K5 Himalayan Whisky. Image courtesy Spirits of Bhutan. This is a unique whisky blended from Scottish malts and locally-produced grain spirits from Bhutan. The nose is grassy and grainy with malt, buttered popcorn, allspice, honey, and dried figs. The taste starts with honey and caramel, then turns spicy with cinnamon, clove, and dark chocolate notes that come in with a slight citrus tartness underneath. The finish is lingering and warm with softly fading cinnamon and clove. (June, 2014)
