Bardstown Bourbon "Goose Island Collaboration" Blended Whiskey
750 ml, 50% ABV (100 Proof), this is a blend of whiskies finished in Goose Island Stout barrels
"Beer and whiskey enthusiasts rejoice: Bardstown Bourbon Company announced on Wednesday that as part of its wildly popular collaboration with the Chicago brewery Goose Island, the brands would be launching a blended Kentucky Bourbon finished in Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout barrels.
Bardstown Bourbon’s release is a blend of 6- and 7-year Kentucky bourbons aged for an extra year in freshly emptied Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout barrels. The barrels were not rinsed before housing the bourbon, so the spirit could intermingle with the beer. The bourbon was then married with a 9-year-old Kentucky bourbon, which the brand claims adds flavors of chocolate malt and dried cherry.
56% of the blend was composed of the 7-year-old bourbon, 26% was composed of the 6-year-old bourbon, and 18% housed the 9-year-old bourbon.
“Goose Island is the perennial trailblazer of craft brewing and a perfect partner for collaboration,” said VP of Product Development of Bardstown Bourbon Co., Dan Callaway according to the news release. “I adore their Bourbon County Brand Stout and jumped at the opportunity to explore flavor together. This bourbon accentuates the depth of stout while maintaining beautiful fruit, malt and honey. A true team effort!”" Whiskey Raiders
