Balcones Texas Rye Cask Strength
Balcones // Texas, USA
This limited edition cask strength bottling, released mid-March 2018, is one of several expected releases for 2018 in honor of the distillery's 10th anniversary. It is made from 100% rye including raw elbon grain from north and northwest Texas as well as crystal, chocolate, and roasted rye varieties. Bottled at 62.3% ABV, and aged for a minimum of 30 months.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
"Apples and orchard fruits lead on the nose, with well-worn suede, bitter coffee, and spice. A big palate is pleasantly smooth for the proof, with tannic dry oak, baking chocolate, and a hefty portion of rye spice. A full finish delivers a warm embrace, with baking spices, oak, and vanilla backed by notes of black pepper and spearmint. Add water to bring out more rich, vanilla sweetness alongside still powerful rye spice."
Full Bodied & Vanilla
