Description

Aroma

The initial nose throws a curveball.  Unlike the usual sweetness of vanilla or caramel in bourbon, Gold Bar Black opens with a note of smoke.  Imagine the comforting scent of a crackling campfire or a hint of pipe tobacco.  This smokiness is intriguing and sets the stage for a bold experience.  However, beneath the smoke, a subtle sweetness emerges.  Think of a touch of vanilla bean or maybe even a whisper of brown sugar.  This sweetness helps balance the smokiness and adds a touch of complexity to the aroma.

Palate

The first sip confirms the boldness promised by the aroma.  The smoke flavor translates beautifully onto the palate, coating your tongue with a gentle smokiness that isn’t overwhelming.  Imagine taking a bite of grilled meat with a hint of smoke infusion.  This smokiness is balanced beautifully by a wave of spice.  Think of a kick of rye spice, like the peppery character rye whiskey is known for.  This spice adds depth and warmth to the experience, preventing the smokiness from becoming monotonous.

Midpalate

As the whiskey lingers on your tongue, you might be surprised by a delightful note of creamy fruit.  This isn’t the typical fruitiness found in some bourbons.  Instead, imagine a hint of vanilla bean adding a touch of creamy sweetness.  There might also be a fleeting note of stone fruit like apricot or peach.  This unexpected fruitiness is a delightful surprise and adds a layer of complexity to the overall flavor profile.  It also helps cut through the smokiness and spice, keeping the experience interesting.

Finish

The finish of Gold Bar Black Double Cask Bourbon is long and warming, ensuring a satisfying conclusion.  The smoke character remains noticeable, but it’s balanced by the lingering spice.  Imagine a touch of black pepper or a hint of cinnamon warming your throat.  The fruity notes might also make a final appearance, leaving a subtle sweetness on your tongue.  A touch of oak from the aging barrels might emerge as well, adding a dry and slightly tannic element to the finish.
