    Re: St George Single Malt

    I love scotch.....I love bourbon.....I love rye......St George's is the only whiskey I have ever given away (I gave it to another SB'er 2 years ago and I understand the bottle is still pretty full...obviously this is not a 2011 bottle....it was from the first release...I forget the year. To me it is a spirit that doesn't know what it wants to be. St. George's made Eau de Vie before they tried a single malt and I think it ends up being in the middle of the 2 spirits. I have met some folks that rate it "not bad", but I'm to the point now I won't even taste it if its offered to me.....but that's just my taste.

    Re: St George Single Malt

    This whiskey has gotten MUCH better since the initial releases; less spirited, better integrated malt/wood character, etc.

    That being said, still fairly expensive, and still needs more age.

    St George Single Malt

    I'm interested in this so excuse the thread resurrection. Anybody try Batch 12? It's supposed to be composed of different barrels of varying ages (I think I read 5-12yrs somewhere).

    For our current release (Lot 12), Dave ventured deep into the far corners of our whiskey library and drew from 15 different barrels averaging about eight years old (as young as five and as old as twelve years old).

    It's interesting you of all people replied to my query because it was a choice between the St. George Single Malt vs. the Balcones Single Malt for me.

    Nah, I can get it for you for a mere $349.99 in Atlanta. Well, I could. Not sure it is still there. Although it seems likely...

    Such a deal!

    I'll be in the SF Bay Area in April, probably make my way over to St George's at some point and hopefully get to try it for free

    Re: St George Single Malt

    Had a free sample of this last night. I know, lucky to say the least.

    Hard to describe, as it doesn't really fit into a "category".

    The pear really comes through on the nose. It's really a delight to nose.

    Viscous in the mouth, coats throughly. Sweet, fruity, light.

    it's good, but it's not in my line of taste. But I was happy to down the sample I was poured.
