This is how you blend a Bourbon.

Bardstown Bourbon Company is an amazing thing to behold. It is a remarkable facility recently expanded to produce six million proof gallons of Spirit per year — making it one of the largest distilleries in the world. But it is also a gleaming, modern building with sharp edges, having some of the most advanced technology for great Whisky-making.

Founded in 2013 with production hitting full stride in 2015, they started by filling their rickhouses with sourced Spirits to support their construction. With massive amounts of product pre-sold out into the future, they are the central production for dozens of famous brands — including Jefferson’s, High West, James E. Pepper, and many more. But they carve out a selection to release under their own brand as well.

To say that the Discovery Series' first 3 releases have been successful would be an understatement. The Discovery Series #4 has a lot in common with those first 3, being a blend of 3 sourced Kentucky Bourbons that have been aged to perfection separately: a high-rye 13YO (74% corn, 18% rye, 8% malted barley), a 15YO (78.5% corn, 13% rye, and 8.5% malted barley), and a 10YO (75% corn, 13% rye, and 12% malted barley). It's all bottled at a serious 115 proof, as well. That's a lot of numbers, but you should really let the juice speak for itself with its well-aged, smooth, and unique sipping goodness.

Appearance / Color
Dark Mahogany

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Caramel and baking spices are in there with plenty of oak, as expected of the well-aged juices inside. There's dried fruit in the form of figs & dates with a dash of citrus as well.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The nose gives way to surprisingly fruity notes that are in perfect harmony with the spice. A touch of peach, dark chocolate, and a hint of nuttiness make for a complex dram.

Finish
The finish is long-lasting with a beautiful balance of lingering notes and a touch of warmth.

Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
