Balcones Brimstone

Balcones Brimstone

Official bottling
Single corn - Texas
Dark amber
53% ABV

Nose: Brown paper, smoke, maple syrup, black tea, blueberries, vanilla, hints of turmeric.
Mouthfeel: Light body, slippery, airy, watery around the edges.
Tasting: Bitter sweet. Brown paper, maple syrup, sweet potatoes, vanilla, magic marker, hints of turmeric.
Finish: Long. Sweet potatoes, vanilla, magic marker, pears.


Interestingly made - the whiskey has been smoked (not the grain, the whiskey itself) with scrub oak. It's sweet and smoky, with a vegetable hint of something very like sweet potatoes. Good complexity, even spiciness. Very nice, and I hope Balcones keep producing this sort of stuff.


I like this.
