  2. Noface83 scored this whisky 81 points Specialist

    Again, a great batch of the most clearly shows the barrel influence without, of course, to completely cover the basic character. Such a drop with an age of 6-7 years would certainly be a hammer!
    • Nose
      82 82
      First of all a lot of malt, young whiskey flavors and, unfortunately, a bit bubbly alcohol. After some time in the glass it is more pleasing and it comes berry fruit, glucose, sweet and sour wine notes, a spicy ginger sharpness and yes even some ground almonds. But the alcohol always flashes aggressively. Getting better with time and after the first sip!
    • Taste
      80 80
      Strong but quickly quite creamy, red fruit jelly, a lot of grape sugar sweetness, then again neat malt and warming (but now pleasant) alcohol.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Surprisingly long finish that is determined by the malty character, the wine aromas add some sweetness and make the finish very supple. Then some lemon abrasion and even slightly spicy oak which also carries a touch of chocolate to the rear.

  3. schero scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Of course, the youth can not hide the substance after the short storage time, but nevertheless the stuff already beats 90% of the German whiskey. Beautifully charged by the Amaronefass you can see here, where the journey goes for St Kilian.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Immediately after pouring comes an extreme red fruit note from the glass, right after a lot of grainy youth - but that was clear at the age - so I give the Stöffchen a little time to calm down, after a while much less youth - friends of distilleries like Caol Ila will not notice the grainy character

      Behind it then red grapes, blood orange, a little bit of coastal flavor can be well generated in the middle of Germany, citrus peels then dominate later, to flowery and perfumed, a little grassy spicy, currants
    • Taste
      85 85
      Stronger and sweeter approach, immediately red fruits, in addition to a flashing cereal note - but that is quickly gone, and then the heat comes, no dryness but a bit of spice, slightly sour behind out
    • Finish
      83 83
      Here, too, first the youthful character, which now also not so much flies, he keeps together with the red fruit on the palate, dark chocolate with cherry flavor could taste like that

    Description of the distillery:

    The Spirit of St. Kilian - Batch 5: late summer in the glass
    Fruity plums and fresh country apples with a touch of marzipan and spicy wood notes: we have created BATCH 5 of our Spirit of St. Kilian especially for this late summer. The fifth bottling of our barreled malting brandy matured for more than 27 months in former Italian wine barrels.

    The special oak barrels we received from Claudio Lenotti, to which we are friendly connected. The well-known winery of his family produces outstanding wines in Northern Italy for more than 100 years - including the well-known "Amarone". The special feature of this type of wine: After harvesting, the grapes are dried for several months, thus losing up to half their weight and therefore develop an incredible sugar and flavor concentration. No wonder Amarone is one of the best Italian wines. We took advantage of its special aroma through the intensive Fassreifung for our Spirit of St. Kilian.

    The result: a strong, fresh and malty-sweet blend of ripe fruit and marzipan - the perfect drink for balmy late summer evenings.

    Our Batch 5 by THE SPIRIT OF ST. KILIAN:

    - Distilled as New Make in April 2016
    - matured in oak barrels previously used in Amarone red wine from the northern Italian wine region of Valpolicella
    - bottled as barrel-stored malt brandy with 50% vol.
    - limited to 4,900 bottles
