Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 46%
A Texas Pot Still Bourbon from Balcones distillery, which has really spread its wings since the departure of controversial founder Chip Tate in 2014.
Balcones Texas Pot Still Bourbon is one of a very small number of bourbons made entirely on pot stills, and is bottled at the higher than usual strength of 46%. A young, strong yet elegant bourbon, displaying less sweetness than most standard-issue bourbons, with delightful herbal, spicy aromas and flavours.
