Double Oak Fusion Series 1 Bourbon
Please enjoy our Bardstown Bourbon Company Double Oak Fusion Review!
I had heard that this Double Oak Fusion bourbon was coming, but I didn’t know when. It turns out that it showed up at the new “Fill Your Own Bottle” station that Bardstown Bourbon Company recently debuted. This isn’t your usual double oaked story. It turns out that when Fusion 1 was bottled, there was a little snafu in calculations and some bourbon was left over. What to do? Well it was already dumped and shipped to the bottler, so it got put back in a tote and then went back to Bardstown and into a new charred oak barrel. The bourbon was left to age another 2 years in that new barrel. So how’d it come out?
Let’s taste it:
🛌 Rested for 15 minutes in a Glencairn
👉Nose: Brown sugar, burnt caramel, oak, baking spices, cinnamon, cherry and juicy fruit gum. Mild to moderate alcohol.
👉Taste: Brown sugar, rich caramel, cherry, oak
👉Finish: Burnt caramel, oak, some char, honey; fruit continues well into the finish. Mild to moderate burn. Long finish.
The extra age mellows the Fusion 1 a bit and adds some rich full flavors. The second barrel magnifies the original barrel flavors, rather than adding the flavors ones sees when the second barrel is heavily toasted, as some distilleries do for their double oak bourbons.
Regardless of the methods used, this is a very good bourbon. I have been a fan of Fusion from the start, and I really like it with the extra barrel aging. Are you a Fusion fan? I won’t ask if you’ve had this one since there is not much of it around, but if you have, let me know what you think of it! Cheers!🥃
