St. George Baller Single Malt, 47%
Price: $65 ● Issue: Fall 2017 ● Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth
Hugely floral and perfumed on the nose, with rose petals, violet candies, and dried orange peel. This is the Gewürztraminer of American single malts—sweet lychee, laced with sachet aromas that explode as if opening Grandma's dresser drawer. The palate is more tropical; dried pineapple, canned peach syrup, and spice. This could be polarizing, but it's utterly captivating and worth a try.
