    My first St. George's and I really love it. The character of the distillery is really exceptional and I must commit I have not had this character in the mouth and nose so it has definitely its own distillery character. Quite peaty but not like Islay a bit more decent more in the direction of Tobermory nevertheless unique by its own.
    Will not be my last St. George's for sure.

    SMWS Tasting Notes: A leafy unfolding at first nosing. Notes of petrichor, mercurochrome, vitamin tablets fizzing in ironing water, crushed aspirin muddled with TCP and a distant steaming mug of lapsang souchong. There's also cornflakes, smoked linens, a lick of camphor and some hefty raw peat notes. Dilution brings a wonderfully elegant mix of inkwells, carbon paper, smoked pot pourri and bouquet garni. The palate is surprisingly open and accommodating. Very peppery, lots of trampled ferns, green twigs, bouillon stock, smoked pub carpets, bitter pale ales and hot linoleum. Fennel seed, salted liquorice, mutton broth and pink sea salt. With water it all seems to unfold in luxurious style. Lots of oily sheep wool, sunflower seeds, liquid seasonings, tar liqueur, hot smoked paprika and strong earthy black teas.
