Product details

A delicately smoky malted rye whisky from Kyrö over in Finland. Wood Smoke is made entirely with malted Finnish rye which, in keeping with an ancient northern tradition, has been smoked with alder wood in a 100-year old "riihi" barn. The whisky is something of an homage to Finnish saunas, because it was inside one where the idea for the distillery was born, but specifically smoke saunas, the oldest kind of Finnish sauna which doesn't have a chimney, and so smoke fills the room. The whisky itself is double pot-distilled, and then aged in a combination of French oak, new American oak, and ex-bourbon casks. While the alder smoke brings a delicate, yet savoury smokiness to the spirit, the cask recipe balances that with peppery spice, and plenty of caramel and vanilla sweetness.

Dry smoke lingers on, with black pepper and fresh citrus in the background.
