Balcones Blue Corn Whiskey (One Off)
This dram was tasted as part of the 12 Drams of Xmas series
Day 12 is a cracker of a dram from Sean Foushee (@WhiskyMarks) and the WhiskyMarks blog
Sean is located out in Texas and managed to get this dram from Chip at Balcones. They had wandered around the distillery warehouse and came across this cask which chip bottled a single bottle of for Sean. The rest of the cask is still to be bottled so this dram is technically never goign to be the same and a complete one off
I don't really know anything about American whiskey so i plumped for one i want to try and Jim Beam Red Stag as i know it has cherry flavours.
huge fruity notes, cherries especially, strawberry jam and sweet wine
oak and definite wood influence, lots of sweetness and a great cherry and jam flavour
warming and fruity, with oak influence
