A unique and delicious Danish take on Rye Whisky using all malted grains and lots of surprises.
Stauning sits on the West Coast of Denmark facing the North Sea. It is quiet farm community of rolling hills dotted with seated moors. But if you sailed a boat directly west from there you would sail directly into the Firth of Forth with Edinburgh on your left. When it comes to climate, Staining has more in common with the Highlands of Scotland that Copenhagen. And in 2005, this is where nine friends set up shop to learn the craft if making Whisky with two small pot stills in an old abandoned butchery surrounded by rolling hills of grain. What started as a hobby is now an acclaimed passion project with six core editions. They even malt their own grain. Welcome to Staining Danish Whisky.
Stauning Rye Danish Whisky is not “just another” Rye Whisky. The first reason is that the mash bill is malted rye with a bit of malted barley. You read that correctly — all the grain is malted on-site at the distillery. And there is zero corn. Then, after being double-distilled in copper pots it aged in new American oak casks… NOT refill… new. Then they bottle it at a very impressive 48% ABV. And when you remember that all of this dedication happens on the shores of Denmark it will turn your head — and taste buds — around.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma opens with the smell of fresh baked rye bread with melted butter, then proceeds to warm up with black pepper, menthol, and a dash of dark fruits.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Surprisingly, the palate leads with fruit — berries and lemon oil — before notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and toasted oak rise up.
The finish is long and warm with a spicy pecan praline things going on.
