    aroma

    Pronounced notes of malt, dates, hints of apricot along with muted tones of yellow raisins

    appearance

    Dark amber

    taste

    A full-bodied, brisk cup which beams with delectable notes of malt interlaced with a sweet texture of date palm. These flavors envelop the palate right at the start and hums along throughout the length. Delicate accents of stone-fruits akin to apricot are discernible around the edges, adding more depth and mellow character to the liquor. Muted cocoa-like undertones come through towards the finish which gradually subside to finish on a delightful note of yellow raisins, making for a distinguished experience of Summer Assams this season.
