Handcrafted in small batches, Balcones Texas Single Malt Whisky is made from 100% malted Golden Promise barley. Golden Promise is an early-maturing spring barley that has a depth of flavor ideal for single malts. While it was popular in Scotland for many years, it gave way to cheaper barely that was higher in yield but lower in quality.
Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 

n: black cherry, apple cider, Raisin Bran cereal, vanilla, and something like a ice wine (dessert wine - dried grapes and sweet).

 

t: butterscotch, flat baking spices, dried apricot. Middle has a nice malty heart with toasted oak and green apples. Finish is hot and kinda short with clove, black licorice, and dried dark fruit. This is a promising malt, but has quite a few rough edges - I'll call that character.
