    taste

    A full-bodied, lively cup which starts with robust notes of malt interlaced with a sweet texture of date palm. These flavors envelop the palate right at the start and resonate throughout the length of the liquor. Subtle undertones of yellow raisins interlaced with furtive notes of dried drupes are discernible towards the middle and around the edges, adding a vivacious intensity and depth to the cup. Nuanced notes of cocoa shore up towards the end which gradually ebb to finish on delectable tones of dry apricot; making for an exquisite cup of Assam Summer black this season.
