    Jorg Rupf and the folk at St George Spirits (the same distillery and many of the same people who make Hanger One vodka) produce this most unusual Californian whiskey by distilling smoky brown ale in a small copper pot still. This is then aged in re-fill American whiskey and French oak casks.

    Review and Tasting

    Sampled on 08/08/2011

    Appearance

    Pale gold in colour.

    Aroma

    Very interesting and most un-whiskey-like nose of lychees, white peach skin and quince – almost Sauternes-like fruit.

    Taste

    Drier than the nose suggests with boiled blackcurrant fruit and smoky malty notes.

    Aftertaste

    Finishes with smoky flint notes. Probably best drunk at the end of a meal.
