This Phifer Pavitt Reserve Bourbon is the first release for Bardstown Bourbon Company (BBCo) under the brand's Collaborative Series. They partnered with Napa Valley's Phifer Pavitt Winery who supplied the cabernet sauvignon wine barrels for the bourbon to finish its aging in. BBCo took 9 year-old Tennessee straight bourbon and aged the whiskey in these French oak wine barrels for 19 months further. This limited edition release is available spring 2019.

Tasting Notes

"This is a superbly complex whiskey from Bardstown Bourbon Company, expertly tempering the heat of its high proof with oaky sweetness. Notes of cherry, almond, and white pepper come through on the palate, with lingering hints of marzipan and cinnamon. Wine barrel finishes on bourbon can be a mixed bag, but this one proves the collaboration can be worthwhile."
