    An organic single malt distilled on the Danish island of Fyn. This dram has been matured for 3.5 years in custom 50L casks made by a cooperage in Spain using a combination of tawny and ruby port staves.
    • Nose
      89 89
      The nose arrives full of plums, dried fruits, medjool dates and sliced almonds. This is followed by a little spiciness and a whiff of tobacco, before toffee apples and caramelised pears join the party. The unique duel port cask influence clearly coming through in a complex and rewarding nose. After a little time in the glass, a touch of oak emerges.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Plum pludding, dried fruits, cinnamon and anise. Rich and velvety mouthfeel, with the mid palette coming alive with apples, ripe grapes and a touch of chocolate. Both the ruby and tawny port influence are well represented in a balanced and elegant 2-step tango.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-long, sweet and spicy. A little drying, with a fading dark chocolate twist sealing the deal.

    My first Danish whisky and right up top, I'll say I'm impressed.

    Every part of this delivers a purposeful and complex experience.

    The nose was wide open and instantly accessible from the beginning and has this dark and carrot-cakey vibe that, despite all its sweet soundings component parts, comes across as deeply savoury.

    On the palate, it is definitely sweet at first, with thick and sticky forest fruit pie filling that develops into something more earthy, before a sweet, menthol pine rise and lift some of those dark cooked fruits into a fresher, but still dark, juicy grape.

    The tail then goes its own way.

    It opens with rich and bittersweet espresso and picks up a little Christmas via the orange and clove before devolving into dissipating chocolate that gets dryer and tannic, with a touch of red wine. The astringency is not about for long and keeps breaking down so that by the end the dryness has been replaced by a juicy minerality.

    Seriously, this is superb and yet another example of a ridiculously high quality world whisky that I only just found out about 15 minutes ago.

    Usually, I take my time over these reviews and might leave half the sample for the next day to let it open some more, get some extra perspective, or just to check my palate isn't having a off day.

    I was curious to see how this Mosgaard would change but completely failed at leaving it alone and finished it in one sitting.
