A very interesting single malt American whisky from Texas, this was distilled at Balcones and was "yard-aged" in ex-bourbon American oak before bottling in 2012. Expect huge flavours from this one... Nose: Freshly baked banana bread with undertones of honey and vanilla and just the faintest hint of cedar wood at the back. Suggestions of roasted chestnuts and heavy cream.Palate: Ester-y with apple and orchard fruits. Brown sugar makes an appearance and transforms into molasses.Finish: Warm, woody spices and some breadiness, but not necessarily maltiness, completes this luscious single malt.
