Balcones Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1124449 Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Finished in ex-Bourbon casks, this dark amber Texas single malt has a thick, syrupy scent, evoking caramel and root beer. Although the alcohol level is palate-numbingly boozy, the flavors are interestingly complex and dry, showing cocoa, leather and espresso. (KN) Inner quote mark (7/2012)

K&L Notes

Balcones's award-winning Texas whiskies are suddenly heavily sought-after, perhaps none more so than their single malt whisky. With a deluge of flavor, this dram shows rich malty notes with heavily toasted char and even a bit of Burgundian red fruit on the finish. It has a basic character of traditional Scotch whisky, but then meanders into a completely unexplored realm. At 53%, the flavors are bold and brash — not unlike Texas itself!

I would seriously never have considered a Texas single malt whisky unless it was sitting in front of me, nearly daring me, saying, hey, I dare ya. What a surprise. A surprisingly developed aroma of roasted walnut, with a deep, darkly sherried palate that reminds me a little of, say, the Cragganmore 23, but with cinnamon spice, too--not in a bourbony way. This rich, dark single malt may be not quite as complex of some of our older, nutty Scotch single malts, but it is a really great effort from the single star, I mean the Lone Star state.
