  3. peatbogger scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Mellow, well behavioured dram.
    • Nose
      This started of close to a calvados nose, but with the sensory tool a bit deeper in the glass it comes across like a gentle lowland, reminding me of the bottle of GM Rosebank I got.

      Sweet fruity floral notes.

      Apple, peach, passion, orange.

      Soft and subtle.
    • Taste
      Loads of fruit, but also quite a bit of spice.

      The spice make it bolder and more powerful than implied by the nose, but it's counter ballanced by zesty citrus, keeping the fresh impression.

      There's also some nutty stuff mingling from midway.
    • Finish
      Those nuts that start off about midway evolve into the finish and take over, getting roasted, dry and quite bitter.

    I tried this whisky at a festival a couple of years back and made a mental note to pick one up if I saw it. The price is great too.

  5. karloff scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    Another great whisky from India, very fruity and it goes down far to easily. I think the percentage stops you from getting carried away. 
    • Nose
      Smells almost like a Rye on first nosing. There is passion fruit, ginger cake, orange chocolate, custard cream biscuit, space dust I used to get when I was a kid, that stuff that crackled in your mouth and lilac flower.  
    • Taste
      Tropical fruits in a cocktail, very drinkable and very pleasant. I detect a little bit of smokiness in the background. Bubble gum and again that orange citrus. The 46% is spot on. 
    • Finish
      A medium and quite astringent finish with rhubarb and custard.
