NEW RELEASE: Bardstown Bourbon Co.’s Collaborative Series 10 Year “Plantation Rum Finish” Bourbon

Bardstown Bourbon Company Collaborative Series

{BARDSTOWN, KY} As the latest iteration of its acclaimed Collaborative series, The Bardstown Bourbon Company’s newest release brings together bourbon and Jamaican rum in partnership with Plantation Rum. This release features a 10-year-old Tennessee Bourbon finished for 22 months in Plantation Rum barrels. 

Per the brand, the resulting dram is sweet and spicy on the nose with orange peel, allspice and cinnamon that highlights banana bread with rich caramel. On the palate, apple crisp and molasses lead to a balanced finish of fruit and spice, rounding out this luxurious summer sipper that combines the best charastics of bourbon and rum.

Plantation Rum, from the West Indies Rum Distillery in Barbados, also pulls from distilleries in Jamaica, Trinidad, Peru, and Fiji where the rum is distilled and aged. The rum is then blended and finished by Maison Ferrand, a premiere Cognac maker in France. Their releases highlight the way terroir informs rum’s flavor and complexity. In this case, bourbon was finished in casks from the Xayamaca (Jamaican) expression to complement and showcase the best in both spirits.

The finished whiskey is presented at 104 proof (52 percent ABV) and offered at a suggested retail price of $159.99. It’s available in limited quantities at the Bardstown Bourbon Co. gift shop and limited retailers. For details on how to find it, visit the product locator at
