St George Baller American Single Malt Whiskey
The nose is utterly unique, lots of honeyed malt, an earthy pine quality, potpourri, and a lace of subtle wood smoke. Enveloping the whole thing is a unique plum sweetness and some vanilla bean, with the fruity umeshu growing in intensity as the whiskey opens in the glass. On the palate, the smoke is immediately noticeable, with bright notes of lemon peel, grilled peach, and orange zest up against savory saltwater taffy and chimney soot. Lovely balance on the finish with the smoke and citrus receding, while the stewed plums and oak remain.
