This is our first single barrel of the wonderful Balcones Single Malt. The outstanding distillery in Waco has been at the forefront of craft distilling since the start. They’re making ultra high quality single malt and aging it in a variety of barrel types. This exceptional single cask was aged in New American oak for 2.5 years in the very hot and dry Waco weather. The resulting whisky is incredibly mature and complex for it’s youthful age statement. Chalk for of spicy woodiness, deep chocolatey malt and sweet roasted vanilla bean. Bottled at a staggering 128.2 proof, this stuff doesn’t drink hot and shows an unbelievable amount of sweet maple syrup and heady raw honey to balance out the intense oak.
