An April 2023 release from Bardstown Bourbon Co., this is a blend of 7-year-old rye and 17-year-old bourbon. The blend was aged for 23 months in Foursquare Rum barrels on the top floor of Bardstown Bourbon Co.'s rickhouse G.
Bold and rich, full of maple, red berries, satisfying sweet cream and a lack of oak. Sweet oak, baking spice, a big fudge and root beer sweetness pops on the nose.
Rich on the palate with a prickle of heat, but the rum is really clear on this one. Maple, brown sugar, rich oak, pepper and a touch of tobacco and funk. It’s half bourbon, half rum, and it just works. It’s a heavy finish but not too heavy.
Long. Maple sweetness reigns supreme with a touch of ginger, oak, root beer and pleasant, light plum.
I like this. Rum finishes are tricky, and Bardstown (and Foursquare) have just what it takes.
