Bardstown The Prisoner Bourbon Finished in French Oak Red Wine Barrels
The latest collaboration release from Bardstown Bourbon Company is produced in partnership with Louisville’s Copper & Kings. The expression begins with a 9-year-old Tennessee bourbon that the distillery finished for 18 months in Destillaré Orange Curaçao barrels and bottled at 100 proof. “There’s a lot of satisfaction in developing and shaping whiskey into surprising and adventurous profiles,” said Copper & Kings founder and CEO Joe Heron. “The collaboration with kindred spirits is what truly polishes the liquid. The infusion of friendship is what brings the magic.”
Cascades of brilliant orange take the lead over a rich blend of baking spice, vanilla, and maple. The bright citrus awakens the palate and leads to a magnificent long-lasting finish with a touch of sweetness.
