Unique Balcones Bourbon for connoisseurs and debutants.
 
In 2009, a tiny distilling establishment with big ideas was founded in an old welding shop under a bridge in Waco, Texas. Balcones Distilling is where a small Spirit revolution took place and pushed Texans into a new era of fine booze. After they refurbished the old building and brought copper pot stills from Portugal, rugged Bourbons and delicious Single Malts started flowing, redefining what the American Whiskey can be. Using blue corn from New Mexico and Texas-grown barley, Balcones creates Spirits with a recognizable terroir.
 
Texas Pot Still Straight Bourbon Whisky is one of the special releases, distilled in a giant Forsyth pot still and matured for a couple of years in new charred American oak barrels. Another special feature of this Bourbon is its mash bill: roasted blue corn, Texas wheat, Texas rye and malted barley. Bottled at 92 proof, it’s both a crowd-pleaser as a gateway Balcones Bourbon, and a sophis​ticated expression designed for seasoned fans of the brand.

What does Balcones Texas Pot Still Bourbon taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Balcones Texas Pot Still Bourbon and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

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

Frank
Frank,
Spicy, very unique flavor.
 
Rusty
Rusty,
Not delicious, has a distinct metallic aftertaste.
 
Jonathon
Jonathon,
This has quickly become my families favorite bourbon. Smooth but full flavor. Loved it so much, i bought a bottle for my father father's day, so essentially I put my reputation on it.
 
Chris
Chris,
Really good, although it took awhile to adapt to the unique flavor. I consistently get a flavor on the front palette of green grapes. Funky and delicious
 
Clifford
Clifford,
Reading other reviews, wasn't sure when I ordered it how I would feel. This really fits into that love it or hate it category in my mind. Yes, I love it. And, as I usually say, great neat over my soapstone cubes to chill a little.

A little too smoky and not a great finish

David,
Between this and Balcones Baby Blue, get this. While it has a unique taste, it is way easier to come back to after that first sip than Baby Blue, and almost $10 cheaper.
 
Isak
Isak,
Starts off with a nice sweet corn note that turns into a Texas HOT spicy pepper. Finishes smooth & spicy. Very interesting, definitely stands out from other bourbons with its unique flavor profile. All in all, this is a damn good bourbon, and at $30 a pop, it’s an absolute steal.

Smooth, smoked and charred notes with sweet caramel, cinnamon and a bit of heat on the finish.

If you’ve ever eaten a vanilla flavored coffee bean you will know what I mean when I say, “there is coffee in there no matter what the spiral says.” One of my favorite bourbons to sip, neat or rocks.

Big bold flavors! Love it!

Elizabeth,
This really has a peppery bite to it. It's not bad, just unexpected that it would be the most forward thing in the flavor profile.

Jeff
Jeff,
This is a wonderful whiskey with deep flavors. I was really impressed with the taste and quality considering it's price. I tried another Balcones in a tasting kit and this one was not as intense or deep but was still very satisfying
 
Aaron
Aaron,
This had a great flavor, but was too hot on the palate for my liking. I prefer a more subtle heat, but this was right up in your face. If you're a fan of that, then this bourbon is for you....just not for me.
 
Adam
Adam,
At this price level I don't know why it's not everyone's well brand. Exceptionally smooth and very sweet. I wouldn't say that this is a complex bourbon, but it's definitely a must have in my cabinet for cocktails and the occasional neat pour.

Not my taste....

Very smooth. The nose is not harsh at all. The flavor is smooth up front with a bit of spice at the end. Not quite as good as Garrison Brothers but it’s less than half the price. This will be a regular at my house.
 
Vincent
Vincent,
Corn is heavy on the nose and the mouthfeel; tastes like a young Bourbon. Not my favorite; will get used in cocktails.
 
Mike
Mike,
Wonderful aroma, extremely smooth- my wife's uncle and I tried it together and he was as impressed as I was.
 
Katie
Katie,
The corn taste was too strong for my taste. It tastes like it’s trying to be sweet, but comes up short. The flavor is just not for me.
 
bill
bill,
This is freaking dangerous stuff. An oaky taste but smooth finish. You are drinking along and probably more than you should because it is so smooth. Seriously, everybody who tried it, said it was one of the more smooth whiskey's they've had. highly recommend it.
 
Eric
Eric,
heavy char and burnt nickels. this is only my second texas bourbon, but i'm starting to think that it's just not my thing.

guest,
Amazing bourbon. Mouthfeel is like that of a rich highland scotch. Robust aroma of caramel and corn and oak. Stewed stonefruit in the palate... apricot, cherry, honey, brown sugar. Rich leathery oak. Finish is all cacao nibs, a little coconut, and some sea salt.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Strong taste, not to my liking
 
Gary
Gary,
Chocolate covered cherries on the nose. Great, single barrel chew, almost frontier style. Long, great finish of tobacco and leather. A very underestimated bourbon. Dive in!
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Really solid value Bourbon for the price. Some rounded cherry and chocolate notes. A perfect boulevardier cocktail base!
 
Kevin
Kevin,
So sweet, I get hard candy and smooth. Well rounded. Priced very nice and this could be a go to daily for me, one of my favored bourbons I have tried so far for the price.
 
Gary
Gary,
Cherry and chocolate on the nose. Quick burn, spice going down. Wonderful finish. Grape skins and more tart cherries on the back side.
 
John
John,
Great taste for the price. It is as good as a 60 dollar bottle
 
Troy
Troy,
Light and easy drinking but too much honey for me.
