Bardstown Bourbon "Fusion Series" #3 delivers an interesting youthfulness coupled with age and a smoothness coupled with spice.

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.

Bardstown Bourbon "Fusion Series" #3 combines 60% Bardstown Bourbon's own Spirits across two different mash bills (one 20% wheat, the other 36% rye) with 40% thirteen year-old Kentucky Bourbon that is 18% rye. The combination gives this dram an interesting youthfulness coupled with age and a smoothness coupled with spice. And it is bottled at an oddly precise 49.45% ABV — but when a Whiskey tastes this good we don’t ask too many questions.

Smartass Corner:
Bardstown Bourbon currently organizes their current releases into three categories. The "Discovery" series features sourced "discovered" Spirit. The "Fusion" series features in-house Spirit "fused" with sourced Spirit. The forthcoming "Origin" series will be all in-house production.

Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
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.
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.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
