St. George American Single Malt (Lot 19), 43%

Price: $100 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

The nose is light, floral, and hoppy; sweet on top, with hints of licorice, stone fruit, bubble gum, and honeydew. The palate is also light, with a silky texture that offers notes of chocolate-covered marshmallows, plums, nectarines, and hot cocoa with whipped cream. Smooth and balanced on the finish, if perhaps a bit light, with lingering hoppiness, toasted grain, and cigar wrapper, sweetened by vanilla and tropical fruit notes. (3,300 bottles)
