We all know there’s great joy to be had in a fine whisky pairing. Some opt for chocolate. Others cheese. We’re on board with both. But the finest pairing known to humans? Whisky and music. There’s an option for all moods. You can even create your own. AND music doesn’t require a list of dietary requirements. How pleasing.
So, when we got word that Waco-born country artist Jarrod Dickenson was gracing these shores with his presence, supported by whisky brand Balcones (also Waco based! What a match) we wanted in. We headed down one Friday, we cheered, we clapped, we marvelled at his voice. And we also had some VERY delicious Balcones drams. What a night. And then we gave you the chance to head over, too!
All you needed to do was comment on the competition blog telling us your dream Balcones and music pairing. We chose a winner at random, and they are…
Louise Spencer and her plus one! The pairing in question? Texas single malt annual release with George Strait ‘All my exes live in Texas’.
We hope you had the most incredible evening with Jarrod Dickenson and Team Balcones!
