Balcones were the first to use blue corn to create a corn whisky, and now they've gone and created a bourbon using blue corn in its mashbill too! A big, bold expression from the distillers in Waco, Texas. Texas- Born from a 100% mash of blue corn, this whisky is forged in a variety of new charred oak barrels for a bold and complex character that invokes the spirit of Texas. This is a big full bodied whisky, with a rich midpalate, coating mouthfeel and long finish. Balcones is a grain to glass distillery conveniently located in downtown, Waco, the heart of Texas. They craft many unique whiskies and spirits, all of which have received worldwide recognition.

About the brand
Balcones was born when Chip Tate woke one day and decided to do something new. Rather than launch a new pasta sauce or man bag, Tate decided that he would aim much higher. He would start his own Texas whiskey tradition. And so the American craft distillery of Balcones was born. The distillery itself is housed within an old welding shop under a bridge in Waco, Texas. Whilst that might sound like an odd setting for distillery, it has so far proven to be the perfect place for producing this classy whiskey. Original from the outset, a vast majority of the equipment used on site has been built by Chip himself and other Balcones members using sheet metal, welding tools and hammers. A distillery made by hand. You can’t get more craft than that! Following Chip’s courage and ingenuity in putting together the distillery, came the whiskey itself. Balcones successfully produced the first ever Texan whisky, the Texas Single Malt, and the first ever Blue Corn whisky, the True Blue, both of which have been met with an army of fans and have since, received a breathtaking 140 accolades and international awards, including 2015 Grand Global American Whiskey in the New York International Spirits Competition; 2015 Texas Distillery of the Year in Whisky Magazine Icons of Whisky; and 2014 Craft Whiskey Distillery of the Year at the New York International Spirits Competition. As Chip continues to bring his – now famous – ten unique whiskies and spirits to the public and win more awards along the way, he is safe in the knowledge that he’s achieved his goal: Making truly Texan whiskies.

What a dazzling measure! On an ongoing visit to the Balcones refinery in Waco TX I attempted this with a couple of different measures (see other late audits) and discovered this to satisfy its notoriety here in Texas. On the button it's an all the more full bodied rendition of their Child Blue with just about a smooth tea note and some calfskin (think cowhide bound books). The taste is too smooth with sweet corn notes dark tea and heaps of oak from all that time in the barrel in the Texas heat. The completion is moderate however with insignificant consume. Somewhat pricy because of the Heavenly attendant's Offer here in Texas however a quality drop in the event that you discover it close to you.

High ABV shrouds a great part of the character of this corn whiskey. A couple of drops of water brings out more flavors and it gets one of my preferred Texas bourbons. Unquestionably attempt it with some water.

Nose
Fresh vanilla, coffee bean and a hearty dollop of honey. Toasted walnut and roast chestnut notes follow.
Taste
Cigar box, chocolate truffle, still quite nutty. A burst of spicy cinnamon at the core.
Finish
Molasses, caramel and a hint of fried bread.
