Nose

A very complex nose at first. Very spicy, with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, cloves and a little cardamom. A very Indian, Bomba(y)stic nose. Later on, the brandy, sherry and rum shines through, with the sherry kind of taking over after a few minutes in the glass with cocoa and marzipan showing their heads.

Taste

Well, in a strange turn of events, the Indian smell transforms into a Carribean taste. Really, the rum cask takes over the taste very much. Caramelized fruits with brown bread. A creamy, but slightly drying mouthfeel. Some cocoa bitterness coming through at the end.

Finish

More rum and sherry, but in a more conventional way. I'd say the finish is the least exotic. Slightly drying, but the bittersweet aftertaste lingers for a very long time. 

Comments

A journey of a dram that starts in India, takes you to the Carribeans and ends in Scotland, this is a very curious but tasty dram. This batch (7) tastes more rum-like than a previous batch I tasted and to be honest, it works really well. The bigger rum influence actually brings about that more Carribean mouthfeel, adding to the already exotic nature of this whisky.

Life's too short to drink shitty whisky.
