Baby Blue Corn Whisky Bottling Note

This is the first Texan whisky, as well as being the first whisky to be distilled from blue corn! When we first tried this we thought it was wonderful, though very "different". These days it's become a firm favourite, along with the rest of the craft distillery's fantastic releases.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Soft vanilla and notes of candied peel. Caramelised bananas, toasted oak and a little creamy cereal sweetness.

Palate: Rich, thick, palate entry. A touch of dark caramel and baked apple. Baking spices, salted butter.

Finish: Spiced, medium finish. Quite sweet.

User Reviews of the Balcones Baby Blue Corn Whisky

Give it some time and imagination. Texan and Mexican - Great.

I first tried Balcones a couple of years ago and tried all the standard range. Since then I have enjoyed the Cask strength offerings as well. The Baby Blue was my least favourite but I've modified my opinion. Its lower strength (46%) allows the corn element to shine and this is a great corn whisky. Compare it to other corn whiskies and it shines. The higher strength True Blue takes on more of the Balcones signature character and then it's a matter of whether you like Balcones or not. Balcones do things differently and any potential purchaser should consider that. Baby Blue, tortilla chips and guacamole is a marriage.

Great Product

This is moderately priced in New York. Great and unique whiskey for $39.99

Not good

Absolutely howling, tastes like how black bin bags smell.

Baby blue gives the blues

Felt very disappointed with this, can't believe the price must be marketed for the Asian market.

Not good.. trying to enjoy this but its pretty harsh. Not sure how to describe it except bad... wish it were better as I am from Texas like this but no.

Blue Poo

Without a doubt the worst whiskey I've ever had the misfortune to smell and taste. Couldn't finish my ounce. Absolutely nothing about it was worth the price I paid. Sorry to be so harsh, but I'm just being honest. Smelled of rotten wet corn, chemicals, fake vanilla, and spent brewing grain. Honestly, I want my money back. Beyond disappointed.

Not impressed

I didn't realise this was so award winning when I tried it at a whisky festival today. I was after some True Blue but they'd run out and I settled for this instead. Was quite glad to get it over with and move on. Sorry Balcones.

Vanilla Ice

Tried this last night after wanted to buy a bottle for a while. Well I wish I hadn't bothered.
I understand the need for variety in this world but if I wanted added vanilla essence in my whiskey I would add my own. I don't believe for a second that the product is heavily manipulated when all I really wanted was a posh Mellow Corn.

Basically, over sweetened, over priced, trendy, over hyped, vanilla flavoured p**** for the Asian market.

Baby blue

Super surprise offering at the Langham in Pasadena. Superb sipping whisky!

POwerful baby

This isn't one for drinkin' straight - but try it in a Boulevardier. This has become my go-to spirit for that cocktail - as the richness and oiliness from the corn contributes so much more than the sum of the part.

Give it a chance because it's a grower

It smells awful and the first taste doesn't impress. I was very disappointed. I read some of the MoM reviews and one of them said to add a dash of water and allow it to breathe. What difference it made! I can now appreciate the flavours: sweet popcorn, smooth buttery finish. Baby Blue is expensive and I'm not sure it's worth the price but I am converted.

American corn whiskey, if aged at all, is aged in used barrels (like scotch), unlike bourbon which by law has to be aged in new, charred barrels. It is possible that artificial colouring has been added, but no one can say for sure. Artificial colouring is forbidden in American whiskey if it is bourbon or is labelled as "straight."

Wanted to try something new from a smaller distiller. Tried the Single Malt and was impressed. The bottle of Baby Blue i picked up was absolutely horrid. The nose was hot and putrid like a poorly distilled product. The flavor was also dominated by that same hot sensation. The overall feeling was that of drinking bad moonshine. Are they adding food coloring for the color?!? ... cause it doesn't taste barrel aged at all. Would not dream of buying this product again.

too Inconsistent

I ordered a couple of Drams (had some friends to share it with) but each was a different colour and each was very different. the lighter coloured dram was smoother with a more Tortilla nose and Palate. the darker one has a golden syrup and pop corn nose with a much sweeter palate.
BOTH left a horrid aftertaste which lasted ages and left you mouth feeling very dry.

Sweet Blues

This is lovely...sweetly different...yes the popcorn is there (weird taste for a whiskey, or a bourbon, whatever this is), and it's sweet,,but there is a slightly spicy finish and a lovely afterburn...gets better after the 5th glass...try won't taste anything else like it

Cinema trip in a glass

Like drinking salted caramel popcorn, this is smooth, sweet and delicious. Maybe a little light for some but I love it.

Don't try blending vodka and sweet popcorn for the cheap option though, not worth it.

Something different

A different, but enjoyable dram. Strong caramel, vanilla and slightly salty. Very easy and enjoyable wee dram.

17th September 2013

I guess that why they call it the Blue

Agree that it needs a little time to air and water and is pleasant either way. But doesnt blow me away. Too light and not much going on bar the slight rum like sweetness described. Much preferred the cheaper Mellow Yellow corn whiskey.

Blue Corn Fan

Really enjoyed the Dram, nose of sweet vanilla, caramel, and melted mozzarella

Tastes of sweet candy and vanilla, smooth with a slight burn at the end. Benefits from an ever so
slight bit of water and 15 mins to breathe in the glass.
Jack Daniels has a rival in Texas!

Balcones Baby Blue

All Devon fudge and roasted nuts - definitely different but very tasty.
