    Whisky matured in award-winning FAUST Eisbock barrels from Miltenberg am Main

    This "Eisbock-Edition" is also something very special and new for St. Kilian. 100% untilled Pilsner malt was used for the production - an "unpeated" recipe. Nevertheless, this single malt has a light & pleasant smokiness. This was created during the switch from "peated season" to "unpeated season", giving the distillate its subtle smoky notes and making it a complex taste experience.

    An absolute highlight of this whisky, however, are the 350 liter barrels made of French oak: before the Faust brewery filled them with their award-winning ice bucket, fine cognac from Remy Martin was stored in them. The barrel was initially cognac, then the award-winning Eisbock beer and then the New Make was allowed to spend more than 3 years in it until it matured.

    the taste of the Eisbock beer comes through in a subtle aroma and taste. You can tell that he is young. If he was older then it would be a really great whisky.
