Hardin's Creek - Frankfort 17 Year Bourbon Kentucky Series
ge statement of 204 months, which translates to exactly 17 years. Each release in the series will carry the same age statement and will be bottled at 110 proof.
The bourbon opens with heavy rye spice layered on top of aged oak. Lying beneath is a steady flow of cinnamon and vanilla spice mix along with a scent of baked pie crust. Furthermore, a thin vein of summer fruits flows through. The bourbon's proof is evident and shines through, but isn’t distracting. It’s a nice balanced opening to the sip that is full of defined and very enjoyable scents.
Bright vanilla and cinnamon sticks pop up front and are quickly followed by cinnamon spice and a baking spice mix. Dried notes of charred oak and tobacco align with a light leather highlighting the bourbon's age. Exploring further pulls in an inkling of burnt caramel and dried raisins and the same baked pie crust found in the nose. Taken as a whole, these flavors work hand in hand to create a great midpoint for the sip that keeps drawing you back to experience them again and again.
A burst of cinnamon spice starts off the finish up front, and is joined by light graham cracker. Additional notes of dried oak, leather, and vanilla spice appear adding depth. Throughout all of this, rye spice and heat continually build, contributing to the overall character of the finish. As flavors drop off, the bourbon ends on a lingering peppery rye spice note resting on top of dried oak. Just as the bourbon started, the finish provides a very enjoyable way to end the sip.
