Baby Blue Corn Whiskey
Balcones Distilling LLC
Peggy Noe Stevens – 7.0
Nose: Corn husk with a bit of medicinal bang. Golden raisin and oak essence with slivered almonds and hay.
Palate: Corn oil wrap with apple and dried apricot. Faint vanilla and honey sweep dissolving into an earthy throw of wood.
Finish: Modest heat Small bites of citrus and cornbread with a toasty frame.
Comments: Would be a nice mixing partner with light syrups and herbaceous flavors. Would welcome a little more oomph.
Susan Reigler – 7.8
Nose: Freshly shucked corn and sweet vanilla with dry oakiness. Simple, but inviting.
Palate: Vanilla predominates with ripe apple and cornbread. Corn does not overwhelm. Sprinkling of white pepper and a drop of honey.
Finish: Warm and relatively short. Dries to a touch of sweet oak.
Comments: This is not a complex whiskey, but it is well made and the proof gives it a little heft without overheating it.
