St. George Spirits Baller Single Malt Whiskey, California, USA 750ml
$459.99 price per bottle
Baller Single Malt Whiskey is a new release with a crisp, dry, malty flavor profile. Distiller Lance Winters describes Baller as a California take on the Japanese spin on Scotch whisky.
Aged 3 Years.
We start with 100% American barley (predominately two-row pale malted barley, the remainder is lightly roasted). After distillation in our eau de vie pot stills, the whiskey is aged 3-4 years in used bourbon casks and French oak wine casks, as well as filtered through maple charcoal. We then finish the whiskey in casks that had held house-made umeshu (a Japanese style of plum liqueur we made entirely from California-grown ume fruit).
Crisp and dry, with a touch of malt sweetness. The smoky finish lingers and builds with each sip. We created this spirit with whiskey highballs in mind (hence the name Baller!). We also recommend it in place of Scotch whisky in a Bobby Burns or Rob Roy, or in a Boulevardier.
