Stauning Kaos - April 2019
Looking for Stauning Whisky?
Due to restrictions on trade involving alcohol across borders, we are not able to ship bottles outside of Denmark. The best we can do is to guide you towards our international distributors.
Also we may have sold out - but - try your luck at our international distributors and larger Danish webshops - they ship to almost anywhere in Europe and the rest of the world...
It is an extremely versatile whisky. Drink it neat like a scotch, add ice for a bourbon/rye feel or use it in your classic whisky-based cocktail - Try making a Kaos Manhattan (5 cl Kaos, 3 cl sweet vermouth and a dash of bitters).
In Whisky Bible 2017 Jim Murray gives the 2016 edition Kaos 94,5 points and thereby a Liquid Gold Award.
Jim Murray quote:
Taste: "just too ridiculously beautiful", "So many questions... so many confusing but magnificently delicious answers".
Stauning Kaos is a very unique whisky. This time it is a mix of four of our core-products - Stauning Traditional + Stauning Heather + Stauning Peat + Stauning Rye. A bit of smoke, a bit of spice, sweetness and a lot of complexity and structure.
