Balcones Single Malt Bottling Note

A very interesting single malt American whisky from Texas, this was distilled at Balcones and was "yard-aged" in ex-bourbon American oak before bottling. Expect huge flavours from this one...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Freshly baked banana bread with undertones of honey and vanilla and just the faintest hint of cedar wood at the back. Suggestions of roasted chestnuts and heavy cream.

Palate: Ester-y with apple and orchard fruits. Brown sugar makes an appearance and transforms into molasses.

Finish: Warm, woody spices and some breadiness, but not necessarily maltiness, completes this luscious single malt.

Balcones Texas Single Malt Reviews

Undrinkable acetone

Was really looking forward to this one after how hyped this distillery is by the Whiskey Tribe. Found this one to be laden with notes of acetone. Undrinkable in my opinion. Just about broke my heart to pour about the entire bottle down the drain. If it was just not my cup of tea I wouldn’t have left a review.

Simply astounding

This Single malt is like nothing you've ever had before. I've been drinking whisky for nearly 30 years and nothing comes close to this. I'm a huge fan of Glengoyne and their 21 year old, but this Balcones Single malt beats it for me. Mainly because of the remarkable flavour they get into it in only 3 years. If you've never had an amercian whisky before start with this one. Balcones will take the world of whisky by storm.

Very Nice

I am a scotch collector (240 open bottles) and so I always look for something new and interesting. I finally found this bottle at a local liquor store for $75. I just opened the bottle, poured a dram into my Glencairn glass and let it breath for a few minutes. The nose is of a barrel strength bourbon, but the taste is definitely of a scotch (it is 100% barley). It tasted like a mix of Jura, Highland Park 18, and a Macallan 18....in which is very strange since this is less than 2 years old. I am very impressed.

Excellent American Single Malt

Worth the hype. This baby packs a lot of power and needs time to open up, but this is an outstanding representation of an American Single Malt. It's unique, perhaps not for everyone, but this whiskey snob is more than satisfied.

Balcones Texas Single Malt

Amerikansk single malt som luktar närmast lik Dalmore Vintage 2004 utav de jag provat. Banangodis, vanilj, malt, ganska mild i dofterna utöver banan som sticker ut litegrann. Smakstark, först och främst en syrlig god smak som övergår i träig samt smak av färskt ganska grovt mjukt bröd, kaffebönor och lätt kryddig. Lukten är förvisso god men den speglar bara smaken till en viss del. Jättegod!

beyond my expectation

knew about the hype and about Tate's demise..
looked for something that was barreled in 2015.. found one and amazed..
solid flavor and noticeable smoothness.. felt a bit of bourbon and a tiny bit spicy..

Yes , I said it after drinking Mac10,12,18 and many more others.. Can't wait until Chip starts his own shop again..

Phenomenal

Egad. The flavour that's packed into this is simply unreal. Watch out Scotland.

my favorite..

not sure if post-Tate products will be as good.. i'm stocking up the ones that he made (pre-2015).. they are just so good.. amazing combination of flavor and balance and creaminess..
