Teerenpeli Distiller’s Choice Rasi

Worldwide Wednesday Episode 29

Teerenpeli released recently three new expressions, two of which I will review today: Karhi and Rasi. Both expressions are part of their Distiller’s Choice bottling series.

Rasi was initially matured in bourbon casks (6-8 years) and then finished for one year in Moscatel wine casks.

And in case you were wondering what Rasi means, here is the answer:

The word RASI means badly burnt KASKI fuel and it´s an old farming word.

Ah, it’s Christmas time! Baked apples, raisins, walnuts and winter spices, with cinnamon being the most pronounced.


Smooth. More baked apples, accompanied by toffee nougat, ginger and lemon mint. Hints of oak in the back.


Rather long. Dry and strong with a pleasant warmth. Fresh oak and caramel.


A very solid everyday dram, not overly complex and easy to sip.

Score: 84 / 100
