Balcones Texas Pot Still Bourbon
Just tried Balcones Texas Pot Still Bourbon, pretty good. Would recommend for a casual afternoon drink.
Having sampled the Baby Blue corn whiskey from Balcones and liking it very much, I was looking forward to trying their Bourbon. I had to wait awhile for it to become available and finally it did at my local Total Wine & more at a very reasonable price. The nose is at first very much like the Baby Blue corn whiskey but then it sneaks up on you. A subtle warm marsh mellowly aroma takes over that makes you want to linger over the rim of your glass. In the mouth, you immediately know its whiskey your drinking, the burn lets you know in a very good way. This is the first whiskey burn I look forward to. The toasted almond flavor it carries finishes very long. Love this Texas version of bourbon. We are not in Kentucky anymore Toto.
It is a pretty good bourbon to enjoy on the rocks, almond taste when put on the rocks, has a good burn kick at the beginning but goes down smoothly. Way better than many Kentucky brand whiskies
