I think the made in Texas image has a certain level of appeal overseas. Even the Germans can pronounce J.R. Ewing.
We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.
I was surprised to see Balcones available in many shops in Edinburgh the last couple weeks. True Blue 100, Brimstone, and Baby Blue were stocked in at least 5 shops.
I will be picking up a bottle of Baby Blue tomorrow, hopefully, if the order comes in.
This will be my first experience with the Balcones line.
So I don't have to start a new thread, I will just mention here that we were recently named Whisky Magazine's 2014 Icons of Whisky – Craft Whisky Distillery of the Year.
This is actually the second time we gotten the award in the three years it has been running…
Congratulations! From the bottles I've purchased well deserved.
