Small batch Texan Bourbon.
 
Alamo Distilling was founded in 2017, which makes it a quite young establishment, but that doesn’t mean they’re noobs. They’re one of the few “grain-to-glass” distilleries, betting on locally-sourced ingredients. Situated in downtown San Antonio, the girls and boys of Alamo make sure you can taste Texas in their Spirits.
 
Alamo Black Label Bourbon Whiskey is hand-crafted from corn, barley and rye. It’s aged in new American oak barrels, bringing out the lush and sweet sensations. It’s perfect neat or in a good Old Fashioned.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Jamie
Jamie,
Solid bourbon. Soft flavor.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
A little too smoky and peaty for me. Just not my thing.
 
Michael
Michael,
I was pleasantly surprised by the sweet fruity flavor I experienced after my third swap. This was my favorite of the Texan Spirit trio because of the unique twist mixed with classic flavors you want from your bourbon.
 
Natasha
Natasha,
I liked this one of the Texan taster set the most. I didn’t think it tasted like a lot of smoke. I think the oak, sweet, spicy, fruity flavors were more prominent.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, balance, Bourbon Whiskey that has a rich birth with notes of caramel, peat smoke & spices; while a bold & rich life adds notes of corn, oak, vanilla, dark fruits & brown sugar; that leads to an elegant death with notes of barley & rye spice.
 
Robert
Robert,
Very smoky at first with almost no flavor. My first impression was not good. Spicy comes second and it gets sweeter with each sip. You get more caramel and hints of fruit as you go. Pretty smooth with a medium finish. Enjoyed the last sip significantly more than the first.
 
Sean
Sean,
Nice amber color, smell is mild and the initial taste is full of smoke with a hint of peat. A bit on the harsh side, not my favorite. After a few sips you can taste some caramel with some light sweet aftertaste. Overall about a middle of the road bourbon. I probably wouldn’t order this in a bar or buy a bottle..

Smokey with a nice mellow aftertaste.

Spicy caramel; complex. Want to visit distillery.
 
Al
Al,
Nice young bourbon. Looking forward to tasting a cask strength that’s maybe 6-7 yrs old. Promising!
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Color is amber. Nose mildly gives off ethanol and young corn, with a muted malty background. First sip tastes better than it smells, with mild malty flavor, as well as some vanilla and baking spice. However, the young corn still contributes, distracting from the desired flavors, making any other good flavors or aromas very difficult to find. Mouthfeel is a little oily, showing the youth. Overall, not ready for prime time.

disappointing flavor

Just a little smoky and definitely sweet.

Stephen,
Moderately Smokey, a reasonable drink with a mid finish. Decent, something I would drink again
 
John
John,
Good smoothness to it. May have went to an 8 if it had more of a flavor switch on finish. As it is it’s kind of flat. But a good flat. Flavor spiral shows smoky but I didn’t get that.

Tasty bourbon
 
Stefanie
Stefanie,
Smells of brown sugar. The smokey peaty side does not come through until you taste it. It did not taste as sweet as I expected and the smoke and spice saved it. I was surprised at how much I like this. It is so smooth I could still taste food with no interference of after taste.
 
Matt
Matt,
Not really getting the smoky or peaty flavors and glad for it.
 
Angela
Angela,
Don’t get the smoke at all. Nice hint of caramel and vanilla
 
Michael
Michael,
Really nice spice...the rye and barley really stands out to me
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Sweet nose and on the taste. The caramel comes through right away, and there is some underlying orange. The spiciness is easy to taste, but something about the balance seems off. Certainly not my favorite bourbon.
 
Liz
Liz,
I did not get the smoky and peaty notes like others, but that may be because I just had a strong scotch tasting before. It was sweet, but a one not wonder for me.
 
Alex
Alex,
The smoky and sweet spiciness all roll together quite well. The peaty notes also compliment the profile
 
Scot
Scot,
Love this! I drink over an ice cube. Great Carmel and peppers. Strong smoke, but not in a cheap cigarette butt kind of way. Very nice. I’ll be gettin more o this!

Ian,
Great! Fun nose. But feels like it’s two flavors competing for the top spot.
