Balcones stakes their reputation on being unique which comes across in everything they do. This of course can make their whiskeys polarizing for their starkness compared to traditional tasting whiskeys. Lineage does a lot to soften this transition. It's still packed full of unusual but compatible flavors, yet this time they’ve toned things down a notch compared to the company’s other whiskeys.
