This is CES No.1 from Mosgaard Distillery.
CES is short for Cask Experiment Serie.
In this case it has been more than just mixing different casks from the distillery.
Jes Mosgaard the owner and Master blender of Mosgaard Distillery invited 4 others people to join him in this experiment. I was one of the 4.
All 5 of us got samples from 7 different casks and was challenged to make the best whisky.
At a virtual tasting last week (October 29th, 2020) we presented our whisky and at the end of the tasting all participants voted for the best whisky – this was exciting….
My whisky ended up on second place 🥈 and I am happy 😊
The winning whisky was blended by Thomas Rydberg the owner of the Danish magazine; Whisky & Rom magasinet @whiskyromdk
His whisky was blended and bottled for the marked and it is this one, The CES No.1 – Congratulations Thomas, a fantastic whisky!
A single malt mixed of 5 different casks and has a great taste and has a fine balance.
It is consisting of whisky matured in a ex-bourbon cask, a PX finish that startet in af French oak cask, a fully matured in a PX cask, a fully matured in a French oak cask and fully matured Oloroso cask. It is a young whisky. The youngest of the whiskies used i 3 years and 2 months old. The oldest is 3 years and 9 months old, so the term of this whisky would be a 3 year old. All the casks used are only 50 liter casks, which give more contact with the wood and matures faster. This means that the aging in a 50 liter cask is equivalent to a 3 years old whisky would a have a maturation similar to a 12 year old whisky that has matured in a 200-250 liter cask.
You get tast of vanilla, raisin, spices, nuts and dark chocolate.
This has been a fantastic adventure. Thank you so much Jes Mosgaard for inviting me to join the Cask Experiment.
