Review by Balcones

Nose

Ripe, buttered stone fruit, banana and pears; honey and rose water with delicate citrus accents

Palate

Silky and full on the palate; lightly toasted bread with fresh butter and marmalade

Finish

Long finish with lingering toast and burnt sugar notes morphing into rich malt and wood flavors with counterbalancing acidity

Note

A timeless style of malt whisky, Balcones "1" Texas Single Malt breathes new life into centuries of distilling tradition with classic techniques and ingredients adapted for New World tastes. Opening aromas bear hints of toffee and overripe fruits. On the palate, layers of toasted malt and honey give way to mellow notes of baked pears and apples. A long finish is accompanied by cinnamon and cloves. Texas made, Texas proud, we hope you enjoy the whisky we owe our success to as much as we enjoy making it.
