Teerenpeli Distiller's Choice Rasi, 43%

Price: $87 Issue: Spring 2016 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A Moscatel finish for a year after maturation in bourbon casks has added dark, sweet notes to the whisky's natural character. This has an attractive nose of red-skinned apples, sweet dark raisins, coconut, nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. The creamy texture has well-balanced flavors of tangy tropical fruit, Szechuan peppercorns, and a dalliance with citrus. Light, clean, and refreshing through to the finish of spiced apple and pepper. Subtle and careful, this is a restrained example of extra maturation. (2,554 bottles) £60
