Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Hardin's Creek 2-Year Bourbon sports a youthful amber hue that belies its robust flavor profile. The liquid forms medium legs on the glass, suggesting a balanced body and mouthfeel.
Despite its relative youth, this bourbon presents a complex and inviting nose. Expect a lively bouquet of fresh corn, green apple, and vanilla, underscored by a layer of oak and a hint of spice—perhaps a nod to its American heritage and the new charred oak barrels used in maturation.
Upon the first sip, Hardin's Creek delivers a melody of flavors far beyond its years. A pronounced sweetness of honey and caramel is immediately followed by a wave of orchard fruits—think apple and pear. This fruitiness is then balanced by subtle but unmistakable rye spice and a dash of pepper, culminating in an impressively complex experience.
The finish is medium-long, characterized by lingering notes of caramel and a resurgence of the initial fruitiness, finally resolving into a gentle warmth and a touch of oak.
Considering its ABV, the bourbon provides a surprisingly smooth and rounded mouthfeel, with the flavors neatly enveloping the palate without overwhelming it.
