Bardstown Origin Series Rye

Nose

Nougat, marzipan, aged oak, barrel char, rye spice, leather aromas are interlaced with more grounded notes.

Palate

The palate reveals rye grain, charred oak, leather, baking chocolate, Mexican chocolate, dried figs, and light Bing cherries.

Finish

The sip ends with bold rye spice, lightly dried oak, Mexican chocolate, subtle leather, and lingering heat.

Overall

Bardstown Origin Series Rye is full of rich flavors. Their spin on the classic 95/5 rye mashbill produces a sweet nose with touches of grounded notes. On the palate, figs and Bing cherries combine with various chocolate notes to highlight this sip. The finish has bold rye spice and is the least dynamic part of this whiskey, yet it still ends things off well. A solid first in-house distilled rye for Bardstown, this is sure to please rye drinkers
