Balcones Baby Blue Corn Whisky
Nose: Vanilla, caramel with oak notes and nuttiness.
Palate: Sweet coffee and caramel is met by the rich corn followed by heat from some spicier notes.
Finish: Medium length, with the sweetness and spice remaining to the end.
Overall: As the first Texan whisk(e)y and the first Blue Corn whisk(e)y, and with much of the distilling equipment having been hand built by Balcones’ Chip Tate, this is perhaps unsurprisingly somewhat unique but quite fascinating.
