Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Note

    Nose: A complex amalgam of nougat, spotted dog pudding (sans sultanas!) and orange blossom honey with the vanilla spinning tangled webs just beneath.  Honey is captured as the bourbon element expands...; a delicate gristiness ushers in a freshness to the custard tart.

    Taste: The mouth feel exudes star quality with the barley generating all kinds of juicy riches with the light Demerara sugars forming an elegant accompaniment.  A coppery spine is soon carrying the barley in varied forms while a gorgeous cocoa sub strata heralds in the spices which buzz the taste buds at will.

    Finish: Beautifully relaxed: a light tingle from the spices pulses contentedly, the vanillas gather in deeper intensity yet the barley and copper stretches to the end.

    Balance: Yet another astonishing malt from India. 46%.

    A whisky that just has that Umami factor. Has gone down faster than any whisky I've ever had but that's probably because the missus loves it too. Don't let the fact it's from India put you off. Absolutely Sublime

    What a finish, smooth & sensational. Truly surprised initially that this was Indian whiskey, but it's right up there with the best.
