Balcones Texas Rye Whisky
The nose on this lit up with a touch of solvent-y or acetone notes. I don't think I've ever been able to enjoy a whiskey this much after such a rough time picking up the scents of it. Chocolate and black pepper on the palate, with some heavy caramel as well. Easy enough to enjoy once you're tasting it. I'm becoming a Balcones fan for sure but this one isn't the show-stopper some of their others are.
This rye got some great reviews from people I trust, and I bet it's great for those that like this unique flavor. I love Texas, but I just don't like their whiskey as I've tried a few.
