Kanya Single Malt - 7 Year Old Indian WhiskyRegular price £193.14
This exotic unpeated expression of Kanya derives from the sunny shores of Goa, encapsulates a tender innocence enhanced with hints of honeyed fruitiness and a soft tinge of spice. Ruled by Mercury and symbolised by the virgin, Kanya is the dignified Indian counterpart of the highly appealing Virgo, the sixth zodiac sign of the universe. With its earthy, feminine sensuousness, this deep amber expression personifies the intrinsic characteristics of the Kanya. Matured for 7 years in American white oak casks, its delectable aromas of citrusy spice and tropical fruit lures you to savour its creamy, butterscotch sweetness. The satisfying finish of toasted oak with warm wafts of spice has just the slightest hint of salt, making it ever more memorable. With rare complexities and an exquisitely balanced dryness, the Kanya, in all its luscious allure, is perhaps one of the softest Indian whiskies ever to be bottled. Only 1,500 bottles were produced. In Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2018, this expression was awarded a staggering 96 points and the title of Best Asian Whisky 2018! Nose: A light citrus with manuka honey arrives early; an intense malt is infused with ripe peach, apricot and vanilla. Palate: Superb mouthfeel of rich creaminess. The oak delivers a soft, sweet, delectable butterscotch. Finish: Warm spices suffuse the toasted oak, and the slightest of saltiness ensures the friendliest of finishes.
