Stauning får topkarakterer i Whisky “Biblen”

Whisky, der gør livet værd at leve. De ord kan Stauning Whisky nu smykke hele tre forskellige aftapninger med. I 2014 udgaven af Whisky Bible, hvor den anerkendte whiskyekspert Jim Murray bedømmer whisky fra hele verden, er der topkarakterer til flere Stauning- aftapninger. Det viser, at Stauning whisky sagtens kan stå på samme hylde som verdens allerbedste.

Denne gang er det en Young Rye (lavet på dansk rug) og den røgede udgave af destilleriets single malt, der får 94,5 point ud af 100 – en bedømmelse, der udløser the Whisky Bible Liquid Gold Award. En anden Young Rye får 92 point, mens den ikke-røgede single malt får 85 point. To specialaftapninger, der har modnet på tidligere sherryfade har fået 93 og 85 point. Til gengæld har en tredje Young Rye ”kun” fået 77 point.

– Vi er meget, meget stolte af årets bedømmelser. At få så gode karakterer af en mand, der har smagt på whisky fra hele verden, er noget, vi kan leve højt på længe, siger Alex Munch, der er én af de 9 venner der sammen startede Stauning Whisky.

– At vi så for første gang også er nede på 77 point viser, at vi stadig har noget at lære. Som der står i beskrivelsen, så er det ikke nemt at lave god whisky. Det er stadig en fantastisk god flaske rye, men den her skiller sig altså ud blandt de andre flasker Young Rye i Jim Murrays bedømmelse. Det her viser også, at Jim Murray kommer med sin ærlige mening – laver man en aftapning, der ikke lever op til hans forventninger, så får man det at vide.

Årets Whisky Bible har været ventet med spænding i Stauning. At få produkterne bedømt af Jim Murray er som at gå til eksamen. Samtidig er det også en god anledning til at se tilbage på det seneste år, der har budt på flere specialaftapninger.

– Vi er faktisk særligt glade for de 93 point til den røgede single malt, der har ligget på Oloroso sherry-fad, for normalt bryder Jim Murray sig ikke om at blande røg og sherry. Men her har vi altså lavet en aftapning, hvor han må overgive sig, fortæller Alex Munch.

Selv om drengene fra Stauning Whisky nu kan gå rundt med brede smil den kommende tid, er der også alvor i bedømmelserne. De bliver brugt som hjælp og vejledning til at holde den høje kvalitet i produktionen.

Not quite done yet, but it sure is close. About 3 more months of construction and the expansion of Stauning Whisky will be completed. This is the panoramic still room where 24 small pot stills are about to be installed. A wonder of the whisky world...

In Copenhagen it’s time for the annual Fashion Week @cphfw. We thought this was the right time to kick off our partnership with @snsherning - a west Jutland craft clothing manufacturer that we share so many ideals and values with. First real co-lab is a #hygge blanket done in 2,5 kg of Stauning Rye colored pure wool. @revolvertradeshow
