    ive got a bottle of the Brimstone and it has a very smokey taste. its live oak smoked and its similar to a smokey scotch. ive had the the blue too and its pretty fuggin good and i need to grab a bottle of single malt bc its gotten rave reviews. at goody goody in dallas most of the Balcones bottles are about $57ish per.

    i've tried almost all their products and they're top notch. the single malt is excellent. the brimstone is too smoky for me though. it tastes like my clothes smell the next morning after hanging out around a campfire all night.

    Balcones

    Hey Everyone, Stephen Germer here, co-founder of Balcones Distillery. Thanks for all of the kind words! We've had a great couple of weeks with the UK Big Award and New York Times article yesterday. Couple points of interest for Longhorns:
    Since my wife is a Longhorn, she claims we're Longhorn owners, not Baylor owners...and through the years I've learned my wife is always right....
    Secondly we actually truck up water from an artesian spring in Austin to our Waco distillery to cut the whisky, so there's a little Austin in every bottle.
    Lastly, since I live in Austin, I want to thank the community here for embracing us as their own...it's our biggest Texas market!
    I hope all of you will come see us for a tour and, lest I pander too much, and since a Baylor friend invited me on here, cheers and Sic'Em bears!

    Which of your products would you recommend for a virgin scotch drinker?

    This thread makes me want to support your establishment...

    I know we're in D.C. but I need to ask Chip (my partner and head distiller) where you can find us. You can call the distillery at 254-755-6003 and find out too, but I'll post it as soon as I get some names for you.

  17. #17
    the lowest proof whisky we have is the Baby Blue, but it's a blue corn whisky. Our Balcones Single Malt 1 is the only "scotch" we make. Outside of Scotland you'll see scotch called "single" or "blended malt whisky". My only hesitation is the high proof of our single malt (106) , as you're probably used to lower proof bourbons (80) , but that's what a little purified water is for:-) The Single Malt is the one that just won the competition referenced earlier in the thread. Hope you enjoy.

    Definitely want to try it, your single sounds like it's the one for me, but I'm always interested in trying new things and blue corn whiskey just sounds cool.

    Thanks for stopping by, WhiskyKayak, best of luck to you and yours.

    Hope this helps...This is from our brand ambassador Winston:
    I have a friend out in DC and he claims to have seen our products at:
    Harry's of Southeast: http://www.yelp.com/biz/harrys-reser...its-washington
    Schneider's of Capitol Hill: http://cellar.com/
    and
    Pearson's on Wisconsin: http://www.pearsonswine.com/
    I'm working with the distributor to get a list of more accounts as well.
    If they have a preferred liquor retailer that they frequent, they can request to order Balcones through Republic, our distributor for DC.

    Just curious, does Baylor officially claim a world renowned whisky maker as an alum? I'd love to see them recognize his achievement for the Baptist lulz.

    if you want to have balcones in a bar, drinkwell on northloop has a good selection at a good value.

    my wife got me Baby Blue for my first fathers day last year. Good woman. And her Horchata in Balcones Rumble nog was the recipe that inspired her horchata milk stout that hops & grain just brewed for their greenhouse series. And to tie everything all back together, drinkwell provided hops & grain a spent Rumble barrel to age her horchata milk stout in for a special release sometime in the future /csb

    Balcones $#@!ing owns. Its the whiskey of choice in our household of beer nerds.

    The single malt is currently sold out from all the Specs stores in the greater Houston area. I got two of the last few bottles from a store out in Katy.

    Ha! The link on your site took me to the Young's Market Company site with Vern and Chris Underwood on the front page. Vern was my first Little League coach when I was in 3rd grade. /csb.

    Thanks FHETW....I just took your advice and made a shameless post on Reddit.....great call:-)

    Also, for everyone wanting more specific retailer info, Winston@balconesditilling.com is ready to track down product for you Shaggs...we can only sell to distributors, but we'll track down where they're placing it for you best we can,
