Balcones Distilling Texas Rye

Too Young Balcones Distilling Texas Rye

I've had a few good Balcones lately, so picked this up locally. 100% rye, aged "at least 24 months." Neat in a Glencairn. Nose: Nice notes of chocolate, tobacco, hay, grain. But also a bit of a chemical…

Balcones True Blue

Texas Blue Corn Balcones True Blue

I've been wanting to track this particular whiskey down for a while now. I'm a sucker anytime a distillery experiments with ingredients that stray from the norm. This Balcones is made from 100% Texas…

Arran 10 Year Old

Back to basics with Arran Arran 10 Year Old

As most of you know, I'm a big Arran fan. I've tried almost every Arran I've been able to find here in the states. I've been lucky enough to find some single casks and independent bottlings lingering…

Batch 13 Laphroaig Cask Strength 10 Year Old

A different take from JD Jack Daniel's Triple Mash

Arran The Bothy Quarter Cask

New Arrans Pt. 2 Arran The Bothy Quarter Cask

Part 2 of our head-to-head with the new and similarly priced Arrans. This one is not necessarily new, as the sherry cask is, but it's new for me since I never saw it in it's old packaging, and it sits…

Arran The Bodega Sherry Cask

New Arrans Pt. 1 Arran The Bodega Sherry Cask

Picked up both the new Sherry cask Arran and the Quarter cask. It's a lazy Sunday, hot and humid outside, so staying in and watching some NFL Pre-season and figured it's a good time to do these head-to…
