Stauning Kaos, 46%

Price: $79 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




Named after a 1930s Danish political slogan, this is a combination of Stauning's unpeated malt, smoked malt, and malted rye whiskies. Give it time to open up and reveal its full beauty: coffee bean, plain chocolate chunks, a warming twist of sweet peat smoke, wood spices, apple, and fresh breakfast pastries. Green apple flavors, rocked by a pandemonium of spices, dissipate to sugary caramel, vanilla, chocolate, and malt permeated by mellow smoke.
