BX2i has a component age statement of 30% 5 year 25% 10 year 20% 14 year and 25% 16 year bourbons. It shows a pronounced chocolaty and chalky, Indiana Bourbon influence.
The Barrell Private Release Bourbon series is an exercise in micro-blending and variations on a theme. We select bourbons of four different ages and blend them into multiple recipes. Each blend number has its own ratios, printed on the label and is constructed in its own ex-bourbon barrel. With each release, a new set of base bourbons will be selected, so every recipe is only made once.
The BCS blending team believes that blending can make bourbons that span the greatest spectrum of flavour. The Private Release program allows an entirely new set of options for those looking for unique and exclusive products.
Each blend is a marriage of Bourbons from Kentucky, Tennessee, and Indiana, and is constructed from a volumetric recipe based on a component age statement.
