Balcones Texas Single Malt Whisky is a non-chill-filtered, 53% ABV bottle of Lone-Star awesomeness. 
 
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 things, all of which are unabashedly crafted with the big flavors they love. But just because these Texas Spirits stand up and yell "Yeee-Haw!" doesn’t mean they 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. 
 
To say that Balcones Texas Single Malt is an "award winning" Whisky is like saying Jennifer Lawrence is mildly attractive or that New York has a professional baseball team. Many distilled Spirits are perfectly happy with three or four industry awards so that the marketing team can post silver and gold images on the website. In comparison, Balcones Texas Single Malt Whisky is darn-near a phenomenon, winning more 50 — fifty! — awards. They have more bling then Mr. T. 
 
The fact that a world-class single-malt Whisky can be born in Texas still surprises some of the elitist snobs who care more about Gaelic and French-sounding names than they do about the dram. For the rest of us, Balcones Texas Single Malt Whisky is a non-chill-filtered, 53% ABV bottle of Lone-Star awesomeness. The score is Balcones 50, Whisky snobs 0.

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.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash 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.
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.
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.
