Explore the world of Kyrö Distillery, the renowned Finnish distillery celebrated for its rye whiskies, as it unveils two distinctive additions to its collection – Kyrö Wood Smoke and Kyrö Peat Smoke.
Embark on a journey with Kyrö Wood Smoke, a 100% rye whisky delicately imbued with subtle smokiness. Crafted following Nordic traditions, the malt undergoes smoking over alder wood. Following a meticulous double distillation, it matures in a harmonious blend of bourbon, French oak, and American oak barrels. The result is an intense, peppery flavor profile with notes of caramel and vanilla, artfully balanced by the freshness of alder smoke. A true homage to Finnish tradition, available for exploration at Systembolaget from November 1st.
Nose: Aromas unfold with subtleties of vanilla, caramel, and pepper, accompanied by sweet smoke and tar. Palate: Robust smokiness intertwines with sweet rye bread, honey, and oaky nuances.
