Stauning Young Rye
Stauning Whisky // Denmark
According to Stauning, their Young Rye is "too young to be a whisky," but they promise it seems far more mature and will surprise. This bottle is made from Denmark-grown grain (malted rye and a small amount of barley) that is double distilled in traditional pot stills. Not available in the US.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Typenew white oak
"Initially, the Young Rye has a sharp, grainy nose but given time it reveals a lovely caramel and bread pudding scent. This is a sweet and spicy whisky with fantastic cracked black pepper, candied apple, and raisin notes. Dark chocolate and yeast linger on the back end. Adding a touch of water brings yet another layer: spiced oatmeal. Proof that sometimes age is just a number!"
