Balcones Brimstone Smoked Whiskey

This one-of-a-kind whisky is smoked with sun-baked Texas scrub oak using our own secret process.  The result is a whisky full of fresh, youthful corn and light fruit notes married with a bold smokiness.  Whether you like smoky whiskies, or just have a penchant for big, new flavors, Brimstone is sure to be a memorable pour.  Aromas of masa, Texas campfire and powdered sugar backed by stone fruit, peppery spice, and mint. Bold yet balanced, Brimstone is yet another Texas original from Balcones.

Balcones Brimstone is made by mashing and fermenting the corn, and distilling the resulting wash twice through Tate's copper-pot stills. Following distillation, Tate smokes the distillate the whisky that is produced after distillation but before maturation with sun-baked Texas scrub oak using a proprietary process that remains a closely-guarded secret. While a number of distilleries smoke grains prior to distilling them peated Scotch, for instance, is made by smoking barley over a peat flame Tate smokes the distillate that is produced after the wash passes through the still.

The proprietary process results in a whisky that has a unique flavor profile the Texas scrub oak adds notes of bacon, barbecue and pulled pork to the whisky. The notes of barbecue and brisket are bold but not overpowering. Rather, they complement flavors of chili pepper, brown sugar, cinnamon and graham crackers. After the distillate is smoked, it is aged in lightly charred, American oak barrels before each bottle is filled and labeled by hand. Balcones Brimstone earned a score of 95.5 points from Jim Murray's Whisky Bible and the title "Best in Category" at the American Distilling Institute Competition in 2012.
