A mildly smoked single malt whisky made from pure local ingredients, Stauning Smoke is the quintessence of the distillery's innovative New Nordic-whisky philosophy: malted on open floors, smoked over locally harvested peat and heather found in the landscape surrounding Stauning, double-distilled in small flame-heated pot stills and finally aged on 1st Fill wine and spirits casks.
Stauning SMOKE is made from barley harvested in Stauning, smoked using local peat & heather. The grains are floor-malted at the distillery, then double-distilled in small, open-fired pot stills. The spirit is unfiltered and not chill-filtered, then matured in a mix of 1st Fill bourbon casks, 1st Fill Madeira casks, 1st Fill Jamaica Rum casks and Virgin American Oak casks
Stauning only uses peat from local bogs. They blend the peat with dried heather harvested from the heathland by Ringkøbing Fjord. The heather provides the whisky with a mild and aromatic smoky fragrance
The result is an elegant and refined whisky with a gentle smoky taste and a complex character that oozes of the dunes, the heath and the wind by the North Sea. A thoroughbred terroir whisky that gently will blow you away.
Stauning SMOKE Whisky Tasting Notes:
Aroma: Hay and woody smoke mingle throughout, ending with a touch of bright lemon.
Palate: Light and thin in texture, a sharp note of wood smoke with a leathery quality hits right off. The smoke mellows but the leather keeps with the sip, and has a hint of cocoa on the back palate. Subsequent sips really bring out a softness like sweetened white bread.
