Top reviews for Balcones Texas Single Malt Edition:

— Very strong smell but when tasting it has an excellent smoothness to it that makes you want to have more

— Excellent for an American single malt! Rich with a spicy citrus flavor and a Caramel flavor and leathery butterscotch finish.

— I had one of the first editions of this, and finished the bottle with friends in one night. Exceptional. This craft single malt is unlike other single malt scotch whiskies, a bit sweeter and heavier on the wood taste wise.

Marc,
My bottle was bitter and left a burnt aftertaste. The nose was wonderful, and I had high expectations... but I was disappointed. I understand that there was a falling out in the operations at the distillery, and this may have been the result. Oh well... win some, lose some.

Love it! Like having a peanut butter & jelly sandwich near a brush fire on a Texas summer day

Brian,
Balcones won all of these kudos using product from master distiller Chip Tate. There was a family feud at Balcones (See the New York Times) and he was ousted from his own distillery! This is product from one of his assistants, who took over the distillery. Not sure how good it will be, and the lineage doesn't really apply since it was a product launched after the feud. I can say that their Baby Blue's latest incarnation is not quite up to the same standard as the stuff that was winning medals in London and elsewhere.

Flavors in reverse. Smokey start and a sweet finish. If I could only drink one whiskey for the rest of my life it would be this one.

Non chill filtered, higher ABV, single malt from the Lone Star State! Rich buttery goodness this! Smooth, sweet, rich red fruit and it finishes long; which is a very good thing!
