Teerenpeli Distiller’s Choice Portwood Finish

Teerenpeli Distiller's Choice Portwood Finish for Tallink Silja

This special Distiller’s Choice was released for travel retail and exclusively for Tallink Silja ferries tax free shops by Finnish whisky maker, Teerenpeli distillery. Only 1176 bottles were released in 2014.

Teerenpeli DC Portwood Finish has no age statement. I believe it’s been resting in old bourbon casks before getting its finishing touch in port wine casks.

When this whisky was made, Teerenpeli had an annual capacity of over 40 000 liters at their small distillery at Restaurant Taivaanranta in Lahti. But in 2015 they quadrupled their capacity with new bigger distillery.
