Radico Khaitan Limited, an Indian spirits company, unveiled its newest whisky from Rampur Distillery, Sangam World Malt Whisky, at ProWein 2023 in Düsseldorf.
According to a press release, "Sangam, a name derived from the Hindi word for 'confluence,' evokes the image of two powerful rivers merging to form something greater than the sum of their parts."
Sangam World Malt Whisky will be launched in the USA, at a retail price of $64.99 to $69.99 for a 70cl bottle and also in the EU, UK, Singapore, Australia and Travel Retail with shipments starting from April 2023.

Sangam Tasting Notes, as listed in the press release are:
Nose: "Right from the start, Sangam offers a hint of tropical fruits such as lychee, green apple, pears and apricot, followed by delicate notes of citrus and floral tones of rose and heather. The sweet aroma of honey, vanilla, and caramel toffee perfectly complement the spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. Subtle hints of salty and peat smoke embrace the senses without being overpowering."
Palate: "The palate offers a complex and creamy depth of fruity aromas that is perfectly balanced with delicate peaty and salty notes. The peat smoke gradually transitions to reveal an interplay of spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and oaky vanilla, with a hint of honey and wine-like texture."
Finish: "The finish is pleasantly long, leaving a lingering sensation on the palate, further enhancing the taste and aroma."
