09 Jan Rampur Single Malt – My resolution for 2017? Try things I haven’t had before
It’s easy to fall into the habit of thinking you don’t like certain drinks, such as beer or whisky, when it’s probably more a question of not having found one you like. If you’re a whisky sceptic, say, why not try a younger, fruitier kind that has none of the peaty notes that are characteristic of many bottles of Scotch? I don’t know if I’m being unduly fanciful here, but I definitely picked up mango in Rampur Select(£40.95 The Whisky Exchange; 43% abv), a new single-malt whisky from India, as well as a touch of apricot and dried apple. It would work beautifully (well diluted) with a good chicken curry.
