Balcones Mirador Texas Single Malt Whisky – Limited

$169.00

ABV: 53.5%
‘Mirador’ is a second fill barrel malt profile made up of whiskies ranging from around two years to almost five years in age. Because all of the aging took place in used casks, the oak is less prominent. It’s also not as deeply coloured as most Balcones. Not surprisingly, the nose gives more of the malt instead of the wood that’s easily overdone in Bourbon whiskies. But, after all, this is single malt. There’s suggestions of orchard fruits, in particular pears and apples; Spices add depth while something fresher lurks beneath. Pure, supple and rounded, dried fruits are complemented by delicate astringency, before dovetailing oak shavings with fruit muesli and toasted cereal sweetness. Released to mark the 10th anniversary of the distillery, Mirador’s instant success made it an annual release – which makes sense – this is a relatively relaxed Balcones style you could routinely dive into. 53.5 % Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
