Whisky Reviews for Balcones Texas Single Malt Whisky
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.41 points
- 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?
Full solid dram. Alcohol is very present, perhaps too present. Furthermore, tropical fruit, brown sugar, spicy, ginger and wood. Actually quite a nice taste.
Medium dry spicy finish, brown sugar, oak. The rum comes back nicely in the finish.
