Liquid Gold from Goa, India.
'Edited' is a lightly peated Indian single malt whisky created by Master Distiller Michael John using Indian 6-row barley as well as peated Scottish barley. A big seller since Michael toured Tasmania in 2016. The final vatting contains 15% of the peated spirit with maturation taking place in ex-Bourbon casks. The hint of peat has been skilfully created from discreetly chosen cask profiles. All to delight the true whisky connoisseur.
Nose: Toasted grain, big barley and honey notes, Hob Nobs! Slightly vegetal peatiness, lemon and seaweed. Some campfire smoke but the peat isn't overpowering. Malty.
Palate: Wood spices, porridge with honey and then demerara whilst sat beside a fireplace.
Finish: A touch of mocha, oak and perhaps old fashioned liquorice.
Non chill filtered with natural colouring. Great price and even better flavour.
