Another masterpiece in the widely adored Discovery Series.

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.

Their Discovery Series releases have been hugely successful. The Discovery Series #5 is no exception to the rule. It’s a blend of straight Bourbon Whiskeys and let’s look at the stats. There’s 31% of a 13YO Kentucky Bourbon, 25% of a 17YO Tennessee Bourbon, 25% of a 7YO Kentucky Bourbon, and 19% of a 6YO Kentucky Bourbon. Bottled at cask strength, the result of this unique combo is a smooth expression, greeting with ripe cherry, rich caramel, roasted marshmallow, and orange zest that lead to a pleasantly warming finish.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
