Tasting Notes

SBC #33 Balcones Blue Corn Barrel Proof - This barrel was made up of different barrels that were married into a barrel that previously held Buffalo Trace Bourbon

Nose:  Oak | Vanilla | Corn | Twinge of brown sugar | Classic scents that aren’t the corn forward blast you’d expect

Palate: Sweet sugars | Oak | Vanilla | Baking Spice | Light Corn | Wonderful balance of sweet and spicy

Finish: Baking spice | Dry underlying vanilla | Leather | Tobacco leaf | Earthy | Bold dry oak | Dry flavors interweave with undertones of sweetness as the sip fades


SBC #34 Balcones Rye Barrel Proof - This rye was aged in new American oak with a toast profile that often exhibits and imparts ‘heavy smoke’

Nose: Roasted malt | Syrup | Baking chocolate | Hint of mint 

Palate: Heavy chocolate malt | Baking chocolate | Spicy Mexican chocolate | A chocolate lovers delight

Finish: Chocolate malt | Chocolate syrup | Hint of oak | Lingering warming rye spice 


SBC #35 Balcones Single Malt Barrel Proof - This distillation was the first run after a Peated Malt run. It was aged in a used European oak cask (before this malt it previously held malt, and before that Balcones Rum) 

Nose: Light malt | Canned peaches | Hay | Graham Cracker | Touch of smoke | Light overall

Palate: Malt | Oak | Light caramel | Heavy baking spice | Nice mouthfeel

Finish: Oak | Light leather | Hints of malt | Simmering heat
