Rampur Indian Single Malt Whisky

Many countries other than Scotland or Ireland are now producing premium whiskies that are very much up to par with their British counterparts. Among these countries, India offers a remarkable product in the form of Rampur Single Malt, a beautiful whisky that is not chill-filtered and is matured in the foothills of the Himalayas. It should be noted that due to climatic conditions, spirits produced in India generally distinguish themselves by the fact that they mature much more quickly than whiskies produced in Europe.

This Rampur Single Malt that has been tasted and evaluated by the Monde Selection jury members has once again been presented with the Grand Gold Quality Award.

This very beautiful whisky is presented in a round bottle with a particularly carefully thought-out design. The bottle itself is then further contained in a cloth pouch, itself placed in a cylindrical cardboard case.

Visually speaking, this single malt presents a beautiful light amber colour without excessive caramelisation.

The nose is complex and rich with a fairly mellow alcohol scent and notes of wood, vanilla and toast.

On the palate, this whisky is highly appealing, with a powerful but non-aggressive attack. It is marked by beautiful spicy notes.

The finish is long-lasting and complex, with a very nicely pronounced endnote.

A quality ensemble which, in addition to the Grand Gold medal mentioned above, led Monde Selection tasters to nominate this very fine whisky as the winner for this year’s Jury Prize in the Spirits and Liqueurs category.

"Each year, one product per category is awarded the Prize of the Jury as a token of excellence in know-how and quality. In order to qualify, the product must be unanimously selected as a “coup de cœur” by the jury members. The winner of the Prize of the Jury is then selected from a group of just 5 nominees, which makes this award an even greater honour for the recipient."
