Raksi -white whiskey

The first segment(Mostly not available on google search)

Occasions, Tips, alternates, cocktails, food pairings, SJ's Rating, Feel

SJ's Rating- Middle Shelf
I had Nepali rakshi before and compared to that this is way smoother. I believe it is an acquired taste since it is made of millet which is why it is in my middle shelf. Have yet to try their other expression-aged rakshi which will be my next venture. 
Occasion- Bbq at friend's place
SJ's Pro tip- Sample very little if it is your first time, pour some more if you like it
Alternates- Traditional rakshi made in Nepal
Food Pairing- Chicken bbq
Feel(After Drinking)- Pleasantly surprised

The Second Segment(Technical details that are mostly available on google search)

The product story goes "Raksi is the traditional Nepalese drink of celebration. But you don't need to be in the Himalays to make Raksi part of your festivities. We distill this authentic velvety rugged white whiskey to bring craft taste to every occasion. With Raksi on hand, every day is a reason to celebrate"
Well said, Rakshi is an acquired taste so it will take some time to adjust to your palate if you like it.
