This malt started off the maturation process in the heat of India. It was then moved to an undisclosed European location for final maturation. That slowed down the aging process enough to let this whisky develop an unusual nose. It takes time to reveal, but shows a dry and clean nose that is slightly malty with notes of roasted cashews. The taste is mouth-filling, thick and chewy with notes of black licorice, cinnamon, and cumin. It’s slightly tart with notes of lemon and molasses. The finish is long and lingering, slightly smoky and nutty.
