N: Uniquely savoury-sweet, soft smoke, light citrus and with a ‘malty backbone’ [Gareth].
T: Smoky wash > detergent-ish and mildly butyric [as seen in the Curious]. Add water to promote that malty backbone on the palate.
F: Citrus, candid barley smoke, chopsy/chewy beer/wash.
C: Stauning’s uniquely characterful spirit, though firmly shaped by the cask, doesn’t hide behind cask flavouring. Bravo.
