Balcones 100 Proof Texas Rye Whiskey (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 50% Age: No Age Statement Country: America
Established in 2008 Balcones Distillery was created to deliver a product that is original and and authentic. More importantly it was to deliver this right in the heart of Texas. Taking an old welding shop under a bridge in Waco it was slowly transformed into a whisky distillery and in 2009 the first spirit ran through the stills.
The producers here source local grain, blue corn from New Mexico, Texas grown malted barley, local re-coopered barrels and rain water. The idea is to create whisky that is recognisable and delectable. Ageing here is performed in a unique climate, barrels ‘breathe’ much faster than in Scotland which causes the oak flavours to mingle quicker and accelerates the ageing process. This is whisky that is full of rich flavours and bursting with character.
Using a 100% Rye Mashbill that includes 80% raw elbon grain from north and north west Texas as well as as crystal, chocolate, and roasted rye varieties. Distilling in copper pot stills and maturation for at least two years in American oak barrels creates a Rye with a difference. First released in 2018 as part of the distilleries 10th anniversary celebrations.
