Teeling Kyrö Rye Gin Finish, 46% ABV.

Teeling Kyrö Rye Gin Cask Finish

Appearance – This Whiskey is none chill filtered, and a natural damp straw colour, it’s quite viscous and beads up on the glass, and has slow running thin legs.

Nose – it’s a very light nose on this Whiskey, it’s also a little spirit led, I presume because of it’s lightness flavour wise. It’s malty, there’s cereal and porridge, crushed biscuits, and cheesecake base. There’s a faint lemon and lime note, and lemon curd, it’s rather nice, and I’d describe it as elegant.

Palate – Well I didn’t see that coming, the palate is very different to the nose. It’s very floral and perfumed, with Parma violets and Turkish delight, there’s mixed fruit hard boiled sweets, and Irn-Bru mixed with lemonade, I’ve not tasted a Whiskey quite like it before tbh, it’s rather refreshing tbh.

Finish – It’s short to medium in length, there’s icing sugar, and it’s a little drying, there’s more Turkish delight, and it’s still very floral.

My thoughts – This is part of Teelings small batch collaboration range, and I’ve not tasted a whiskey quite like it to be honest. I’ve found it very refreshing in flavour and style, it’s a bit of an eye opener.

Would I buy a bottle? – As a fan of floral Speyside/Lowland Scotch whiskies yes I would buy a bottle, it’s different that’s for sure.
