Teerenpeli Kaski Finnish Single Malt
Product Type: Single Malt
Teerenpeli KASKI Finnish Single Malt Whisky is an incredibly well-made whisky, which was distilled and aged in Finland using locally grown barley. The whisky is distilled from 87% pilsner malt, and 13% heavily peated malt, and the resulting new make spirit is peated to 5ppm. The pilsner malt is grown in Finland within 95 miles of the distillery, while the water used to make the spirit is filtered through the Salpausselkä esker, a gravel ridge formed by the ice age about 10,000
years ago. The spirit is double distilled in copper pot stills, which were produced in Scotland for Teerenpeli’s own design specifications. Following distillation, KASKI is aged in medium toasted first fill PX and Olorosso Sherry casks, which are sourced directly from the Cordoba region in Spain. The casks are placed in 40 foot shipping containers and are placed outside, where the extreme temperature shifts of the Finnish climate help craft an extremely complex whisky. In Finland, the temperature in the winter drops to -30° F, while it gets as high as 85° F in the Summer. No artifical heating or cooling is used during the ageing process. The final result is a beautiful and complex whisky, whith a creamy-maltiness and a hint of peat, which tastes like the perfect combination of Macallan and Springbank. This whisky is fun to taste next to Teerenpeli’s PORTTI Single Malt Whisky, which is distilled the exact same way and aged for the exact same amount of time, butrests in different casks. Teerenpeli KASKI Single Malt Whisky was awarded 95 Points and the Liquid
Gold Award by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
