This annual Blue Corn Bourbon release returns with 4 year expression at 60.8% ABV finished in Washington Cabernet and California Grenache puncheons.
The bright rustic nose is reminiscent of oiled leather sofa, antique china cabinet and candied pecans with top notes of black cherry ice cream and strawberry jam on scones, before rounding off with cola garnished with orange peel.
The long and layered palate begins with flutters of gardenia amidst rich notes of cocktail cherries, while warm, spiced pear cobbler leads into a finale of allspice, macerated berries and mint chocolate.
In 2008, Balcones was nothing more than an idea driven by a passion to create something original and authentic, right here in the Heart of Texas. It all started in an old welding shop under a bridge in Waco. For the next year, we replaced the roofing, knocked out walls, laid brick, cut pipes, installed copper pot stills from Portugal, and shoehorned a whisky distillery inside that quaint building. Proud of what we had accomplished on our own, we began distilling in 2009.
