Balcones Brimstone Whiskey
On the nose, Balcones offers bold, complex aromas of chocolate, caramel, toffee, vanilla and coffee, backed by a distinctive note of roasted corn. At 123 proof, the palate makes quite an impression, but the addition of water allows intricate notes of caramel, fudge, orange spice, fresh oak, pear, leather and cinnamon to emerge. Spicy notes of chili pepper appear on the long, warming finish.
Balcones Brimstone is a one-of-a-kind smoked Texas whisky with a bold yet balanced flavor.
Distilled from 100% roasted Hopi Blue Corn, this whisky earned a score of 95.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.
