Nordic Whisky #219 - Teerenpeli Savu
Teerenpeli Savu, NAS, 43 %
It has been a while, but here I have a new review of a single malt from Finissh distillery Teerenpeli.
The Teerenpeli Savu has been matured in 80 % bourbon casks and 20 % Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks. This marks the first peated release from Teerenpeli. It was launched in late Autumn 2018.

Nose: Malty with soft wood smoke. The peat is mild and well integrated. Vanilla, chocolate and warm oakiness.
Taste: Medium body and medium to low sweetness. Cool coffee, dark chocolate and dry cocoa. More ashes than wood smoke now. Hints of pepper.
Finish: Short finish. Even more coffee notes on the finish. Not a whole lot else going on. Still medium to low sweetness. Hints of fruitiness in the back perhaps.
Comment: A fine first attempt at a peated whisky from Teerenpeli, but it comes across as a bit young.
