  1. TomAndIngrid scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Strong and spicy.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Beef bouillon greets you from afar before salty woody notes take over.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet, salty, creamy, toffee, dried fruit, strong spiciness. Alcohol is very present but well integrated.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Wood and dried fruit tend to fade away in the medium term.

    St. Kilian Distillers' note:
    • Nose
      A beguiling sweetness with dried fruits, plums, overripe peaches and sultanas, in perfect interplay with ripe walnut, subtle oak spice and floral tones.
    • Taste
      An intense, syrupy sweetness with dried fruits, sultanas, oranges and ripe bananas, with a rich, warming mouthfeel and superbly integrated alcohol.
    • Finish
      Long lasting, pleasantly warming and creamy sweet with candied oranges, ripe walnuts and a hint of dry cocoa as well as subtle spicy oak.

  5. WHISKYEUROPA2009 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    ... very balanced and tasty. A mild, Moscatel matured Kilian with beautiful complex notes... my handfill was on 12/13/2022 and was significantly better than when I tried it 2 months ago...

    ... Orange, nutmeg, vanilla, spicy oak, with peach, sweet pineapple on a pina colada glass with cream and cherry. Very dry on the palate, sweet raisins, lemon, fresh oak, cocoa, lychee and jasmine, walnut and olives with almonds.
