description

The muscatel is a Darjeeling summer specialty produced in small volumes and with a legion of loyal followers who wait for it. The leaves chosen for making the muscatel are subjected to a short wither and long oxidation and this helps extract sweet, fragrant red wine-like notes that resemble the Muscat grape, from where it gets its name. This muscatel hails from the Seeyok estate.

aroma:
Marked by notes of peaches, grape seed, and wood.
appearance:
Light amber
taste:
The liquor starts out on a dry, brisk note, but turns flavorful in the middle. Tart notes of plum and grape seed become prominent here. Undertones of licorice and fennel are discernible, more noticeably so in the aftertaste. The liquor, although sharp at times, is largely smooth, full-bodied and ample in the mouth.
COMPLEMENTS:
Ideal with a hearty breakfast spread.
