”Stovt” or ”Stout” (translated from Danish), is a light expression from Thy Whisky. It is a mix of Oloroso Sherry casks and Bourbon barrels, peated and unpeated. When the whisky is blended, they give it a finish in ex-Stout beer casks. Only 1.825 bottles were made. Licorice!! Definitely licorice in the smell! I actually never tried a whisky, with the smell so… Licorice!! Some hints of oak, vanilla and white fruits as well.

So dark and intense in the taste! So many things are going on – oak, spices, licorice, dried fruits, citrus and I could go on. Some cough syrup as well. After a while, the sweetness from the dried fruits leaves you with a long and pleasant finish. Very long – I bet you can actually chew this!

An experimental whisky, which is quite interesting. I will recommend it, for people who are searching for an unique taste experience, and not for people that “just” want Scotch. Well, personally, I get more and more intrigued for every sip! I will give this 84/100 (20/21/22/21).
