    Balcones: Next stop, world domination?

    Was able to sample then pull the trigger on True Blue Cask. Great split between the Baby Blue and the Texas SM. Glad I found some.

    So i do have to ask, is the product availability state by state dictated by what the distributor wants to carry? Walked into 3 different shops near Nashville, TN to find AMPLE Texas Single Malt and the CS True Blue (both at a very reasonable $ i might add) yet my local shop in Louisville gave me the "all i can get is X" speech when i asked why no CS and apologized for being stocked out of the Texas Single Malt (silly me, was trying to be loyal and not buy everything while out of town).

    Re: Balcones: Next stop, world domination?

    New to the forum here and just had to post that I purchased my first bottle of Balcones Single Malt a few days ago. I picked it up off the shelf and while reading the label noticed that it was bottled on 6/18/13, my 35th Bday! In the cart it went. Now I'm just trying to decide whether to open this one or by another. Cheers.

    I havent been able to find Balcones here in Knoxville, but a friend is driving some back from Texas for me. I cant wait to see what Texas is doing with whiskey.

    Re: Balcones: Next stop, world domination?

    Ralfy just published a vlog on Balcones, rating it an 88 grain whiskey mark. As usual he has a very entertaining presentation filled with interesting facts and opinions. I'm getting more excited about trying it myself next week. Worth a listen if you are interested at all in Balcones: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dO0-1mLIR9U

    I like Ralfy. I've been watching his videos for 3 years and learned a lot from him. Having said that, he has major biases. He tends to get carried away with whiskies from "independent"/"craft"/"artisan" producers by giving their releases extra marks whereas expressions from large producers get marks deducted.
