This fine Indian single malt is matured in Ex-Bourbon before transferring to sherry casks, which were shipped to India without sherry in them to avoid the use of a sulphur stick. The whisky is then transfered back into Ex-Bourbon for finishing.
Distiller's Tasting Note
Nose: Instead of the usual biscuit aroma, we now get moist cake. And my word: is it fruity and spicy!! Love the freshly waxed oak floor, too. Brain-explodingly complex and multi-layered with one of the most intriguing sherry-style-bourbon-style marriages on the market.
Taste: Cracking delivery and entirely unique in form. The structure is decidedly oak-based, but acts as no more than a skeleton from which the juicy sultana and spices drape. Salivating, too, as the barley kicks in powerfully. But the liquorice-orangey-honeycomb bourbon theme quietly shapes the flavour profile; the spices pulse and glow.
Finish: Quite a chunk of natural caramel quietens the more exuberant characteristics; long and elegant.
