The Texas Rum, produced at the Balcones distillery in the USA, is a pot still-distilled molasses rum, bottled at cask strength with a 58.5% ABV. This American rum has a distinct smell of nutty, honey, spice, woody and vanilla notes. With flavors of honey, woody, vanilla, caramel, and roasted, it offers a unique and flavorful tasting experience. Users generally find it to be a well-rounded and balanced rum with a notable Eiche and roasted character, pleasant aromas, and good integration of alcohol.

How does this rum taste?

The Texas Rum is a bold, complex spirit that belies its 2-year aging with notes of wood, caramel, and tropical fruits. While alcohol is prominent, it's well-integrated, though some find it a touch dry. It's a surprising, worthy sipper.

“Despite just 24 months in the barrel, the barrel has worked extremely due to the extreme tenperature differences in Texas. Exciting rum.”

“Here Batch 21-1 at 58.5%, the second of my two souvenir bottles from San Francisco. Nose: of course almost identical to Batch 20-1.Powerful and complex with wood, vinegar, caramel, tropical fruit, molasses and a nice leather-tobacco-smoke blend. Very pleasant on the nose, encourages tasting.A bit finer on the palate than Batch 20-1. more licorice, more cassis, but also a bit shorter in appearance. Still strong oak and nicely toasty. A real positive surprise for me. Only 2 years aging, but under the blazing Texas sun. Alcohol very well integrated in both. Lots of flavors on the nose and palate. The must have tried in any case!”

“Alcohol unfortunately not quite as well integrated. Overall, significantly less fruit notes and generally complexity compared to the new batch with 51.9% and for me personally too dry, a bit too bitter and too astringent. Has somehow something straw-like in the finish...”
