SCN Balcones 4YO Single Malt | Apple Fritter

Just as we are posting this #WhiskyAndDonuts pairing, we have learned that this incredible release from #SingleCaskNation has just sold out! 450 bottles within 49 minutes is jut … depressing but impressive as we could only dream for more of this juice for ourselves and more importantly, for all of you to enjoy and share with others!  Whether this speaks to the notoriety and quality of the #Balcones #distillery, the feverish culture of #Bourbon boombastic bottle allocation, or the obvious desire for something special and new from #whisky drinkers, today the peeps at SCN can feel like rockstars as they hit the nail on the head honing in on the ever growing notion that #American single malt is gaining moment in a tasty way and there is no stopping this US of A flavor train! 

Comprised of two delicious casks, this #singlemalt creation is simply a smile maker!  Providing such versatility in its youth, this 4 year old batch aspires to impress the full gamut.  You like stiff spirit forward sips?… You got it!  Savory sweet middles with supa dupa oily corners??… You got It! (*Roy Orbison, god rest his soul, had no influence in this pairing but we will still credit him for the ‘You got It!’) … Focus Danielson!  Now to the real winning factor of this pour… that #Texas heat! Like Joshua and Jason describes in the video included below, there is a difference between dryness and astringency, the ability to balance spirit and cask influence while sustaining a full spectrum of flavors is truly the key to making a killer experience and thanks to the Balcones distillery location, distilled enlightenment has been achieved!  We vow to do our best to share the goodness within this blue waxed vessel but we can’t make any promises!

Receiving this pre-release bottle prompted for a tasty match, so it was great to get back down to visit the new kids in town #JDFlannel in #SanJuanCapistrano #California.  With small batches released multiple times daily, we knew there was a freshy hoop to seal the deal.  Enter their Apple Fritter, a cloud ball of fluffy sugar and flour nests the perfectly spiced filling of tart apple chunks, sticky jam and complex sweetness, all topped with a light and tricky vanilla glaze! Honestly, with the complexity of this dram, we could have taken a ride with  different flavor profile #donut but the notes of stewed apple with cinnamon, cardamon, turmeric and clove had us reaching hastily to this one!

We can’t wait to see what’s next form the distilled brains at SCN, and we apologize for the tease as this is now an unattainable pairing due to the SELL OUT. But you can become a member today so you don’t miss out on the next release! There is sure to be more!
