My family did some Rusty nails with Balcones TX 1 Single Malt - and it holds up very well to the Drambuie, doesn't get overshadowed at all, and while it changes the vibe of the drink in general, it's still quite delicious.
Same goes for The Single Malt in Eggnog - gotta say, this one wowed me. I loved it. We also tried OGD114, Russel's Reserve Rye, and Knob Creek - and while the OGD114 was damn good, I preferred the TX1 blend - again, the stronger, more unique flavor profile of the Balcones really held up well to the eggnog, and the already existing cinnamon & vanilla flavors of the Malt added a lot to the experience.
My Scotch drinking friends use that for eggnog and I can say it works pretty well.
We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.
Despite my current feelings about Balcones, I still could not leave this one sitting on the shelf.
One bottle gets kinda lonely; he needs some friends.
I'm really bummed that I missed out on the Balcones Event today. I live too far north of Dallas to have ventured out today. If I could've made it to Plano, then I could've joined my buddies for the trip to Waco. I was really hoping for a bottle of Brimstone Resurrection, but it just wasn't meant to happen. I hope others were successful with the journey to the end of the rainbow.
