Is there a way through which I can select the default tag for the all the document in a document library.

I am sure it can be done using a "ItemAdded" event redeiver, just wondering if we can configure that using the OOB techniques.

Any ideas?

Look into SP2010 feature of Managed Metadata that can have default value when applied. Storing documents within a Document Set that has the Managed Metadata applied can propagate the metadata values to the documents in the Document Set.

There is no out of the box way to set this since the tags are actually maintained by users and part of the user profile service. Adding a default tag to an item would have to be done under the context of a user.
