This was my introduction to Indian whiskey. Just like my introduction to Indian food, I felt a little overwhelmed by the unfamiliar flavors and complexity.
I was not a fan of the nose of this at all. It smelled like cleaning chemicals and a campfire. On the tongue the alcohol was overwhelming, but so were the many other notes: smoke, grain, spices and nut. And then on the way out there's a strong kick of alcohol and smoke.
This is not a whiskey for the faint of heart, but it would likely be great with Indian food which needs a strong complement.
