Released at the beginning of 2021, Bagheera (the Hindi name for 'black panther') is a limited edition single malt produced at the Indian malt distillery in Bangalore. Distilled from predominantly unpeated malt and finished in sherry casks. Bottled at 46%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Rich dried fruits and pungent herbs. Dried dates, cherries, and overripe oranges offered up a sweet fruity sherry driven aroma. Pepper and fenugreek came to mind as the dram took an herbal turn with background notes of salt, leather, and medicinal herbs. Occasional hits of sulphur and plasticine.
Medium to light body with nice oily viscosity and notes of molasses and dried fruits. Opened right away with fruit— dried dates, bitter oranges, lime zest, and prunes. Dry woody notes of antiques accompanied rich molasses which transitioned toward milk chocolate on the back palate. Pleasant notes of lemon-lime and brown sugar appeared at the end with a subtle tobacco spice.
