Helsinki Whiskey 100% Rye Malt Release #1 is a blend of ten casks chosen by Master Blender Kai Kilpinen. They are small 28-litre new French oak casks from Allier and Limousin forests. The whiskey has been matured for three years and one day. Only 580 individually numbered bottles are available. This was the company’s first official whiskey release on November 17, 2017.
Vanilla and caramel from the oak cask, malted rye and freshly baked rye loaf from the distillate. Honey and dark chocolate.
Rich and deep mouthfeel. Aroma has notes of vanilla, dried apricots, toffee, licorice, herbs, even a hint of dark roasted coffee. A drop of water will bring out the tannins of the cask and reduce the sweetness.
Long, it lingers on the insides of the cheeks. Spiciness of rye whiskey, especially white pepper, abundantly evident.
