Fusion Series # 5
The Fusion Series celebrates the blending of Bardstown’s estate-made three and four-year-old bourbons with sourced, 11-year-old Kentucky bourbon. The first release of Fusion made Whisky Advocate’s ‘Top 20 Whiskies of 2019’ (#11; #5 rated bourbon) in the world and won Gold at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Fusion #5 features an exemplary 11-year-old sourced bourbon infused with two of Bardstown Bourbon’s own mash bills. The blend brings forward the flavors of rich bread pudding and caramelized plantains with a touch of orange zest, driving a taste of dark chocolate and bing cherries to the palette to create the perfect blend for a summer sip or cocktail.
Discovery Series # 5
The Discovery Series honors the art of blending old and rare bourbons that create depth and complexity, allowing drinkers to discover a new tasting note in each sip. The newest iteration is said to have flavors of ripe, vibrant cherries over rich caramel and roasted marshmallow, accented by a touch of orange zest. The smooth mouth feels provide a wonderfully warming finish in what is sure to be another must-have Discovery release.
“Fusion and Discovery Series #5 are truly some of our most unique blends yet and we are thrilled to finally bring them to the shelves,” Master Distiller Steve Nally tells BourbonBlog.com. “We continue to introduce more of our own mashbills into the blend, which is evident in this newest release.”
“Similar to the past iterations of Fusion and Discovery Series, we count on a diverse group of experts to assist in the development of our products,” said Vice President of Manufacturing Operations, John Hargrove.
