A very interesting whisky, the first to be legally distilled in Texas, made from blue corn (not sure what that is, but it sounds impressive) and, remarkably, being the recipient of a Double Gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Definitely one to watch.
Balcones Baby Blue Corn Whisky

Absolutely the worst swill I’ve ever drank! Not sure what crack the other reviewers are smoking Nose: Smells of corn, wax, acetone and baby vomit (very sour). Taste: baby vomit, horse urine, barn floor dirt.
I recently bought a bottle of this whiskey and brought it to a friend's house for a cigar night. I had never tried it before. I was thoroughly impressed with the range of aromas, and the taste was a bold, wonderfully flavorful, with a mild aftertaste of toasted corn mixed with a hint of honey. I am a Woodford Reserve drinker, and I will say there is a resemblance, but Baby Blue has some other characteristics I can't yet define. All good though. It was strong, but very pleasing, and I will buy it again. (went very well with the Upmann cigars, by the way)
Just awful, stay away. I'll deal with the leftovers ;-)
I usually drink single malt but sometimes buy something a bit different to try.Nose and taste distinct from other types of whisk(e)y - creamy mouth feel, slightly sweet and custardy, oats, hint of malted milk biscuits. Not complex and no long finish but slight new spirity aftertaste. Easy summer sipper.If you fancy a ?malternative? for this money I would instead recommend a rye whiskey. High West Rendez-Vous is my current favourite but can be hard to track a bottle down.
Utterly unique. The single greatest thing I have ever drunk. Words can do it no justice and it is impossible to describe. It is nothing short of miraculous.
