The bourbon is made from a mash of primarily corn, which is milled and mashed before being fermented with Kentucky limestone water. After distillation, it spends 10 years in new, American oak casks. Then, the bourbon is brought to 101 proof before being bottled.
Old Bardstown Estate Bottled Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has an auburn-red color, along with an intense aroma of sherry, mint, eucalyptus and copper. Notes of nutmeg, caramel, tobacco and chewy leather dominate the palate, and are complemented by hints of malted barley, cherry, and earthy minerals. The finish is medium-long, with touches of fresh herbs, oak and spice.
