    18 months? Holy Sch ... I think what they make is cool! Great that finally a real distillery with Scottish equipment in Germany is available.
    • Nose
      Lots of malt and new make, grainy, floral, sourdough, noticeable youth, light smoke
    • Taste
      Very sweet, vanilla, spicy, sparkling, a bit youthful, malty, lemon peel, light smoke
    • Finish
      Youth, creamy vanilla, spice, sweet meadow herbs

    This is really a direction that I like in pure ex-Bourbon Fassreifungen, nice fruity, neat vanilla. Good drinkable and this young funny miscarriage, which I often find in other German whiskeys, is far and wide not felt. Let's see how it goes on.
    • Nose
      80 80
      The basic character of the New Make is still clearly visible, fruity, malty and the dominant pear note, this is now also vanilla, overall creamier than the New Make, the Schnapsige is now significantly reduced, you can see now in which direction this go and does not have the feeling to drink a better Williams, a hint of banana I mean to smell, you can tell, of course, that was not long in the barrel, after the first sip come in the nose again new flavors , nutty and actually some milk chocolate (supplement: more Ovaltine)
    • Taste
      80 80
      In the mouth, the influence of Fassreifung is even clearer, very creamy, also massive pear, a lot of vanilla, incredibly supple and pleasant drinkable, the second sip, the flavors are better to grasp, even here what I had in my nose already with milk chocolate, But it can also be in the direction of Ovaltine, yes, rather
    • Finish

      Vanilla, some fruit bowl and pear juice, actually shorter than I had the New Make at the very back of the nose and slightly nutty

    • Nose
      First impression: amazing juvenile-impetuous fruitiness, massive sweet tones, first between honey and bright fruit - ripe pear stands out clearly - then comes apple compote. A little alcohol is hidden behind the pericarp and dares to emerge a little bit after a few minutes (we are talking about 47 percent by volume). Later comes a little caramel (the burnt-out ex-Bourbon Quarter Casks leave gruüen). OK, I can not (yet) find oak, but the guy is just too young for a good 18 months ...
    • Taste
      The unbridled, a little oily sweetness continues and immediately fills the entire mouth. I mean to drink sweetened fruit salad;) caramel notes are there too. The alcohol does not have a chance (yet), it's a bit titillating when swallowed, but I would not have typed 47% in life. The youth dominates clearly. Second sip: Yes, now the alcohol speaks up and takes a breath in his mouth and throat. Lo and behold: Now I have a little bit of bitterness from the oak.
    • Finish
      Medium long, very nice and pleasing, mostly sweet - delicate oak note.

    Description of the distillery:
    THE SPIRIT OF ST. KILIAN - Barrel-aged malt brandy, single malt, 47% vol. Our first barreled single malt is ready: THE SPIRIT OF ST. KILIAN. Actually, it should also be one of our characterful, unconventional whiskeys. But because his taste is already so inspiring, we thought: why wait? THE SPIRIT OF ST. We make KILIAN just like the whiskey that matures in all our barrels: With a lot of passion, determination and perseverance. Best ingredients as always provided. In this case: Pale Pilsener brewing salt and special Scottish yeast for a mild but expressive taste. Fortunately, Dan Garrison, senior executive of the Texas Garrison Brothers Distillery ( the # 1 distillery in the US ), not only shared our philosophy for exceptional handmade spirit with us - but also some of his American Quarter Casks , In six of these small bourbon wooden barrels THE SPIRIT OF ST. KILIAN - for more than 18 months. Not quite whiskey yet, but just as delicious: very mild, aromatic, fruity and harmonious. For our fans a first look into the future of our whiskey, which we all have to wait until at least 2019. THE SPIRIT OF ST. KILIAN: - distilled as a single malt in April 2016 - matured for 18 months - in American Quarter Casks by Garrison Brothers Distillery (# 1 in the US) - limited to 1,100 bottles

    Still very young and sparkling on the palate. Has some fruit brandy, not necessarily my case ... maybe then in a few years?
    • Nose
      Fresh fruity, malty?
    • Taste
      Young and sparkling, malt and lemon, a little out of round;
    • Finish
      Km, fruit brandy note?

  6. Noface83 scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    Nose: the new make is still quite loud (but that was to be expected with an 18 month old spirit), bright fruits (pear and mirabelle plums), some aniseed and caraway, lots of vanilla ice cream, malty sweetness, slightly sourish wood. The influence of the barrel is clearly noticeable but not yet dominant - nor determines the (delicious) New Make the character of this bottling.
    Taste: strong (47% and youth are noticeable), becomes very soft and creamy with notes of caramel candy, pear compote with vanilla ice cream, again this typical malty sweetness and back in the short finish a pleasant cumin seasoning and yes a touch of oak. The vanilla and creaminess is the most striking thing that has brought the Quarter Casks in the spirit. He is very delicious and tasty for so young stuff.
    Jo - they are on a very good way. I hope, however, that they will not beat everything at the age of three but mature a bit longer. This one needs his 5 years to be really great!
