Perched high in the Mirik Valley of the Darjeeling region, Gopaldhara tea garden grows a AV2 cultivar to produce this lot, affectionately named "Red Thunder" by its producer.

Its liquor, smooth and full bodied, boasts an aromatic finesse ranging from notes of bark and fruit to hints of spices and nuts.

The finish has a pleasant sweetness (malt) characteristic of autumn flushes.
