Balcones Lineage Texas Single Malt
American Single Malt — Texas, USA
Reviewed November 28, 2020 (edited March 25, 2021)
This is a quick hit review. Initial reaction from neck pour. I’ll come back later with detailed notes. Just wanted to acknowledge @Ctrexman @Richard-ModernDrinking . Consider yourselves officially influencers. I ran out and grabbed this after reading your high praise review. I henceforth proclaim this bottling, The Curious Case of Benjamin Burton because EVERYTHING about it is counterintuitive. Or, it may be more appropriately called Freaky Friday since I cracked this open yesterday, the last Friday in November 2020...and because clearly, an American single malt has switched bodies with a Scottish highlander. It noses like a bourbon and drinks like a scotch. It’s young juice but tastes older. It is aging backwards and tasting forward. It IS good whiskey PoD. Good whiskey it IS. Stay tuned for the upcoming breakdown.
