Go BIG or go home. The only way they know... and follow. 

You just have to love the charming, independent, and rebellious Spirit of Texas. Balcones Distilling is based in Waco—just about halfway between Dallas and Austin. Texas is a big state, and they like everything big … big steaks, big trucks, big hats, and big flavors. Balcones is still a small distillery (thank goodness!), but it is filled with big ideas.  
 
They hand-make a range of Whiskeys, Rums, and mysterious fiddly things, all of which are unabashedly crafted with the big flavors they love.  But just because these Texan Spirits stand up and yell Yeee-Haw!” doesn’t mean they don’t have all the serious craftsmanship and quality you get in the big city or the fancy-dancy capitals of Europe.  These spirits are top notch, and they have the awards to prove it.

Balcones Distillery keeps on cranking out some of the coolest new products with a healthy dose of Texan independence and good ‘ol American tryhard grit. Their ingenuity manifests itself in the Balcones Brimstone Smoked Corn Whisky, which is definitely one of the most original smoky brews around. What’s the catch? Instead of smoking the grain, they smoke the Whisky. 
 
How exactly do the Balcones boys perform such a feat (sans peat)? Well, that’s a secret, y’all. All we know is the Whisky is smoked using sun-baked Texas scrub oak, which gives it the intense aroma of a traditional Texas BBQ that hits you in the face faster than a campfire with some serious tail wind. Hate it or love, there’s no denying the fact that this Whisky leaves no one indifferent. Right on. Go BIG or go home.

Too much smoke, harsh

Damien,
Okay. Taste of smoked meat with a good after burn to it. The notes of this fine whiskey is dead on accurate. Texas BBQ and Everything With.

Scott,
My favorite of Balcones' offerings. The smoke on this one is special. Makes for interesting cocktails especially when it replaces Scotch.

Ryan,
Little too much of the smoked oak for me on its own. A bit of a liquid smoke meets ethanol. It is perfect for the right cocktail though.

Anthony,
nose: barbeque, smoke, steak, some sugar sweetness palate: slightly oily, smoke, more bbq finish: peppery and sweet, bbq sauce, medium long finsih, how you dream your bbq food tastes overall: definitely unique and one of a kind. not sure when you would ever have it but it is good
