Kyrö 4 Years Old Batch 1 That Boutique-Y Whisky Company

1. What they say

That Boutique-y Whisky Company has gone and bottled up a fantastic rye whisky from the fabulous Kyrö. This exceptional Finnish expression is made using 100% malted rye, and was initially aged in a new American oak cask before being reracked into a first-fill bourbon barrel. Spicy, sweet, earthy – everything you want from a rye whisky, and more!

Batch 1 is a release of 385 bottles.
