The state of whisky made in Denmark - part 3

Stauning Peated 3yo 2nd Edition 55%
Distilled 2009, bottled 2013

Stauning says they bottles this in a dark bottle to protect the phenols from disintegrate from light. LIght and whisky for sure doesnt work together very well

Young nose, a bit of peat and vanilla. There is a little bit of youthfull sourness in the nose I don't really like

Not expecting much the palate is surprisingly good. The wood has spiced up this whisky very well with some prickly vanilla notes embedding the peat

The finish is long and in the end I pick up some more sour youthness

Again a young dram, but thats what they got. In my opinion on level with the young stuff bottled by Kilchoman

Rating 80/100

Comment a funny mix of very pleasing and somewhat displeasing

This concludes the Staunings. The rye ended up as my favourite, but the vanilla part of this peated dram is really delicious and when fullly matured this will be a top class whisky

Next up is three cask samples from Ørbæk (or Nyborg distillery as the also call themselves)
