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.

Color
Old gold
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
