Release #18

Helsinki Whiskey Rye Malt Release #18 is a vatting of four casks. Master Blender Kai Kilpinen has chosen the casks. Whiskey has at first matured in 200-liter American virgin oak barrels for a minimum of three years. After maturing the whiskey has been transferred to Single Malt whisky casks for finishing. The casks have previously been used to mature peated whisky from the Scottish island of Islay to achieve a light, smooth smoky aroma. Finishing takes six to nine months.

Release date is 28.9.2020.

Tasting notes


Aromatic smokiness of peat fires, vanilla and baked apples from the oak cask and freshly baked rye loaf from the distillate. Malts and dark chocolate added with brown sugar.


Rich mouthfeel of sweet smoke. Aroma has notes of vanilla, apricots, caramel, licorice and cocoa. Malted barley balances the sweetness..


Long spiciness of rye whiskey lingers on the insides of the cheeks. Palatable black pepper is evident.
