Balcones Single Malt Whiskey 750 ML Hard to find! A unique style of malt whisky - Texas made, Texas proud. Balcones Texas Malt Whisky is born of hundreds of years of distilling tradition transformed by a deep sense of place. Mellow notes of sauteed pears and ripe fruit mixed with a lingering toasty malt character. We are very excited that this whisky which we have worked so hard to produce in finally ready to release. We hope you enjoy it. 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 recherch 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.
