SINGLE MALT WHISKY / 700ML / 62.1% ABV.
Another interesting whisky from Amrut, this is unpeated single malt which has been first matured in new American oak and ex-bourbon casks before bering finished in port pipes from Portugal.
Nose: A thick pudding of a nose; fruit and caramel have merged into one slightly over-oaked soup; burnt apple pie.
Palate: This is essentially a port pipe sandwich.... and it shows. The spicy, jammy fruit is interwoven through any amount of caramel while the oaky saltiness gets the taste buds both salivating and puckering until you run dry.
Finish: Long, massive oak with quite evident traces of the virgin barrels now detectable. And more of a cocoa hue as it progresses. At last some muscovado sugars arrive to supplant the berry fruits.
