Indian whiskies are fruity and malty. They are often examples of youthful exuberance, enjoyable and of a defined style in their own right. Plenty of tropical fruit and toffee, of late there have been a few peaty offerings too. India’s climate proffers a speedy maturation. The temperature is such that the angel’s share accounts for a loss of around twelve percent alcohol by volume per annum. Thus, Indian whiskies tend to be much younger than their Scottish counterparts.
