Bardstown Bourbon Company Collaborative Series: Foursquare

Bardstown Bourbon Company’s Collaborative Series has produced some interesting and creative finished whiskeys over the past few years. In 2022, they released a 10 year old Tennessee bourbon finished for 23 months in Plantation Rum barrels. This was followed up in 2023 with a Foursquare Rum barrel-finished whiskey.

Nose

The nose offers a range of sweet notes, including brown sugar, dark maple syrup, toasted cinnamon sticks, nougat, molasses and vanilla.

Palate

The palate is dominated by brown sugar, cola syrup, molasses and caramel, with a hint of barrel char.

Finish

The finish is a combination of molasses, aged oak, black pepper, stewed fruit and a slight dryness that lingers.

Overall

This is a multi-layered whiskey thanks to its Foursquare Rum barrel influence, rye, and Tennessee bourbon base. There is an interesting interplay between the rum notes, rye spice, and the unique Foursquare signature taste. While the rum notes are present, they are not overpowering, making this a balanced and dynamic whiskey. The finish is slightly lacking when compared to the rest of the sip, but overall this is an enjoyable and distinctive whiskey.
