Fusion Series #2 Is A Blend Of 60% Of Bardstown Bourbon Company’s Three-Year-Old Wheated And High-Rye Kentucky Bourbons. Along With 40% Of 12 Year Bourbon From Kentucky To Create A Smooth, Complex Pour.

Fans of Fusion Series #1, which came out in April of 2019, will be pleased with the new offering – Batch #2 is the same proof, proportions, and recipes as its predecessor, with an additional nine months of aging. The Fusion Series #2 recipe is as follows –

  • 40 percent 12-year-old sourced Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey with a mash bill of 74 percent corn, 18 percent wheat, and 8 percent malted barley.
  • 18 percent 3-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey distilled at BBCo with a mash bill of 68 percent corn, 20 percent wheat, and 12 percent malted barley.
  • 42 percent 2 years and 10-month-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey distilled at BBCo with a mash bill of 60 percent corn, 36 percent rye, and 4 percent malted barley.

“Bardstown Bourbon has always been about progression and transparency,” says Master Distiller, Steve Nally. “Fusion Series #2 delivers the same lively fruit and spice notes of the young bourbon, combined with the long, leathery roasted nut notes of the aged product as before, but with the additional time reflected on the age statement and on the palate.”

NOSE:

Oak | Hay | Light vanilla | Light baking spice | Light summer fruits | Lacks complexity

palate:

Sweet vanilla | Yellowcake | Oak | Light bubble gum

finish:

Oak | Light leather | Light rye spice | Short & crisp

overall:

Bardstown Bourbon Company Fusion is transparent in disclosing the blend of mash bills for their bourbons, which is appreciated. With so much of the blend being 12-year-old bourbon, I expected a more complex sip. While it doesn’t have an overly youthful flavor profile. The sip certainly left me longing for a lot more, especially for an almost 100 proof bourbon.
