Here we have it – Bardstown Bourbon Company Discovery Series 4. It seems like only yesterday that Discovery 3 (great bourbon by the way), was released. As each Discovery release is a different blend of bourbons, Discovery 4 goes in yet another direction from the prior 3 releases. While Discovery Series 3 changed it up by including 13 year old MGP Indiana bourbon, Discovery 4 returns to all Kentucky bourbon and cranks up the ratio of 13+ year old Bourbon. 17% of Discovery 2 was over 13 years old (14 year old Heaven Hill), 77% of Discovery 3 was 13 years old (32% Barton, 45% MGP), and Discovery 4 takes it to another level with 92% of the blend being at least 13 years old, adding 15 year old Kentucky bourbon from an unconfirmed source (although likely from Jim Beam based on what I’ve seen out in the internet).
On that note, here’s a breakdown of the blend:
– 55% 13 year old Kentucky bourbon, 74% corn, 18% rye, 8% barley (Barton)
– 37% 15 year Kentucky bourbon 78.5% corn, 13% rye, 8.5% barley, (probably Jim Beam)
– 8% 10 year Kentucky bourbon 75% corn, 13% rye, 12% malted barley, (my best guess is Wild Turkey)
Let’s kick off this Bardstown Bourbon Company Discovery Series 4 review.
