This, Garrison Brothers Balmorhea Bourbon Whiskey; award-winning Texas straight bourbon is a bold but smooth whiskey. Aged for a total of five years in new American white oak barrels, it boasts a complex flavor profile with notes of caramel, butterscotch, and vanilla.

Description

The Garrison Brothers Balmorhea Bourbon takes you on a journey through a Texas sweet shop, all thanks to its unique double-barreling process. The initial four years in new American white oak barrels infuse the whiskey with classic bourbon notes of caramel, butterscotch, and vanilla. These are expected flavors, but where Balmorhea truly shines is the additional year it spends in a second new charred oak barrel. This extra charring unlocks a wave of sweeter, candy-like aromas and tastes.

Imagine biting into a frozen fudgesicle bar – that burst of icy sweetness translates to the palate with Balmorhea. Hints of amaretto coffee add a touch of nuttiness and a subtle bitterness, like dark chocolate shavings. The rich, syrupy sweetness continues with notes of sticky buns, their warm, doughy character perfectly complemented by the pecan brittle’s hint of toasty nuttiness. Don’t be surprised if a wave of thick, white chocolate syrup washes over you too.

Despite its sweetness, Balmorhea isn’t cloying. The oak provides a subtle tannic structure, like a whisper of black tea, that balances the sugary notes. A surprising touch of salinity emerges on the finish, adding a savory complexity and a lingering memory of the Texas heat that inspired the whiskey’s name.
