Unusually, Stauning malt a combination of rye and a small amount of malted barley in-house. This is fermented and twice distilled in traditional copper pot stills. The resulting distillate is aged in a combination of 200 litre and 50 litre new oak casks.
Due to being aged for less than three years, Stauning Young Rye cannot be described as being a whisky, although is whisky-like.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 02/02/2016

Appearance:

(sample distilled 2011-2013 and bottled 2015) Clear, mid golden amber.

Aroma:

Freshly cut pencil shavings, freshly baked rye bread with baked apple, fruitcake, cinnamon and black pepper spice.

Taste:

A hefty whack of cinnamon and black pepper spiced exuberant oak camouflages rye bread, fruitcake and baked apple. Water softens and brings bready flavours to the forefront.

Aftertaste:

Dry, cinnamon and black pepper spiced finish with lingering rye bread and faint burnt raisin.

Overall:

Too young to be a "whisky" this precocious rye has a huge personality, exuding cinnamon and black pepper spice. However, this is tamed with a splash of water to reveal pleasing rye bread and fruity notes.
