Stauning Curious is what is popularly known as White Dog or New Make or Raw Spirits. It is the unaged hearts of our rye whisky - and to make this even more special we have taken our mashbill of 70% malted rye and 30% malted barley and smoked it with peat normally reserved for our peated single malts.
It tastes great on its own - comparable to mezcal or some grappas - but sweeter and more full-bodied and very smokey. It is the obvious choice for high-end cocktails. Try it as a substitute for vodka or mezcal or matured whiskies. It's a powerhouse of taste...
