BALCONES TEXAS SINGLE MALT WHISKY 750


The Balcones Single Malt I am tasting is from batch 11-2. The whiskey is handcrafted in small batches in copper pot stills. To maintain the full rich flavor it is non-chill filtered and has no artificial color or flavor. The mash bill is 100% malted barley. The hugest difference between this and other Single Malts is not just that it is from Texas, it is principally from how it is barrel aged. Each batch rests in a number of varying barrels in an assortment of sizes and made from a mixed bag of woods before the final marriage / aging is accomplished in big barrels; this big barrel was coppered from yard aged American Oak. The results are arresting, fantastic, intricate and uniquely exquisite. The aromas show over ripe pear, dark dried fruits and delicate spice—perhaps simmered together as a compote—very gorgeous. That flavors follow suit with an astounding display of complexity that does not focus or fade, but that is intricately persistent. The finish display traditional malts, honey and caramel along side of the recherché aromas and flavors. This is amazing whiskey. No wonder the Master Distiller just won Icons of whiskey and this whiskey just took “Chairmans Trophy” (Highest award) at The Ultimate Spirits Competition last month. Try this with an open mind and prepare to be surprised!
