Balcones True Blue Cask Strength
Balcones // Texas, USA
Balcones True Blue Cask Strength is a special annual release whiskey bottled straight from the barrel. This non-chill-filtered corn whiskey is distilled from roasted blue corn and made without additives in the distillery's hometown of Waco, Texas.
CornMash bill at least 80% corn, no requirement to age, but if aged, must be in either new un-charred oak barrels or used oak barrels.
"Balcones True Blue Cask Strength deftly combines richness and spice. It lands on the palate with a winey richness and oak vanillins, and the addition of a little water brings out notes of cocoa and nutmeg. A slight medicinal note comes out on the finish. It's a unique, strong, and very interesting whiskey from Balcones that rewards exploration."
