    This drink is not malt whiskey, more like pure rum. :-(

    Fortunately, in the USA they are now also experimenting with different barrels. Whiskey and rum often deliver disappointing results. We cannot say that about these Balcones. Well done!

      As a lover of rum, I immediately recognize the sweet scent of sugars, banana, peach, cola, cola sweets. Yes, this is rum, but where's the whiskey?
    • Taste
      87 87
      Full solid dram. Alcohol is very present, perhaps too present. Furthermore, tropical fruit, brown sugar, spicy, ginger and wood. Actually quite a nice taste.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium dry spicy finish, brown sugar, oak. The rum comes back nicely in the finish.
