Handcrafted in small batches, Balcones Texas Single Malt Whisky is made from 100% malted Golden Promise barley. Golden Promise is an early-maturing spring barley that has a depth of flavor ideal for single malts. While it was popular in Scotland for many years, it gave way to cheaper barley that was higher in yield but lower in quality.

After mashing the malted barley, they slowly ferment it at cool temperatures for seven days. Their fermentation process, which takes nearly twice as long as most other distilleries and is done at much lower temperatures, ultimately produces a richer, smoother whisky. After distillation, they age the whisky using a unique barreling process. "The main difference between Balcones and other single malts," they explain, "is the barreling. The cooperage we use and the care we put into blending and reblending the casks defines a lot of what makes our malt what it is. All of the barrels used are bespoke casks made from fully yard-aged oak with custom toast and char profiles."

What makes the Rum Cask Single Malt expression special, is that the casks used for finishing used to hold their very own Texas Rum. It's been aged for at least 35 months and bottled at cask strength, making for a super-bold, rich, fruity, and spicy drink. It has garnered numerous awards, including multiple "Double Gold" medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition as well as New York World Wine & Spirits Competition.
