Something happens over time from the first batches to the PX Cask we taste today.
Mosgaard has experimented with the different casks and are doing a great job with small 50 liter casks and it is interesting to follow.
This Pedro Ximenez Cask is first matured in new french oak casks and finished in PX casks. Being matured in the small 50 liter casks things happen faster and new wood give power to the tannins in the french oak and colour.
I have tasted Mosgaard whisky from some of the french oak matured that has only matured in these and some of them are absolutly fantastic, one has been released, but only in a very limited numbers. But my point is that the combination of the spices from the french oak combined with the sweetness from the PX cask is a brilliant combination.
In my opinion this PX Cask batch is much more balanced than earlier batches – they were also good but this is beautiful.
It is understandable it won Berlin International Spirits Competition (BISC) Gold medal 2020 and World Spirits awards Gold 2020
