A simply fabulous Texas-style Peated Single Malt with a rich and full-flavored everything.

You just have to love the charming, independent, and rebellious spirit of Texas. Balcones Distilling is based in Waco — just about half way 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 Whiskies, Rums, and mysterious fiddly Spirits — all of which are unabashedly crafted with the big flavors they love. These Spirits are top notch, and they have the awards to prove it.

Balcones Peated Texas Single Malt was first released in 2018 as "Balcones 1," and that number is still emblazoned on the label today. Since there are no peat bogs in Texas, they import Golden Promise barley from Scotland that has been malted and gently dried over peat. Then they run it through their Scottish copper-pot still. It’s aged for three years and delivered at a powerful 62.9% ABV. This flavorful annual release has sold out each year since its launch.

Appearance / Color
Warm garnet

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The smoke-effect of the peat is gentle and elegant with earthy aromas of incense, charred cedar, toasted oak, and Teriyaki BBQ with a ginger cookie tingle.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile is lifted with a soft smokiness throughout supporting rich, sweet notes of baking spices, roasted chilis, sultanas, Nutella, espresso, cherry compote, and smoked meats.

Finish
The finish is long and mouth-watering.

Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
