As part of their Rye Series, That Boutique-y Whisky Company have searched far and wide to find some of the best rye whiskies hiding out there. For this one, they’ve gone all the way to Stauning in Denmark and brought us back this beautiful Stauning 3 Years Old Rye Whisky That Boutique-y Whisky Company Rye Series Batch 1. The labels they slap on these bottles are always a heap of fun, and this one features a checklist for starting a new distillery, along with sketches of stills, some barrels and a long shopping list of equipment. Maybe they had a similar list back in 2005 when the Stauning distillery was founded. This group of 9 friends (a doctor, a chef, a butcher, a teacher, a helicopter pilot and four engineers) got together and decided to build a new distillery in Denmark. You can see a few of them on the label! This rye was aged for 3 years in an ex-rum cask from Belize. It has a nose of almonds, coffee, lime and fennel. The palate is creamy with chocolate and hazelnuts while the finish is herbal with eucalyptus.
