One of the most highly regarded whiskies to come out of India’s malt whisky industry.
Greedy Angels is so named as the Angel’s Share (the amount of spirit lost to evaporation each year) is about 12% in Bangalore, where this bottling is produced. For context, distillery’s in Scotland can expect to lose about 2% to evaporation a year.
This means that there is a great wood to spirit ratio, and that the spirit reacts with the compounds in the casks faster – essentially, that maturation is accelerated.
The result is a whisky that has developed an incredible intensity and complexity in a short amount of time. Drinkers can expect notes of charred oak, liquorice, cranberries, cherries, raspberries and toffee, accompanied by some tropical fruit flavours of mango and pineapple, and a little nutmeg and peppery spice.
Bottled at a warming 50% ABV, and without chill filtration or colouration, the drinker can enjoy this whisky in its full glory.
One of the best Indian whiskies ever produced, this is a delight to the senses.
