Garrison Brothers Balmorhea Bourbon undergoes a unique double maturation process. It first spends four years maturing in new oak barrels made from Ozarks-grown wood, before a further year in new oak barrels made from Minnesota-grown wood. The bourbon, named after a swimming hole in west Texas, is bottled at 115 proof, and is now a core member of the Garrison Brothers lineup after an earlier experimental stint.

Tasting Notes

"Balmorhea is a beautiful mahogany in the glass. The nose is spicy, well laden with cloves and cinnamon along with a leathery earthiness. The palate is fiery and hot, with cedar wood, spearmint, vanilla Tootsie rolls and caramel-toffee reminiscent of Werther's hard candies. The lengthy finish showcases more leather and spice, as well as cigar box and menthol."
