  • The unique offerings of Hardin’s Creek
  • The distinct flavor profiles of their releases
  • The story behind each release

I. The Unique Offerings of Hardin’s Creek

Hardin’s Creek is not just a bourbon; it's a journey through time and taste. Each release is a testament to the brand's commitment to quality and innovation. Their bourbons are aged at their three Kentucky campuses, each imparting its unique terroir to the liquid, resulting in three distinct expressions from a single mashbill.

II. The Distinct Flavor Profiles

A. Clermont

The current release from Hardin’s Creek Clermont, is a rich amber bourbon with a palate that leads with caramelized oak, followed by brown spices and hints of seasoned leather. The nose is a delightful blend of burnt sugar, matured toasted oak, and sweet vanilla, culminating in a smooth, sweet finish with lingering warmth.

B. Col. James B. Beam

One of their past releases, Hardin's Creek Col. James B. Beam, is an amber gold bourbon with deep and complex flavors of vanilla, nuts, and oak. The nose is robust with vanilla and caramel notes, leading to a long and full finish.

C. Jacob's Well

Hardin's Creek Jacob's Well, another past release, is a rich amber bourbon with burgundy highlights. The palate is a marriage of forward oak and char with stone fruits, while the nose offers sweet vanilla and caramel with hints of rich oak. The finish is smooth with lingering notes of vanilla and brown sweets.

III. The Story Behind Each Release

Each release from Hardin’s Creek carries a unique story, reflecting the specific conditions and processes used in its creation. For instance, the Clermont release was aged in a rack house swathed by thick woodland, taking on a warmth that may as well have come from the strong Kentucky sun itself. The Col. James B. Beam release, on the other hand, used a longer fermentation process and was taken off the still at a lower distillation proof, meaning it only needed to age 2 years to achieve a depth of flavor unmatched even by more mature bourbons.
