  1. whisky313 did not rate this whisky Specialist

    St. Kilian Signature Edition "Four" is the second smoky single malt from the Lower Franconian distillery. Original Scottish malt from Glenesk Maltings was used for this. The fourth Signature Edition matured half each in Andalusian Oloroso and PX Sherry barrels. The aromas from the barrels form a fruity counterpart to the strong smoke in the distillate.

    • German single malt whisky
    • Bottled with 48% ABV
    • Aged for 3 years in selected sherry casks from Andalusia
    • Double distilled in pot stills from Scotland
    • Smoke content: 54 ppm
    • natural color
    • not cool filtered
    • Made from 100% pure barley malt

  2. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    Smoky-fruity whisky. The low age is noticeable.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Fireplace smoke, light fruits and dried fruit behind. Burnt caramel. Leather, vanilla and tobacco.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Peat smoke combined with light, fruity notes. In addition caramel. Somewhat metallic and unbalanced (due to the small age).
    • Finish
      75 75
      On leaving, this metallic aftertaste, which I don't like. Sizzling on the tip of the tongue. The smoke remains.
