    Tonight's dram is one of the most polarizing American Craft Whiskeys out there! The St George Baller is distilled, aged and bottled by St George Spirits out of Alameda CA. Here is a summary of the Whiskey: 100% American barley (mostly two-row pale malted barley, rest lightly roasted) Aged 3-4 years in used bourbon casks and French oak wine casks before finished in casks that held umeshu (Japanese style of plum liqueur) that is also made by St. George Filtered through maple charcoal Let's dive into the tasting: On the palette it's got a nice mouthfeel with dark plums and slight smoke leading the way. Some brine, seaweed and smoked meats. The finish adds some honey, apples and black tea. To quote one of my wife's favorite songs, it's a beautiful disaster!! It's definitely one of the most unique Whiskeys out there and one I enjoy! It's not for everyone but for those adventurous souls give it a try! Cheers All!

    Sweet up front balances spice on the back end nicely. Floral.

    I was really excited about this one having heard many good things. The nose on the Baller is extremely unique. There are surprising notes of lychee, black tea, very light vanilla, and a background note of fireplace ash. The palate is where this whiskey really takes a hard left turn. The lychee notes on the nose come through again, but are quickly overwhelmed by a strange savory note landing somewhere between that savory Japanese rice tea, dried seaweed, and stale Bud Light. The ashy notes are rather dominant here as well. Rather than the rich smoky notes of a nice Islay scotch, the ashy palate comes across like an old ash tray, again with those strange stale beer notes. Like the smell of a slightly sketchy night club right around closing time. The finish is straight seaweed and cigar ash. I love a good savory, smoky whiskey but the Baller, while interesting, does not agree with my palate in any way shape or form. Definitely try this before you buy it.

    Neat. First taste of this. Plums hum from the glass immediately. Dark fruits dominate and the wine influence comes out more and more. Oh that is interesting. I’ve never had anything quite like this. Plum wine comes to mind especially due to that sweetness. Vanilla and smoke hidden beneath the fruit. I’ve been dedicated to bourbon for some time so this is me spreading my wings a bit in a different category. I like this a lot. Completely different spectrum of flavors than I am used to, but still inviting and delicious. A refreshing, fruity treat that would go well around a fall campfire.
