A surprising and exceptional Single Malt from Denmark that is lightly peated with a brilliant mouth-feel
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 Smoke Danish Whisky has the specifications of a fine Scottish dram. It’s a Single Malt (again, malted on site) that has been dried of a combination of peat and dried heather — all gathered locally. It was aged in first-fill Bourbon casks — specifically, Maker’s Mark. It has been cut to an impressive proof of 47% using local, pure spring water. It is an impressive dram with a buttery mouth-feel and you need to try it.

The aroma is rich with florals and sweet smoke — heather, lemon blossoms, and a hint of jasmine ride over notes of chocolate and apple cores.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate opens with a buttery mouth-feel and a lightly sweet and smoky flavor profile featuring melon, more chocolate, stewed pear, and dried florals.
The finish is medium length and warm with a pleasant smoky bite at the end.
