Colorful Whisky celebration from India.

India is one of the largest Whisky consumers in the world, but most of their domestic production is dominated by molasses-derived Spirit, which if you ask the EU, isn't even Whisky. But there are a few astonishing exceptions to the rule and it just happens that eight of the Top 10 bestselling Whiskies come from India. One of the secrets with Indian Whiskies is that the hot climate means more water evaporates during aging, making the alcohol by volume rise. Fun times!

Rampur is one of the proud exceptions, but even though they've been making Whisky for more than half a century, they only launched their first export Single Malt in 2016. And it's this bottle! This golden amber luxury is made and bottled in the foothills of the Himalayas, using six-row barley (instead of the traditional two-row variant) and if you were on the fence with this smooth criminal, some say it's the Kohinoor of Single Malts (Kohinoor being one of the largest cut diamonds). Quite a bold statement, but they might be onto something. It's lavish, it's creamy, and it's rich.

Kathryn
Kathryn,
Sweet and balanced. Lighter in flavor than the nose would suggest. Very smooth.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Lots of spice but almost too much. The spice almost completely covers the floral flavors.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, intense, Indian Single Malt Whisky with an intense birth; while a creamy life; leads to a delicate & rich death of medium length with floral notes.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
This one grew on me. At first I found the nose a bit off putting but like a strange, extremely floral perfume I slowly found myself enjoying it and wanting more. Very fruity and floral with a strong spicy finish. Started out neat but finished the last of the dram with a drop of spring water which really opened it up. This one will be going in my bar as soon as I find it. Very enjoyable. I got this is in Asia & Oceania Vol 2 tasting box and must admit this box was my first whisky adventure outside of North American, Scotland and Ireland and so far the box is 2 for 2. I'm glad Flaviar is opening up my mind!

Corey,
I did not like this all that much. Overall, feels like it was bottled too soon. Strong rubbing alcohol type flavor overwhelms everything else.
 
Sonali
Sonali,
Strong aromatics of apple, caramel, and melon. Very spicy with a slight smokiness. The melon and chocolate flavors come through if you hold the drink in your mouth a bit. A unique whisky.

John,
Definitely fruity.
 
Gabriel
Gabriel,
Surprisingly good. First few tastes I was unsure, but as I finished the glass I became a fan. First impression is LOTS of apple and pear, and very aromatic — almost too floral. As my palette adjusted to the drink, the apple and citrus finish were great, lingering like a fresh apple juice in the mouth. Might grab a bottle sometime, great sipper.
 
Doug
Doug,
I don't know what I was expecting, but an immediate spice with a lingering flavor of melon on a floral background is interesting. I can't distinguish the apple from the pear, but if you like your whisky on the sweet and floral side, with a bit of a kick up front, this one is for you.
 
Rahul
Rahul,
This is different. An immediate spicy taste, a little taste of pear, and then a very, sweet finish but still quite nice and that too from someone who doesn’t like sweet.
 
Tyler
Tyler,
A lot on the nose - floral/hoppy like a beer, citrus, vanilla. The palate left quite a bit to be desired, but a lot of pear/apple with some wood/oak and sugar. The finish was very thin and water, but sweet and smooth.
 
Deja
Deja,
It's pretty good. Complicated.
 
Logan
Logan,
Good, not great. Overly sweet for my taste. Fruits come through well, but not enough to balance the caramel.
 
Katherine
Katherine,
The Apple and Pear combine to something like black licorice. Not my favorite
