Balcones Brimstone

1 Posted by - 10/11/2013 - American, B Rated, Corn Whisky
Sattle up and prepare yourself (if one truly can) for one of the Texas’s own odd creations: Balcones Brimstone, Texas Scrub Oak Smoked Blue Corn Whisky.

Purification through fire — a Texas oak fire, that is. Rather than using Scottish peat smoke, this one-of-a-kind whisky is smoked with sun-baked Texas scrub oak using our own secret process. The result is a whisky full of fresh youthful corn and light fruit notes married with a bold smokiness. Whether you like smokey whiskies, or just have a penchant for big, new flavors, Brimstone is sure to be memorable pour. Aromas of masa, Texas campfire and powdered sugar tempered with an almost salty goodness. Bold yet balanced, Brimstone is yet another Texas first from Balcones. We hope you enjoy. Brimstone is the world’s first wood smoked whisky … a Texas campfire in a bottle. — www.balconesdistilling.com

I want to unite old friends and share this amazing experience. Whether it be indulging on a few drams of single malt scotch or a unique bourbon I will always find it hard to resist not to diversify and expand our whisk(e)y horizons.
