Mosgaard makes excellent whisky and they dare to experiment with different types of cask, which I like.
Another thing that is interesting is that they go a step further than many in making special casks like this cask which is composed of staves from old Ruby and Tawny Port wine casks. The casks are made from the large casks cut down to 50 liter casks and the staves are mixed between the Ruby and Tawny casks.
Firstly this gives a rather distinct taste when the whisky has as this much contact with the wood as it does in these smaller casks.
The combination of the two types of port gives a good mix of the drier and the sweeter port.
I’m not sure how old it is, but I think it’s just a little over 3 years old. The nice thing about it is that it tastes a lot older.
The maturation in 50 liter casks is faster, and in round figures, a storage for 3 years in a 50 liter cask will correspond to the whisky having been approx. 12 years in a 225 liter barrel.
You get a really delicious desert whisky with this Port Wine Cask. A treat for the palate and there is a nice aftertaste that lingers for a long time.
