Description of the distillery:
THE SPIRIT OF ST. KILIAN - BATCH 6 - A SMOKY-SWEET TEMPTATION
"Bourbon meets Sauternes" - Batch 6 of our "Spirit of St. Kilian" combines pithy peat notes with a tantalizing sweetness of vanilla and spicy aromas of roasted nuts. Especially for this batch, our Master Distiller Mario Rudolf has not only selected three different barrel types, but also three different New Makes - including our most smoky yet. Batch 6 matured in our barrels for at least 21 months.
The foundation of this barrel-aged malting brand is our award-winning "Turf Dog" - a smoky new make with a fruity-fresh profile.
The peated Spirit matured in three classic 195 gallon Bourbon Barrels from Kentucky and a particularly small 55-liter Quarter Cask from Texas Garrison Brothers craft distillery - giving it even more vanilla and honey notes.
But for our latest creation, we put even more on it: Our "Turf Beast" - a brand of heavily-pitched Highland malt with a smoke content of 92 ppm - also matured in former bourbon barrels and brings a warm campfire flavor.
For a harmonious integration of peaty notes and a fruity counterpoint provides untapped Spirit, matured in three French 225-liter Sauternes white wine barrels. It complements the smoke character with a delicate fruitiness and spicy nutty accents of European oak.
With Batch 6 "Bourbon meets Sauternes" we offer our fans a true character spirit that is just like us: passionate, independent and full of surprises.
