Helsinki Whiskey Rye Malt Release #14 is a vatting of three casks. Master Blender Kai Kilpinen has chosen the casks. Whiskey has at first matured in 200 liter American virgin oak barrels. The whiskey has been matured for a minimum of three years. After maturing the whiskey has been transferred to ex-rum casks for finishing. The rum casks have previously been used to mature Guyianan and Jamaican rum. Finishing takes three to six months.
Vanilla and toffee from the oak cask, malted rye and freshly baked rye loaf from the distillate. Malts and dark chocolate added with brown sugar.
Rich mouthfeel. Aroma has notes of vanilla, apricots, caramel, licorice and cocoa. Fruity elements from the rum cask are balanced by the Malted barley.
Long, it lingers on the insides of the cheeks. Spiciness of rye whiskey is evident.
