Berlin International Spirits Competition 2020 - Gold Award
This is Mosgaard's newest whisky, it is dark and intense with vinous and spicy sweetness. The barrels are the secret, built from two types of old Port Wine casks. Staves from both Ruby and Tawny port casks are mixed to make the Mosgaard casks. The result is that the Port Cask whisky matures in balance with vinous notes from Ruby port and spicy notes and sweetness from Tawny.
