No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Raisins, cumin, butter, pot pourri, warm bread. Peshwari Naan filling.
Palate: Raisins and peach syrup. Some European tannins.
Finish: Sweet malt and some grassiness.
Comment: Slight spiciness adds some zing to an otherwise pleasingly sweet dram.
Nose: Immensely complex and mature with great breadth of aromas. Weighty but with fragrant spice. In time polished oak giving it balancing dryness.
Palate: Layers of complexity with honeyed rich fruits cut through with citrus and spice. Concentrated, luscious, a slow-motion explosion.
Finish: Long, elegant, balanced.
Comment: This is head and shoulders above everything else in this tasting. Fills all the senses.
