    Description of the distillery:
    The Spirit of St. Kilian - Batch 4: Now it's Peaty "The Peat Marriage" is the first smoky " Spirit of St. Kilian " of our whiskey distillery. The fourth batch of our barrel-aged malt brandy was created after a complex recipe of several New Makes and matured for at least 16 months in seven different oak barrels. For a balanced smokey and fruity-malty taste, we have combined two types of New Make - also called Dogs -: Non-smoky malt we have distilled to our White Dog. Over peat-dried malt to our Turf Dog. The smoky Turf Dog then matured in two different barrel types: The Virgin Oak Cask, a 190-liter barrel of American white oak, gives our spirit powerful woody and spicy notes. Another Turf Dog stored in four former Bourbon barrels. These Quarter Casks are from the well-known Texas Garrison Brothers Distillery, hold only 55 liters and can be created in our spirit after a very short time wonderful whiskey flavors of vanilla, honey and marzipan. In homage to the Scottish Whiskey Makers of Islay, to whom we feel very attached, we have also added another "ingredient" to our "Spirit of St. Kilian": In addition we have our intensely fruity White Dog in two former whiskey Barrels of an Islay distillery filled. In all three cask varieties, the spirit matured for 16 to 21 months before we married in to our batch 4 of " The Spirit of St. Kilia n". The result: fresh apples, sweet marzipan and strong peat notes - for us the perfect Peat Marriage. Our Batch 4 by THE SPIRIT OF ST. KILIAN - The Peat Marriage: distilled as New Make in 2016 Matured in Ex Islay Barrels, Ex Bourbon Quarter Casks & New American White Oak Barrels bottled as barreled malt brandy with 45% vol. limited to 3,000 bottles
