Pure Azul Whiskey from One-Star State.

Balcones Distillery is a small establishment with big ideas and an array of awards. They are leading a small Spirit revolution from Waco, Texas, where rivers of top-notch hooch are flowing: rugged Bourbons and delicious Single Malts that are bound to redefine what an American Whiskey can be.

One of their masterpieces is a wonderful True Blue - made from blue corn, no relation to "Heisenberg's ice." Blue Corn is also known as Rio Grande Blue and it grows in Mexico and the Southwestern US. It has a sweet flavor and is usually used to make tortillas. It's one of the reasons we can talk about terroir with this azure Whisky. It's a truly powerful dram, diluted town to 100 proof and it presents us with a complex and soft character, perfect both straight or with a splash of water.

Richard
Richard,
I'm a bourbon drinker and this is a very nice change of pace. Calm, buttery nose and sweet taste, definitely from the corn. Finish lingers a while, also.
 
William
William,
Pure sweet caramel and corn perfection. This could be a starter whiskey for someone but in the 100 there’s a punch behind the sweet start. Might be the best of the always great Balcones lineup.
 
Rebecca
Rebecca,
Super high in alcohol - tasted more like a bad tequila than a whiskey.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Love the true corn flavor preserved in the process. You are transported to the harvest. It is hot and simple but with hidden complexity, so add a water drop, study it, and repeat, to progress through the flavor profile.

Brent,
Amazingly smooth! Hints of chocolate and almond on the palate.

Throughly unique and enjoyable. Glad I picked this up. I keep finding myself reaching for this bottle.

Scott,
Sadly this tasting box of Balcones has been the first time I have considered the Bourbon industry to be flooded with fakes ! Each of these tasted like flavored white spirit or moonshine. Lacked body, high alcohol content not the good kind, felt like I was tasting added flavourings vs real infused flavors

Jeremy,
Super interesting. I enjoyed drinking this, but can't rate it higher than a 7/10 because it simply wasn't the first bottle I reached for on any given day. I'm glad it exists in the world, though—Balcones is doing meaningful work, innovating American whiskies.

Nice. I usually prefer Scotch, but I could get comfortable with True Blue.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
nose: pot pourri, sweetness, banana bread, freshly made chocolate chip cookie dough (no joke), vanilla ice cream, cake, rich buttery baked goods, some big red cinnamon, really really nice balance palate:soft mouthfeel, banana bread, some spiced cake, burnt sugar finish: the cookie dough comes through, great balance of spice, sweet, long finish, get some banana bread, some burnt sugar, maybe a little salt but only in the balance of the cookie dough overall: this is truly delicious. its almost everything the st. georges tries to be but isnt. lots of great depth, spice and sweet and incredible flavors. its like taking childhood baking smells and putting them into 100 proof whiskey
