description

It’s time for yet another season of the delicate and tender spring. And with it we get the most awaited delights like this exotic black from one of our favorite Darjeeling estates. The cool air and the fleeting sun makes this liquor redolent of the fresh flowers of spring like white lilies and geraniums. Light and extra smooth, the floral notes strike you right from the start and grow throughout. Nuanced hints of ripe fruits similar to muskmelon come along the middle and layer the cup beautifully. There is a citrusy tinge toward the end which fuses with refreshing notes of spring sap that makes up an outstanding aftertaste. Steep it one more time to relish flavors of raw mango and is best served iced for an incredible experience.

The liquor is light-bodied, immensely smooth and tipped with fresh floral attributes. Aromatic floral notes; reminiscent of white lilies and geranium can be perceived right at the start which gradually intensify and give the cup a sweet, floral character. Intermittently, subtle undertones of ripe tropical fruits akin to muskmelon come through which complements the vibrant floral texture of the cup. Soft citrusy undercurrents interlaced with invigorating hints of spring sap can be picked up in the aftertaste; making for a memorable experience.
