Tahwahkaro Whiskey

Handcrafted from grain to glass in Texas, Tahwahkaro is an award-winning, well-balanced, whiskey. Each bottle is distilled, bottled, and hand-dipped in Palestine, Texas. Buy dad their cask strength or malt rye this year. The rye, reveals an explosion of unexpected flavors. The first sip is like a deep vanilla toffee mingled with pepper and spice but as it leaves, there’s this lingering taste of chocolate and buttered toast. Their cask strength is one of our favorites – soft up front and spicy on the back, with hints of licorice and lingering pepper and roasted caramel. Not to mention this punchy whiskey sits around 128 proof!

Balcones Lineage Single Malt Whiskey                  

Help dad branch out a bit from traditional scotches with Balcones Lineage. Texas-made, Lineage is made using a combination of Golden Promise malted barley from Scotland as well as malted barley grown in Texas. The spirit is matured both in refill oak, common in traditional Scottish Single Malts, and new oak barrels, as is the tradition with most American Whiskies. It’s the best of both worlds steeped in Scottish tradition and boasting the artisanship of trendy Texas distilleries. With a sweet nose of mulled cider, bruised bananas and peaches, tea tree and a taste of caramelized sweetness, soft oak, manuka honey, chestnuts and hint of red wine reduction, this whiskey will be sure to delight dad this year.
