Tasting Notes

A grain to glass Bourbon made from Texas Blue Corn, Texas Wheat, Texas Rye and malted barley. Distilled in their custom Scottish Forsyth Pot Stills, aged in new charred American Oak and bottled at 92 Proof, this is one of the tastiest, flavor packed and most interesting Bourbons you are going to get at this price. A clear stand-out from the many run of the mill in this category.

Staff Pick Notes

In our modern world we make things faster but not necessarily better. Is an e-mail from a friend really better than a hand-written letter? How about instant coffee? Or ramen? When the column still was made, distillers danced in celebration. A machine that promised to make a lot more volume and more efficiently too. Today, few distillers make Bourbon with the “old-fashioned” pot still, and Balcones is one of them. The resulting whiskey is well rounded and brimming with nuance: baked apples, caramel, toasted grain, grilled corn, and smoky char. American distillers love their column stills. They’re efficient, predictable, and they don’t even take up much space. But as consumers, we should decide if they are, indeed, better.
