  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Light peat that melts in a soft atmosphere, but also very malty with some fruits too ripe. On the palate: 50% really? What flexibility. Strength and finesse, superb presence, malt is really in the spotlight, with this light peat wire. Finish very long and well spiced, slightly peaty. With a little water, the sweetness increases on the nose. On the other hand, it loses all its structure and intensity in the mouth and becomes very watery. To have a whisky whisper and take a picture of his face when he discovers it is an Indian whisky after he says it's very good.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Wood, pepper, slightly spicy, wood tannins, bitter. Flexible for 50%. Aftertaste is short

    Tasted blind and I was positevely surprised.. the nose suggested well aged highland malt in 2nd or 3rd filled bourbon barrels .. whereas in the mouth I started quessing a 12-15 year old nearly cask strength campletown whisky with a portion of ,not at all flawed, sherry casks in the mix..

      Cereals and honeys, plus some resinous elements that I adore and when present always push my scores a bit higher. Some unripe tropical fruits and tinned apricots also shine through as well as something pleasantly dusty

      Much more powerfull and a bit younger than the nose suggested, high strength, with spicies mainly on ginger, mineral and salty, with clear wood smoke. Very full bodied, nicely waxy and well structured with fruity notes and squished lemons.

      Long, bittersweet but balanced with a nice taste of black olives lingering

    nose is sherried, taste is of sour spices, aftertaste is focusing on spices. interesting one to try.

    Like most exotic species, this is a NAS (in the tropics the whisky wants to ripen a little faster - and evaporate). This is an excellent whisky aged simply in new oak barrels. Initially, I smell a vague broth - but luckily that gets even less later. After a year that is all outdated bullshit and it turns out that the soup taste was only immediately behind the cork. Nothing is as frustrating as whisky that tastes good but smells bad - and this is not the case. After an initially complicated start, the palette is going wild. Fruity-spicy, red fruit - cherries! with a dry aftertaste, but not nasty. Excellent. Go buy it - for 40 euros a wonderful successor to the Amrut Single Malt in my cupboard.
    Tasting 2: Intriguing spicy soft sweet aromas with evident oriental edge, I call it in the absence of better 5-spice powder (at least star anise). Golden yellow color, beautifully varied in taste, surprising and certainly different from Scotch SM. I am happy again, I tasted it for the first time at the DSMW BYOB in October 2017 at Stavleu. Winner, this one; WB is a bit more realistic with 84.3 points earned by people. Bottlekill with bare knees on a hair after a year after purchase.
