Balcones Brimstone was first released back in May 2011. The whiskey undergoes purification through fire, a Texas oak fire that is. Rather than using Scottish peat smoke, Chip Tate of Balcones smokes this one of a kind whisky with sun baked Texas scrub oak using his own secret process (he actually smokes the whiskey, not the grain/ corn). The result is a whisky full of fresh youthful corn and light fruit notes married with a bold smokiness that will take you to a back country Texas BBQ. Aromas of masa, Texas campfire, and deep stone fruit tempered with an almost salty goodness. Bold yet balanced; Brimstone is yet another Texas first from Balcones Distillery.
