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.

Corner
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but a final filter through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates Tennessee Whiskey from its Kentucky cousin. The finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.

Todd,
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
