Bardstown Bourbon Co. will release a second iteration of the Collaborative Series with leading French Armagnac house Château de Laubade on Friday, September 9, 2022.
The 2022 Château de Laubade Armagnac release includes a blend of 12-year Kentucky and 10-year Tennessee bourbon, finished in Laubade Armagnac casks for 16 months.
This custom bourbon blend accentuates the nuanced flavors from each barrel. The finishing casks are aged from 16 – 24 months in different warehouse locations, bringing contrast to wood extraction. Complexity, balance, and thoughtful innovation make this release reminiscent of the award-winning first release while looking ahead to a new sipping experience.
The release is evidence of a continued, strong creative partnership between Callaway and Château de Laubade’ Owner and Famille Lesgourgues Directeur Général, Denis Lesgourgues.
On the nose, baked pear with nutmeg, cinnamon, and sage rests on toffee, brown sugar, and almond. The palate follows with vanilla bean, rich oak, and golden raisin combined to create an outstanding finish of refined flavor.
The Château de Laubade Armagnac Collaborative Series release is presented at 107 proof (53.5% ABV) and offered at an SRP of $159.99. Roughly 2,700 9L cases of the finished bourbon will be available through the Bardstown Bourbon Co. gift shop, at retailers in 20 states, and at Seelbachs.com.
