St. George 11 Year K&L Single Barrel, Cask Strength Single Malt Whiskey 750ml (2 bottle limit)

SKU #1061616

The Bay Area's beloved Alameda distillery has teamed up with K&L to bring you one of the most delicious and unique whiskies ever created. Made from 100% barley, this malt was aged seven years in bourbon cask and finished for an additional four years in apple brandy barrels. Bottled at cask strength, the result is a brain-tickling combination of rich malty goodness and spicy barrel flavors intertwined with tart apple notes on the finish. Sound crazy? It is, and that's why it had the attention of the entire room at this year's WhiskyFest in San Francisco. If we could have taken pre-orders that evening, it would have sold out on the spot. We spent months twisting the arms of distillers Lance Winters and Dave Smith before they would agree to let us have this prized possession; a whiskey they had been nursing along since infancy. This is an unheralded release from St. George and there is not much of it, so there is a one bottle limit per person. The 11 year will easily go down as one of the tastiest, most sought-after, and unique whiskies we have ever carried. -David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer

If you only buy one upper end spirit this year I would recomend that it be the St. George K&L Single Malt. This is a wonderful expressive whiskey that is full of energy and life. It has bright malt flavors that are enhanced by the apple brandy finish, which povides hints of apples and spice.

Beyond amazing. This year I tasted over a hundred whiskeys at Whiskey Fest. Unfortunately this single barrel was the first one I tried, and while many were excellent, they all seemed to pale in comparison. Lance Winters and Dave Smith continue to amaze and impress my palate. My advise, buy it before you kick yourself, because there will never be another bottle like it.
