The Bardstown Bourbon Company Discovery Series continues to grow, this time with Series #3, as Bardstown Bourbon Company explores bourbon blending to create something that’s greater than the sum of its individual parts. Unlike the prior 2 releases that were entirely Kentucky Bourbon, Bardstown Bourbon Company Discovery Series #3 swaps out the 14 year old Heaven Hill bourbon from Discovery 2 for 13 year Indiana bourbon, definitely from MGP.
This third release is a blend of the following bourbons, with added commentary based on known mashbills:
– 45%, 13 year old Indiana bourbon 75% corn, 21% rye, 4% barley (MGP)
– 32%, 13 year old Kentucky Bourbon 74% corn, 18% rye, 8% barley (Barton)
– 23%, 10 year old Kentucky bourbon 75% corn, 13% rye, 12% barley (Wild Turkey / Jim Beam)
I am excited that each release has continued to increase the percentage of > 10 year old bourbon in the blend. Let’s find out if the addition of MGP bourbon and even more older whiskey in the blend creates a better bourbon in this Bardstown Bourbon Company Discovery Series #3 review.
