Balcones Brimstone
£79.99

A smokey whisky with a difference. Firstly it's made in Texas by Balcones and secondly the smoke comes from a secret process involving Texas Scrub Oak.


NOSE: Barbecue, steaks, brown sugar, raisins, honey roast pork. It's all there, a Texan aroma for a Texan whisky.


PALATE: Peppery and sweet in equal quantities with some herbal undertones and BBQ sauce overtones.


FINISH: The finish is like a pepper-rubbed steak with a little charcoal too!

Description

Details

The Balcones distillery is housed within an old welding shop under a bridge in Waco, Texas. While that might sound like the setting for a horror movie, it’s actually the birthplace of delicious and legendary craft whisky! A vast majority of the equipment used by Balcones to make the whisky was built by Chip and other Balcones members using sheet metal, welding tools and hammers. The end result was a fully functional distillery made by hand, exactly how they wanted it.

Following that extreme display of ingenuity and awesomeness came even more ingenuity and awesomeness as they started distilling their whisky. They produced the first ever Texan whisky, the Texas Single Malt, and the first ever Blue Corn whisky, the True Blue, both of which have been showered in accolades and awards. As they continue to add new whiskies and get medals draped around their necks, we’d say that Chip has achieved his goal. Balcones makes Texas whisky, not just whisky made in Texas.

BALCONES BRIMSTONE

This one-of-a-kind whisky is smoked with sun-baked Texas scrub oak using our own secret process.  The result is a whisky full of fresh, youthful corn and light fruit notes married with a bold smokiness.  Whether you like smoky whiskies, or just have a penchant for big, new flavours, Brimstone is sure to be a memorable pour.  Aromas of masa, Texas campfire and powdered sugar backed by stone fruit, peppery spice, and mint. Bold yet balanced, Brimstone is yet another Texas original from Balcones.
