  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Tasted this one from Carsten, our Danish companion during our Whiskybase trip in June 2014. Not fully matured yet, but quite promissing for the future.
    • Nose
      Spirity. Very minty. Grass. Leafy. New oak. Cereals. Biscuits. Hints of smoke.
    • Taste
      Quite oily. Hot and spicy. Malty and grainy. Peaty. Hickory. Sandalwood. Cumin. Definitly young spirit.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Spearmint. Cloves. A little pepper and some nutmeg.

  2. Hemdl scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Significantly better than the filling from 2010 with the PX finish. If I had initially suspected that the sour note comes from the PX barrel, so I could find this - although not quite so clear - here. The origin must be somewhere else.
    Overall, much more pleasing than the above bottling and much closer to a bulkhead. The youth can not really hide the two, but the bourbon barrel scores with pleasanter aromas and a little more balance. Unfortunately, this bottling is also priced beyond good and evil (€ 119 for 0.5 liters), which is why the verdict must be fundamentally devastating price / performance technology. Looking at the malt off the price, it still has to be turned on one or the other screw, but that can still come with the years. But overall you can try it.
    • Nose
      Again, the malt is slightly acidic in the nose, I already know that from the 2010 Stauning with PX finish. Is that a basic character of Stauning? I dont know. But here are the classic and beautiful bourbon flavors, as they are known from the Scots. Light honey and malty sweetness, all with some smoke in the background.
    • Taste
      Juvenile sharpness meets dull smoke and some malt. Initially a bit sprightly, the spicy then turns into pepper notes. Behind it, the smoke and sweet oak, as known from fresh wood, are ubiquitous. In the background here, too, a slightly sour note, which I can not really assign.
    • Finish
      In the medium-length finish, then, surprisingly, smoke and some pepper, the spicy woody note disappears somewhat quickly.
