There’s not a lot of information out there on Old Bardstown Estate 101 Proof, not even on their own website. I guess all there really is to know is that it’s a straight bourbon made at the Willett Distillery in Kentucky, so assuming there’s no age statement hiding on the back label, it’s at least 4 years old. If anything, Willett is best known for the crazy desirable whiskey they sourced, much of it years ago, that now sport absurd prices north of $800 and often into the four to five figures on the secondary markets. Anyways, I digress.
I visited the Willett distillery back in 2014 when things were still a little calm and enjoyed the tour. I recall it being a relatively small operation, but I can imagine that it has grown quite a lot since then as demand has exploded. As Willett continues to grow, let’s find out how good their homemade bourbon is in this Old Bardstown Estate Bottled 101 proof bourbon review.
