Containing 56% of Bardstown's own 3yr stock 75/21/4 mashbill, 14% of their own 3yr 75/15/10 stock and 30% 11yr Kentucky distillate from an undisclosed distillery, this is the 6th chapter of Bardstown Bourbon Company's Fusion release. Set to combine older, existing stocks from legacy distilleries and new, younger stocks from Bardstown Bourbon Company, the whiskey is truly a fusion in every sense of the word. Is it a winner? Let's dive in.
Peaches and cream, honey, vanilla bean and a touch of cinnamon stick. Enticing, fruity, full of character with a touch of spice.
Moderate mouthfeel. Lots of honey, sweet pecan, cinnamon, clove, light on the oak and a touch spirit-y but delicious and easy drinking. With the diversity in ages, I wondered how the mouthfeel and viscosity would shake out here, but so far so food.
Short to medium finish, apples pie, peaches and cream, touch of honey and vanilla bean. If you like a shorter, sweeter, more silky finish, this will hit home well.
Fusion #6 from Bardstown Bourbon is a deliciously easy sipper that’s handily following in the Discovery bottling's steps.
