Balcones Lineage Texas Single Malt Whiskey

Your Price: $59.95
Balcones Lineage Texas Single Malt is a marrying of the traditional Scotch Single Malts that have long been an inspiration to the brand while innovating with new approaches to grain and maturation that celebrate Texas provenance. Lineage is made using a combination of Simpsons Golden Promise malted barley from Scotland as well as malted barley grown in the high plains of Texas. The spirit is then matured both in new oak barrels, as is the tradition with most American Whisky, and refill (or used) oak barrels, the more common approach with Single Malt tradition. By taking cues from two distinct approaches to maturation and malted barley, Lineage expresses Balcones appreciation of where whisky has been and where it can go in the future.

Balcones Lineage Texas Single Malt Whiskey

Balcones Distilling announced today the newest member of its iconic Texas Single Malt line. As one of the pioneers of the emerging American Single Malt category, Balcones is expanding its prestigious roster of whiskies with the launch of a new year-round Texas Single Malt expression.

Balcones Lineage Texas Single Malt is a marrying of the traditional Scotch Single Malts that have long been an inspiration to the brand while innovating with new approaches to grain and maturation that celebrate Texas provenance. Lineage is made using a combination of Simpsons Golden Promise malted barley from Scotland as well as malted barley grown in the high plains of Texas. The spirit is then matured both in new oak barrels, as is the tradition with most American Whisky, and refill (or used) oak barrels, the more common approach with Single Malt tradition. By taking cues from two distinct approaches to maturation and malted barley, Lineage expresses Balcones appreciation of where whisky has been and where it can go in the future.  

"Whether it is unique flavor or process innovation, we are always striving to contribute something new to the whisky conversation, said Jared Himstedt, head distiller at Balcones Distilling. By combining new & old world ingredients, process, and maturation approaches, we have created something entirely new, and in doing so, we are hoping to push the American Single Malt category forward.

The new expression joins the rest of Balcones highly-acclaimed Texas Single Malt line, including the flagship year-round Texas and the brands many limited release expressions including Mirador, Peated, Fr.Oak, Texas Single Malt Rum Cask Finished, High Plains, Brujeria, and Single Barrel Private Selections.  

On the nose, Lineage is sweet and indulgent with notes of mulled cider, cream soda, bruised bananas, and peaches. On the palate, the whisky features carmalized sweetness, soft oak, manuka honey, chestnuts, and a hint of red wine reduction. The late palate transitions into a finish of tea tree, black tea, and a hint of cinnamon.
