Stauning Peat, 47%

Price: $99 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick




A dense smoky nose of charcoal, ashy soot, smoked fish, and lobster pots, with dunnage floors and hints of dark toffee sweetness, make this live up to the promise of its name. Danish peat and floor-malted local barley create a palate of nutty chocolate, cocoa, blackened wood, and pepper, with delayed blackberry and cinnamon, then it comes full circle back to chocolate, leaving a smoky finish.
