TX Whiskey adds new product line, releases rye whiskey

Rye is known as a hearty crop, so it makes sense that Texas would make a hearty rye whiskey. The makers of TX Whiskey and...

The makers of TX Blended Whiskey and TX Straight Bourbon on Oct. 19 announced the launch of two new products—TX Straight Bourbon Tawny Port Finish and TX Straight Bourbon PX Sherry Finish. Both Tawny Port and PX Sherry are distinctly different sweet wines that bring unique flavor profiles to each expression.

“To create TX Straight Bourbon Tawny Port Finish, we took four year old TX Straight Bourbon and finished it for six months in 10 year old Tawny Port casks from the Douro Valley of Portugal,” says Master Distiller Rob Arnold. “Made from French White Oak—and specifically the species Quercus robur—the casks were used to age Tawny Port for 10 years before they were emptied, sent to our distillery, and filled with our bourbon.”

Tawny Port possesses caramel, dark fruit, and nutty flavors, and as the bourbon rested in these casks, it picked-up rich nuances from the port still locked in the oak. With a proof of 101.6, TX Straight Bourbon Tawny Port Finish brings forth flavors of dark cherry, candied walnuts, rich caramel and Christmas spices.

“For TX Straight Bourbon Whiskey PX Sherry Finish, we took fully matured four year old TX Straight Bourbon and finished it for eight months in 20 year old Pedro Ximénez sherry casks from Jerez, Spain,” said Arnold. “PX Sherry is one of the sweetest types of sherry wines available. The white grapes used to make PX Sherry are picked very ripe or dried after harvest to concentrate the sugars. We are fortunate in that our partners were able to transport the sherry casks to our distillery in Texas just four weeks after they were emptied in Spain.”

The PX Sherry casks were made from the American White Oak species known as Quercus alba, which typically imparts a sweeter profile than other oak species. This, coupled with the rich flavors infused into the bourbon from the sherry still locked in the oak, gives TX Straight Bourbon PX Sherry Finish—also at 101.6 proof—a sweet and warming profile, with notes of chocolate, baking spices, apricot and maple.

TX Straight Bourbon Tawny Port Finish and TX Straight Bourbon PX Sherry Finish will both be available to purchase for $64.99 at Texas retailers and at Whiskey Ranch, in Fort Worth.

Established in 2010 by Leonard Firestone and Troy Robertson, and now part of the Pernod Ricard spirits family,
