Stauning Peated Whisky (5th Edition)
Peated Single Malt
Stauning Whisky // Denmark
Made from barley malted at the distillery and peated via peat excavated from near the Klosterlund Museum, the Stauning Peated is a self-claimed "whisky that appeals to Islay fans." The whisky is matured in first fill former Maker's Mark barrels and stored with ample airflow so the region becomes a part of the final product as well. Not available in the US.

"The smell of a forest after a rain, wet leaves, and brine take precedence in the first impression of this whisky followed with a wisp of smoke. The smoke comes to the forefront--gently--with a curiously herbal quality, almost as though the smoke were from burning sage. As it sits, vanilla and dark chocolate come out; water brings up the salt and peat."
