Proof66 Notes

California Gold is, without questions, a spirit that defies categorization. It appears to be a base of sugarcane (which would imply a rum taste that supports their marketing claim of "rich Caribbean style"), barley (which would imply a malt whiskey profile), and corn (which brings in some notion of American bourbon), all aged for 5 months in charred 15-gallon (smaller than the typical ~50 gallon barrels to promote greater contact with wood) American oak and bottled at 100 proof. The aging in particular takes away from the world of clear vodka-style spirits and into more oak-driven whiskey or aged-rum profile.
