Bardstown Fusion Bourbon 97.9 ° 750ml
Nose: The nuttiness of the nose is immediately noticeable. Behind it are notes of yogurt covered raisins, prunes and figs, kind of like a mincemeat pie. Baking spices are fragrant and concentrated. Warm notes of vanilla cappuccino and some toasted oak pull back the curtain a bit and reveal the age.
Palate: I’m picking up a strong grape juice influence which is undoubtedly the cognac cask coming into play. Other fruity flavors include stewed prunes and cherry tartlets, both unusual to find in Beam or Heaven Hill products. But after that, the bourbon flavors really shine with notes of Flan, peanut brittle, brown sugar, cinnamon stick, clove and toasted nuts. Everything seems to jibe well and comes off as interesting, unique and very flavorful.
Finish: The finish gets a bit spicy with sharp spices and lots of cinnamon. Dark fruits like raisins, date syrup, figs, prunes and tart cherries coat your tongue in thick sweetness.Other lingering flavors like leather, peanut brittle and toasted nuts remind you that this is a bourbon and not a high proofed Cognac.
