Balcones Mirador Texas Single Malt
Mirador is a “second fill barrel malt profile” whisky. This bottling is made up of whiskies ranging from under 2 years to almost 5 years in age but because all of the aging took place in “used casks” the oak profile comes across much softer than some of our whiskies that are only half as old.
under-ripe and green notes of pear, green apple skins and flower stems open up to honeysuckle and fallen leaves before revealing rich notes of honey, brown sugar and soft suede leather
green fruit and light herbal aromas suggest green tea and honey with hints of fennel and lemongrass. As it breathes, the light fruit syrup impression concentrates and mingles with the soft spice notes to evoke apple pie with lemon curd, fruit salad with marshmallows and pecans and even a Rusty Nail with an accidental cucumber garnish
the finish begins where the rich sweetness gets lifted by the citrus twang, drying to notes of sandalwood and marmalade before finally offering Earl Grey tea
