Balcones Mirador Single Malt Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Balcones Mirador Single Malt Whisky

Handcrafted in small batches, Balcones Texas Single Malt Whisky is made from 100 percent malted Golden Promise barley. Golden Promise is an early-maturing spring barley that has a depth of flavor ideal for single malts. While it was popular in Scotland for many years, it gave way to cheaper barely that was higher in yield but lower in quality.After mashing the malted barley, they slowly ferment it at cool temperatures for seven days. Their fermentation process, which takes nearly twice as long as most other distilleries and is done at much lower temperatures, ultimately produces a richer, smoother whisky. After distillation, they age the whisky using a unique barreling process. "The main difference between Balcones and other single malts," they explain, "is the barreling. The cooperage we use and the care we put into blending and reblending the casks defines a lot of what makes our malt what it is. All of the barrels used are bespoke casks made from fully yard-aged oak with custom toast and char profiles."Crafted by Icons of Whisky America 2019s Master Distiller of the Year Jared Himstedt, Balcones Mirador Single Malt channels the richness and complexity of their award-winning flagship Texas Single Malt Whisky into a softer, more delicate dram. Its been aged in refill oak, making the barrels influence lighter and the overall profile less oaky, letting the spirit shine through in all its glory.Pick your bottle up today!
