Other reviews... This is the world's first Indian wine cask-finished whisky, produced in the foothills of the Himalayas. Anup Barik, Rampur's master distiller, is in impeccable form here, re-casking mature whisky into Indian cabernet sauvignon barrels and monitoring them judiciously to find the perfect balance. Enticing aromas of damson, black currant, aromatic spices, vanilla essence, and pipe tobacco rise from the glass. The jammy autumnal fruits are immediate and compelling on the palate, developing red cherry, honey, peppery spice, and candied peel notes. Delectable expressions from this nation are flourishing, and with Asava, Rampur has beautifully captured the spirit of Indian whisky. 93 points - whiskyadocate.com

...this is a distillery I first visited over 25 years ago and have held them in high esteem for that amount of time,. Here they have worked exceptionally hard to get the balance between the fruit and oak into as complex a form as possible - and have largely pulled it off. The fifth to tenth flavour waves are borderline perfect. American bourbon barrels and Indian red wine casks. Non chill filtered. 92.5 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2022
