This port matured Amrut was a big hit at the Victoria Whisky Festival in 2011 and one of my favourite whiskies at the show. This limited edition expression has been bottled at a cask strength of 62.1%.
Distiller's Tasting Note
Nose: A Thick pudding of a nose; fruit and caramel have merged into one slightly over-oaked soup; burnt apple pie
Taste: 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
