Discovery Series #10 by Bardstown Bourbon Company is a reminder that even though the company produces in-house distilled whiskeys, they clearly have what it takes to blend a well rounded sourced whiskey as well.

Bardstown Bourbon Company has always been known for its blending capabilities. While the company has started to release its in-house distillate Origin Series, they continue to produce new Discovery Series releases. With release #10, the company has blended predominantly Kentucky bourbon with 10% bourbon from Georgie and a head-scratching 2% from Tennessee. More information can be found in the company’s press release.

The sip opens with highlights of sweeter scents, with powdered sugar and vanilla cream being joined by a supporting cast of maple candy and glazed donuts. It’s a pleasant opening, but the sip truly takes off when it comes to the palate. A variety of flavors burst forward and propels this sip into a clearly intriguing territory, with prominent doses of vanilla cream, baking spices, cinnamon powder, and dried cherries taking turns dominating one another. My biggest complaint with the sip is its finish, which ends on more traditional dry and spice notes, with only a flash of dried dark fruits adding intrigue. These flavors combine to form an overly dry finish which takes away from some of the goodwill that the palate builds up. Overall, this is another great addition to the Bardstown Discovery Series, which is quickly becoming a series that delivers solid poor after solid pour.
