Very promising fantastically fruity nose, but needs a bit more time to mature I think. Would love to try this in 3 to 5 years time.

Nose

Smells like one of those jelly air fresheners you put in a toilet. Also it smells like a pharmacy, that mixture of medical products, sweets and toiletries. Some sort of cheap soap and hairspray. Weird, haven't nosed anything like this before which makes it unique. 

Taste

At first you think this isn't that bad and then you get that sickly sweet taste but then that goes quickly and is replaced by something a bit more fruity but from a tin. 

Finish

The finish is not good, an aftertaste of cheap perfume. 

Comments

It is different I will give it that. If the wife smells this on my breath she will probably accuse me of having an affair with some tart. Thanks to Peatbogger for this unusual sample. 

Carrots may improve your vision, but whisky will double it.

Nose

Pulled the cat out of the bag, let's see what it's about.

This smells India! 

Sweet incense, flower potpourri.

Very light mint, Werther's caramel, and it got a slight impression of sherry cask.

After a while I pick up some sweet yellow fruit under the blanket of flowers, mainly honey melon.


Taste

Neutral arrival and mouth feel.

Then the floral potpourri hits.

It's like sipping the lightly green tinted water you pour out of a vase when your week old cut roses has whitered away, although 43% ABV make it a bit more interesting.

Most unusual taste, and so dominating it makes it hard to ignore in search for other things.

Very light spicyness.


Finish

If anything, it's got consistency.

The floral notes carry on into the very end.

It's like you've been chewing on an incense stick.

So far it's been interestingly different, but having it stuck for quite some time it's getting rather queasy and borderline offensive.

There is a tiny twist of that sweet caramel but in the end it is the stale rose water that prevails.

The empty glass smell of tropical fruit juice, mango and papaya.


Comments

Served blind I would not recognise this as single malt, at best a dash in a fruit punch bowl.

Nose

Apple peel and pear skins go hand-in-hand with caramel and fudge, as well as a hint of galia melon and an array of citrus fruits. Fresh, vibrant and very inviting. Quite floral as well, coming close to being perfume-y, but it accomplishes to delicately walk that tight rope.

Taste

Lots of synergy between the nose and the palate. A similar fruitiness, but there are also some funkier notes, almost like an Irish single pot still whiskey, with a distinct spiciness (although not quite). A hint of cough syrup. Very interesting, although I'm not completely sure how I feel about it.

Finish

Light, subtle fruits. Medium in length.

Comments

Very promising with a fantastically fruity nose, although the palate can't quite keep up. Nevertheless this is a good debut on the world stage.

Au nez,floral ,épicé,mielleux,un peu de bois et de fruits exotiques!
En bouche,des fruits frais (litchi qui m'explose en bouche!),des fruits plus madérisés aussi (cerise cuite,abricot),c'est velouté,un peu beurré!
En finale,plutôt moyenne sur du bois et des épices,les fruits semblent disparaître.
Une bonne surprise ,avec une finale trop courte et plate,mais intense aussi!

N: Rampur’s first presentation sure is a funky/pongy distillate with whiffs of copper, rubber and floral putty.


T: Bourbon corn with a buttery/copper mouthfeel. Reminds me style-wise of juice from the establishing Echlinville distillery in Ireland WB.


F: A little deodorant soap, yet not in a bad way. The finishing flavours are primitive and forever funky.


C: Doesn’t want water. Funny stuff indeed and what a bizarre way to flow on from a very fine Brora LINK
