Awards & Reviews:
98 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2023
"A dense, rich toffee popcorn character shines through, with complex black tea, red fruit and mint notes acting in support. The palate has wonderful depth of flavour and elegance, with a masterful balance between cask and spirit."
Platinum - Ascot Awards 2023
"Flavors of toasted brioche, hazelnut, and cedar on the palate, this whiskey drinks so mellow for its high proof. The finish is nice and peppery!"
Gold - SF World Spirits Competition 2023
"Bardstown Origin Series Bourbon focuses on identifiable flavor notes that are easy to identify, and more importantly, when combined, make for an easy-sipping bourbon overall." - Breaking Bourbon
"The aroma is soft with buttery notes of peach cobbler and sticky vanilla bean. There’s surprisingly minimal spice given all that rye in the recipe, just a hint of white pepper and some menthol. The palate is light but still expressive with toffee and chewy caramels, cinnamon RedHots, and a bit of tangerine." - Drinkhacker
"On the nose, the rye in the mashbill really makes itself felt, with significant rye spice and pepper, along with more herbal notes of mint and dill, and some apple fruitiness. These are layered atop a base that evokes cornbread and slightly nutty, brown butter biscuit. On the palate, the rye spice is quite assertive and punchy, herbal and peppery, though it’s met by sweetness evocative of malted milk balls with milk chocolate. Hot cinnamon candies give this one some heat, though there’s also a lot of “green” character. There’s some immediate sweetness up front, but to me this finishes pretty dry and on the herbal side, with a wisp of bitterness." - Paste Magazine
