Balcones Texas "1" Single Malt is an award-winning whiskey crafted from 100% Texas barley. It undergoes a unique double-malting process and matures in new, charred oak barrels, resulting in a bold and flavorful single malt with a distinctly Texan character. Bottled at 92 proof (46% ABV), it offers a complex flavor profile with notes of honey, toasted nuts, baking spices, and a touch of smoke.
