The brand is named after Mt. Kamet, the third-highest peak in the Indian Himalayas. Kamet Single Malt, a whisky venture by Madya Beverages, Peak Spirits, and Piccadily Distillery. Piccadily is also the distillery behind the Indian whisky brand Indri. The distillery is based in Kurukshetra, India – land of the Hindu epic Mahabharata. They have a wine-driven approach, where they focus on using sherry casks along with red wine for maturation.
The maturation process in India is exceptional. Temperatures can range from 0 to 50 Celsius. The humidity levels also vary with high humidity in the summer and monsoon months and low humidity in the winter. Conditions are tasking on the whisky especially due to a lot of interaction between whisky and wood of the barrels leading to oak forward maturation notes in the whisky, and resulting in angel’s share of 11 to 12% annually.
Kamet is distilled using six-row barley grown in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is aged in a combination of Ex-Bourbon American oak, Ex-Wine French Oak, and Ex-Sherry Casks (Pedro Ximenez & Oloroso). Kamet is a non-chill filtered whisky and has no added color.
Brand Tasting Notes: The nose delivers a vinous fruity profile with oaky spicy notes. Complimented with vanilla, caramel & subtle raisins, and nutty & sweet dark chocolate to top it off. The palate is a lively entry with vinous fruitiness & a spicy vibrancy. Vanilla notes exhibit a melted concoction of fresh & dried fruit notes. Subtle hints of oaky vanilla, spice & dark chocolate linger in its depths. The finish is a long warm complex nutty finish with balanced dry & sherried sweetness lingering on the palate with spicy oak & tannins to provide added zest.
Holly’s Tasting Notes: Cinnamon raisin bread soaked in red wine, plums, and chocolate wafer cookies. The palate is juicy with oak spice. It has a rich fruit punch quality with more creamy milk chocolate and sweet baking spices and coffee on the finish.
