The latest release from Bardstown Bourbon Co.'s Discovery line, Discovery #10 is a blend of five bourbons from Kentucky, Georgia and Tennessee. About 3,500 cases of this release are available at a suggested retail price of $139.99.
Bold toffee and praline, there's a whole lot of rich sweetness on the nose. Spice trickles in after a couple moments, but it's a sweet storm up front.
The palate is sweet as well, caramels, pralines, sweet peanut brittle and toffee abound. There's moderate oak presence, leaning lighter than I'd have expected but it works well. Some complexity is lost here but if you're a fan of dessert that's balanced nicely with tannin - this is your release.
Long finish, moderate tannin and a bounty of sweet cream, salted caramel, a touch of tobacco and nougat. Lovely and long, it's an opulent finish.
I'll be darned if Series #10 isn't a winner, and a pretty unique chapter in their collection as well. This one's worth a pick up - if you can find it.
