Another in a line of excellent American single malt whiskies. This bottling comes from Balcones, a Texan distillery, and was first introduced in 2011.
The spirit is aged in well seasoned (“yard-aged” as Balcones say) refill Bourbon casks, and serves up loads of rich, spicy and fruity flavours.
The dram delivers notes of bananas, toffee, cedar, oak, apples, pears, lemon rind, burnt brown sugar, esters, cream, honey and vanilla.
This bottling is presented at a formidable proof of 53% ABV, which really allows the flavours to sing.
An excellent single malt whiskey from Texas, this dram was awarded Best American Single Malt Whisky in the 2016 World Whisky Awards.
