Introducing Balcones Texas Rye Bottled In BondIntroducing Balcones Texas Rye Bottled In Bond

When our Rye hit four years old, we were pleasantly surprised by the density and clarity this benchmark revealed, with darker chocolates, more acidic dried fruits, and a refreshing solvency. We have become so familiar with the dance we have learned to step in our intense Texas climate, that new plateaus of elegance and balance in our spirits are much appreciated and hard won.

Tasting Notes

A Texas Twist

ON THE NOSE, Texas Rye Bottled in Bond balances warm sun tea, candied fennel, and spruce tips before cooling notes of melted mint chip ice cream and raspberry glaze.

ON THE PALATE, it begins with graham cracker crust, dark chocolate espresso bean, and cardamom before well-articulated notes of carrot frond, cedar chest, and apricot preserves. Nutella and blackberry jam on rye toast linger for the finale.
