Lost Lantern is a non-distiller producer (NDP) that sources their whiskey from various distilleries from around the country. While this is nothing new, what differentiates them is that they hand select the barrels and either create new blends combining whiskeys from multiple distilleries, or in their Single Cask series, highlight a particular distillery with the name of the distillery on the bottle’s label.

Part of their Summer 2022 Collection, Single Cask #10 is an extraordinarily unique whiskey from St. George Spirits located in Alameda, California. Founded in 1982 by Jörg Rupf, St. George Spirits was the first small American distillery since Prohibition according to their website. The distillery makes a variety of spirits including gin, vodka, absinthe, fruit brandy, American whiskey, single malts, and more. In the bourbon community, they are probably most well known for Breaking & Entering Bourbon and American Whiskey.

When it comes to unique flavor, this whiskey is off the charts. Oftentimes flavor notes are representations of a whiskey’s flavor profile, echoes of subtle flavors that when taken together form a specific way to describe it. In this case, the flavors are upfront and easy to identify. Floral, grassy, and tropical with fruit, clove, and pale malted barley notes, the flavors are rich and the whiskey is full bodied. It will not be for everyone, and to that end, it’s part of a very small 215 bottle release. If you’re adventurous and like the sound of this whiskey, prepare to be rewarded in the best of ways.
