like higher aged, higher proof bourbons. The age shows through with oak being a dominant trait. However, it’s nicely balanced by more subtle classic sweeter flavors which allow the sip to produce a more distinguished well-rounded flavor profile.
