Door number 19 of the Drinks by the Dram American Whiskey Advent Calendar is open and a sample of Balcones Texas Single Malt is revealed!
First I am getting a delicious creamy vanilla note on this nose together with a touch of wood spices, ginger, carrot cake, sultanas and cherries. Some raspberry jam and mocha are added to the sweet mix together with grilled squash and freshly made pasta… Some strange notes and combinations maybe so far from this nose but it does seem to work together and enjoying this nice warm, sweet and fruity feeling with a touch of spices very much.
From the palate I am getting a good bunch of different creamy and fresh fruit notes combined with black pepper, ginger, hint of cinnamon and many of the notes that I found on the nose before. Medium length finish with dried fruits, soft spices and vanilla. Nice dram for sure. Thanks #DrinksbytheDram for sharing this #WhiskeyAdvent !
