overall

Bardstown Bourbon Company is transparent in disclosing the blend of mashbills for their bourbons, which is appreciated. With so much of the blend being 12 year old bourbon, I expected a more complex sip. Instead, I was greeted with a light and subtly sweet flavor profile that is heavily influenced by the younger Bardstown distillate. While it doesn’t have an overly youthful flavor profile, the sip certainly left me longing for a lot more, especially for an almost 100 proof bourbon.
