  1. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A delicious single cask bottling from St Kilian that requires no water. After only three years of maturation, the sherry cask delivers clear notes of dark dried fruits, caramel sweetness and chocolate tones that harmonise wonderfully with the maturing spirit. The alcohol is already well integrated and the flavours united. This suggests great drams to come when the whiskies of this young German distillery get older.
    • Nose
      The sherry influence is immediately noticeable on the nose, with sultanas, plums and dark fruits soaked in sherry. These are accompanied by caramel and a touch of cinnamon, joined by a fine herbal note with sage, subtle oak tones and dark chocolate in the background.
    • Taste
      Delightfully sweet on the palate with sherry, creamy caramel and dried dark fruits. Warming with a slightly alcoholic spiciness, plus dark chocolate tones and a hint of cinnamon.
    • Finish
      The finish is long lasting and subtly spicy. Becomes increasingly dry with sherry, mocha, a hint of herbs and fine oak notes.

      With water: After adding water, a little more sherry aromas on the nose, with caramel and dried fruits. A bit of cinnamon, sweetness, brown sugar and dark chocolate. Surprisingly less sweet and clearly peppery on the palate. Dry with sherry and a hint of caramel, plus notes of tobacco leaves. The finish is medium long, dry with a hint of herbs, some caramel, milk chocolate and a fine note of tobacco.

    In times of lockdown we especially miss the sun of Andalusia. The master distiller Mario Rudolf has selected a very special Oloroso Butt from Jerez, the capital of sherry, and is now launching another year-end Distillery Online Edition for Christmas & New Year's Eve 2020 that should not be missed! Sunny, tasty and seductive as always.
