Todays whisky is from Teerenpeli Distillery in Finland. This whisky is called Rasi and has been matured for six to eight years in bourbon casks and the been given a one year finish in Moscatel casks. It is botted at 43 ABV.
I have already shared my tasting notes on three other whiskies from Teerenpeli: AURA, the 10 YO and Karhi.
Unfortunately is Teerenpeli Rasi sold out.
Mint, eucalyptus and some aceton on the nose. It is a bit more sharp than I expected from the Moscatel finish. It is almost like the Moscatel is not fully integrated. White pepper and oak is dominating on the palate. I also find grapes and pineapple. Quite delicate on the palate. There is some sweetness on the finish, a fruity one. An oaky finish before it disappears quickly.
My score: nose 20 / taste 22 / finish 19/ balance 20 = 81
