    Good news: it's whisky. There are far worse exotics. Nevertheless, he is young and lacks depth. The Madeira makes it but tasty and fruity. Finish rather short. Can you drink, but too ambitious price. But you get on 0.7l calculated almost nen 21er Goyne and all 18s ..

    • Nose
      Light and reserved. Green banana, freshly mown grass, sawdust. Champagne truffles, coconut chips.
    • Taste
      White chocolate, hazelnut, caramel. Lemon sorbet, pleasant spicy bitterness.

    Very tasty, the finish is good, very tasty and a nice own touch. With ~ 70 € for half a liter (and not even strength) but unfortunately nothing for poor people.
    • Nose
      nice, fresh fruitiness (such as what I expect from a Madeira finish, without knowing Madeira ;-)), first grapes, then apricot / peach, with caramel and milk chocolate, a slight perfume note ... or not is there an interesting note, fleeting, difficult to grasp, fresh, slightly spicy, a touch of pine needles? Pine needle perfume? ;-) Like it.
    • Taste
      soft, sweet, round - peach, apricot, milk chocolate, Werther's genuine, like dessert cream, then a light pinch of white pepper - very tasty
    • Finish
      medium to long, first caramel, then a round of pepper and then I have next to coffee again something "forest" (pine needles, resin, so the direction)

    A light, tasty and lovely sweet single malt from Finland with a pleasant
    noticeable influence of the madeira wine casks. Not the most complex on
    the planet and without a significant depth but enjoyable, even
    quaffable and, to me, a delicate all day dram. Well done!

    I thank Kirsch Whisky Import for the sample!

    • Nose
      Fresh, light and fruity start on the nose with wine aroma, apricots and
      peaches. This is lovely mixed with sweet vanilla, toffee and
      butterscotch. Hints of cacao, cinnamon and subtle oak in the back.
    • Taste
      Very smooth on the palate. Soft and even silky notes of vanilla,
      apricots, figs and dark grapes. Lovely sweet toffee and custard
      complemented by a slightly warming spiciness of oak, cinnamon, roasted
      nuts and a whiff of white pepper.
    • Finish
      The finish is short to medium long with delicious creamy toffee and
      fruity flavours, before bitter notes of dark chocolate and grape peel
      take over.

      WITH WATER: There's almost no change on the nose when
      adding a few drops of water. The malt stays sweet with vanilla, toffee
      and wine grapes. On the palate, however, water increases the spiciness
      with more oak and black pepper coming to the fore. Less sweet but dry on
      the tongue. The finish is rather short, warm with drying oak and bitter
      grape peels.

    I like it! The influence of Madeira is very clear, in general I love the great fruity notes that these sweet wine barrels put into the whisky. Like the other terenpeli malts a bit reserved and very elegant. Priced with about 70 € for the offered something too expensive for me, but a good malt!

    I thank the German importer Kirsch Whisky for the tasting.
    • Nose
      Very light and pleasant in the nose. The Madeira finish is immediately obvious. I discover the typical notes of fruit cake and perfume. Apricots, peaches, juice of white grapes. Neat vanilla, dark caramel, light chocolate and a very restrained spiciness.
    • Taste
      Very soft and silky on the tongue, perfectly integrated alcohol meets dried figs, apricots and apple rings. The chocolate is also found again, now it is a little stronger and shows together with short flaring woodiness and some pepper and mixed nuts the barrel influence.
    • Finish
      Caramel and fruits only stay short, a soft chocolate and some coffee remain medium in length.

    Karhi was initially matured in bourbon casks (5-7 years) and then finished for one year in Madeira wine casks.
