Garrison Brothers Balmorhea Bourbon is a Texas-born whiskey that embodies the bold and robust spirit of the Lone Star State. Named after the famous Balmorhea Springs in West Texas, this bourbon delivers a distinctive taste profile that reflects the territory of its origin.

The bourbon pours a dark amber hue. Very rich looking.  Its color suggests depth and complexity, inviting anticipation of the Texas flavors to come.

Upon nosing, you’re greeted with a bouquet of oak and spices with hints of caramel and vanilla, creating a harmonious blend of sweetness and warmth.

The first sip reveals a full-bodied whiskey with a velvety smoothness and very mild for its 115 proof. Rich caramel, pecan and toffee flavors dominate, followed by a wave of baking spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. Oak undertones provide structure and depth, contributing to its double barreled process.  Despite its potency, there’s a pleasant balance between sweetness and spice, making each sip a delight.

The finish is long and satisfying, with lingering notes of caramel and toasted oak with a smooth chocolate bar taste. The whiskey’s high proof lends a robustness to the finish, ensuring a memorable conclusion to the tasting experience, but without the burn.

Overall, Garrison Brothers Balmorhea Bourbon is a testament to the innovation and dedication of its makers. With all of the awards it has won, it stands as a shining example of Texas whiskey at its finest. Whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in your favorite cocktail, this bourbon is sure to leave a lasting impression.
