    Does LostBottle lead the forum in self deletions?

    Re: Balcones: Next stop, world domination?

    I'll admit to being a noob Balcones fanboy. I dont want to pile on but the award is nice, but nothing to write home about. 7 other whiskeys out of the 130 awarded spirits, with only two others being straight bourbons. I'm sure there were a couple other straight bourbons that didn't get awards, but thats a totally unfair fight for the other types of spirits lumped into the category with straight bourbon.

    Back to being a fanboy. WANT WANT WANT that Balcones Bourbon.

    That's my same question on the Rumble Cask Reserve

    It is a good question... the Rumble Cask Reserve and regular Rumble are leagues apart from one another. The cask reserve deserves to see a regular spot on the shelf.

    We have a core portfolio to support. Though we'd love to have more of our bourbon and RCR available, we simply don't have the capacity right now. You can be certain that we'll have many more goodies to share once the new distillery is built.

    The bourbon was released in Texas in August, and hit Chicago and NYC last month. Most of the bottles went straight to on premise accounts.

    We just bottled our 5th Anniversary Brimstone and that will probably be sold directly from the distillery. There's a 5th Anniversary Single Malt in the works as well.

    What was the retail of the bourbon in the US? The UK website selling it works to about $190 with shipping. Hell of a novelty buy....but DAMN!

    Re: Balcones: Next stop, world domination?

    I have looked for Balcones solely because of what I have read of this board and because Winston is pretty up front about what they are trying to do. I am not sure that I have ever seen it on the shelves in Indiana. I keep looking. I would really love to find the bourbon.
