Balcones Texas Straight Bourbon

Who says there aren’t pioneers anymore?

Balcones is a true pioneer, not just in Texas Whiskey but across the board. Their unique releases have proven both that Texas is a serious spirits region and that great whiskey can be made in entirely new ways. Their experiments with mashbills, barrel finishes, barrel sizes, and new techniques have helped break new ground in American whiskey, and we are always excited to work with them. This cask is a great example of what makes them special.  

This straight bourbon whiskey shows just what Texas ingenuity, grains, and temperatures can do. It was made from 100% Texas-grown roasted blue corn, an unusual mash bill for a bourbon, and aged for two years in a 60-gallon new American oak cask. It tastes like charred, buttery corn-on-the-cob dipped in maple syrup.
