A Deep Dive into Bourbon Batch 035
Bourbon Batch 035 is a testament to the expertise that goes behind the scenes at BCS. A meticulous blend of 5 to 14-year-old bourbon results in a 112.5 proof spirit that flawlessly captures the enduring allure of American straight bourbon. The team at BCS poured through hundreds of barrels to come up with a blend that promises a complex character and distinctive taste.
The primary flavors include fresh bread drizzled with honey, raw sugar snap peas, overripe bananas, tropical fruits and a touch of bark. When tasted, it starts creamy and quickly develops into a bright and fruit-forward experience, washing over the palate with a touch of floral honey and white pepper. The finish, though long and dry, has a waxing and waning sweetness accompanied by burnt sugar and chewy tannins.
Rye Batch 004: A Flavour Carousel
Accompanying the Bourbon Batch 035 is the Rye Batch 004, another statement by BCS honoring the tradition of American Rye. This batch, bottled at 112.7 proof, is an alluring blend of 4 to 14-year-old straight rye whiskies. It combines the rich history of rye with the forward-thinking perspective of BCS.
In terms of flavor, it offers an amalgamation of tropical fruit, floral honey, loamy earth, and fresh-baked bread. Initially on the palate, it starts with ripe cherries, sour green apples and transitions into honeyed flowers and root beer, offering a layered experience. The surprising finish of dark sugar syrup, molé, and mint leaves a lingering taste that rye enthusiasts will certainly appreciate.
