American independent whiskey blender Barrell Craft Spirits is out recently with its newest offering, which is triple cask finished and incorporates whiskeys aged up to 25 years.
The new BCS Gold Label Dovetail, according to those behind it, has the same “award-winning blend of whiskey finished in rum, port and Dunn Vineyards Cabernet Barrels as its classic, iconic counterpart” Dovetail, but also includes in the mix “whiskeys aged up to 25 years, resulting in a more powerful and robust blend.”
“Over the past several years, Dovetail has become a highly regarded expression within the BCS portfolio of products and the American Whiskey world,” said BCS Founder Joe Beatrice in a prepared statement. “Following the recent success of BCS Gray Label Dovetail, we decided to apply the concept of ‘Dovetail’ to our oldest, rarest stocks. We left these component whiskeys in their finishing casks even longer and included some very high proof barrels to create a blend with an intensity matched only by its nuance and layering.”
BCS Gold Label Dovetail was distilled in IN, TN and Canada and bottled in Kentucky at 140.18 proof (70.09% ABV). The new expression is now available at select retailers within the brand’s current 49 U.S. markets and online via the BCS website at www.barrellbourbon.com.
The suggested retail price for a 750ml bottle is around $500.
