The second segment(Technical details that are mostly available on a google search)

This is my third post related with liquor from Nepal. I have previously posted Khukuri rum & Old Durbar. Bandipur Blended Malt- There is almost no information available on the internet about the distillery. In my analysis, it is like a private label scotch. Whisky is imported in barrels from Scotland but filled in bottles with a label on it, in this case Bandipur. 
Reads the product story "Nepal's first 100% pure blended malt whisky. Made exclusively in small batches in collaboration with Macduff International ". Not clear what it is blended with? The website is not accessible so not much information there. The taste will feel familiar because it is Scotch but just labeled differently!
Too much analysis, now its time to taste it. Enjoy my tasting notes!
