Tasting Notes

The 2022 edition of BCS Gold Label Bourbon is a blend of straight bourbons distilled and aged in Indiana, Tennessee, and Kentucky, blended and bottled by Barrell Craft Spirits in Louisville, Kentucky. This non-age-statement whiskey contains bourbon aged up to 18 years in from four collections of barrels with notably distinct flavor profiles. Imagine the overlapping center of a Venn diagram composed of bourbon casks—nutty barrels with rich cherry notes complement herbaceous barrels showcasing dark chocolate that mingle with spicy, tropical fruit-forward vattings which echo the oaky coconut flavors imparted by bourbon double oaked in toasted virgin American oak casks.

Individually, these four collections of barrels characterize the breadth of bourbon profiles, and when expertly blended by the team at Barrell Craft Spirits, achieve a level of gestalt worthy of the gold label. A huge nose of tropical fruit—mango, pineapple, coconut, and passion fruit—arrives on a confectionary wave of cream soda and Nutella-smothered French toast. The telltale gun smoke and clay minerality of Tennessee bourbon is subdued by the influence of spicy oak with vanilla, cedar, pine, and maple walnut ice cream on the palate. Nougat, praline, allspice, and white chocolate round out a creamy finish with herbaceous undertones of celery, dill, and elderflower. Non-chill filtered; bottled at a cask strength of 51.1% ABV.
