Balcones Texas Rye Bottling Note

Released in celebration of the distillery's 10th anniversary, this expression from Balcones is made from 100% rye, with the mashbill containing 80% raw elbon grain from north and northwest Texas as well as crystal, chocolate, and roasted rye varieties. It's allowed to age in new charred American oak barrels and bottled at 100 proof. A wonderfully chocolatey rye.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Apple crumble with a helping of cinnamon, hot cocoa with marshmallows, young oak and orange zest, with butter and honey on freshly baked pumpernickel bread.

Palate: Full bodied and prominent cocoa, a pinch of tobacco, melted dark chocolate, orange zest, coffee, and honeyed malt with just a hint of char.

Finish: Dry oak, sawdust, peanut butter, burnt brown sugar and dark caramel chocolate.

Balcones Texas Rye 100 Proof Reviews

One of the best rye whiskies I’ve had.

I’ve only recently started delving into the Rye Whiskey (the Scots own the word Whisky so it’s spelt whiskey anywhere else) and I’ve had 2 or 3 bottles not including this one after buying a “drinks by the dram” sample a few years back and I don’t know why but I tend to go for the darker colour rye whiskeys. Don’t know if it’s due to my inexperience with rye but the deeper the hue the more flavour it has. Not so with single malt especially with Indian whiskey like Paul John. It’s probably because they didn’t use a refill cask so the flavour is more intense. I’m not keen on bourbon which rye is a part of but on its own it’s a really complicated whiskey that is sweet and bread dough like flavour especially from Balcones which is what there famous for. I like every expression Bkacknes so apart from the bourbon. Also there single malt is lovely on its own but in a cocktail man o man your in for a treat. What’s great about Balcones is there specials if your fast enough to get one which I’m never seem to get. I’ve had 2 but this rye is something different and if your wanting to do some exploring then buy a sample if you like it get a bottle why you can because this is the first time I’ve came across a rye from Balcones. Well worth it and it’s a complex whiskey that you can hone your senses on.
