Rampur Double Cask Single Malt
Rampur // India
Rampur distills and matures its single malt whisky at the foothills of the Himalayas. The locale provides an extreme climate variation between summer and winter seasons, beneficial for the rapidity of maturation. Rampur Double Cask is aged first in bourbon barrels and then undergoes a shorter finishing time in sherry casks. The whisky is non-chill filtered and bottled at 45% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask TypeAmerican oak ex-bourbon and European oak ex-sherry
"The nose offers honey drizzled berries, with floral notes of hay and chrysanthemum bud, a slight nutty rancio, and toffee. The palate is waxy, offering dark chocolate malt balls, tannic oak, and vanilla, with a sulfurous and meaty side towards the back. The finish is moderate in length, with salted pretzels dipped in caramel, wood spice, and dried fruits."
