And The Answer Is …

And here is the answer to the last “what is it” post.

Confused? No, there was no whisky in that ice cream. I’m just trying to be allegorical here. I understand that unless you would taste or at least smell this Balcones Brimstone Texas Scrub Oak Smoked Corn Whisky, it is hard to pick up what the allegory is. This whisky had a perfect smoked bacon nose, and beautiful round palate – very different from traditional Islay smoke, like Caol Ila or Laphroaig, which have a lot more acidity and accompanying roughness with it. This Texas Whisky had bacon or slow smoked rib on the palate, full bodied with a  hint of sweetness.Very nice.

Did you get my allegory by now? Yep, it was bacon. Actually it was Maple-Bacon ice cream, and I have to admit, it was delicious.

Those of you with the ice cream making machines – give it a try. And for the rest of you – take my word for it, or visit Biga in San Antoino. Or at least have a glass of Balcones Brimstone. Cheers!
