Gold color. Aromas and flavors of peat and iodine this smells like islay, cedar, honey, and lemongrass, baked peach and dry mango, and peach smoked bbq dry rub with a round, crisp, dry medium-to-full body and a peppery, engaging, medium-long finish with accents of peat smoked tropical fruitcake, salt and band-aid, dry mango, and honey malt. Smoky and salted dry mango with plenty of wood and grain notes; curious yet delicious.

Whiskey became part of Indian culture due to the British rule and influence; today, it is quite popular. Much Indian rums is based on molasses, which makes these products actually closer to rum, but in recent decades, traditional whiskeys, made from malted grains, are now being produced and there are even single malts made in India. There are a little more than a dozen distilleries in the country and India is one of the largest producers of whiskey in the world.
