Stauning Rye Danish Rye Whisky 70cl
Stauning is Denmark’s largest distillery, yet they still floor-malt all of their own locally-sourced rye and barley, use long fermentations, and direct-fire their 24 small copper stills, honouring traditional whisky-making methods while always seeking to innovate.
Stauning Rye whisky was bottled at 48% after 3–4 years of ageing in new American oak barrels. Stauning Rye whisky is a pot-distilled high-rye mashbill Danish whisky (70% malted rye and 30% malted barley) with plenty of fruit alongside the expected rye spice. A well-made, characterful whisky.
Official Tasting Notes for Stauning Rye
Freshly-baked rye bread on the nose, then gentle red fruit and ripe cherry on the palate, balanced by vanilla and citrus peels, leading to a peppery finish.
“Intriguing and a whiskey that keeps drawing you back in.”
