This new addition to the Balcones line offers a sumptuous nose, rich in aroma. Freshly cut leather, tobacco and cracked black pepper are held together by a fragrant Ceylon tea and sweet cedar oak. The palate offers toffee popcorn, sugar coated macadamia nuts and a touch of white pepper. As the nuttiness fades, a dark chocolate and charred caramel find their way onto the palate for a long harmonious finish.
*Balcones Texas Rye 100 launched at the distillery in March and is available in the US now. It will be available in the UK from October 2018.
