    taste

    A full-bodied, well-rounded, mellow cup which beams with robust notes of malt and yellow raisins right from the start. These flavors stay throughout the length of the cup; interrupted briefly by subtle floral tones around the edges; adding a layer of depth, vivacity and pleasant texture to the liquor. Gentle hints of maple syrup shore up towards the end; which however ebb to finish on a delectable note of red berries - making for a classic cup of Assam orthodox from this iconic estate.
