It is has taken nearly 15 month, but our first exclusive Amrut cask is finally here. Bottled at 60% after finishing in a Virgin oak cask, this 2010 vintage 6 year old whisky is one of the oldest Amruts ever to come to Canada (excepting the Greedy Angels).Only 94 bottles came from the cask, and just 90 of those found their way to Canada. The colour is massively dark and all natural.
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: massive, big molasses notes, enormous spices and rough leather notes; under the beastly virgin oak notes there are some tropical and citrus fruits; heavy candied orange, barely ripe cantaloupe, green mango, cola cubes and Demerara sugars; the spices cross the gamut from light and decadent to heavy and dark.
Palate: enormous cola notes hit before the whisky is even on the tongue: cola cubes, 1608 Cola, light maple syrup and both Demerara and moist brown sugar; the fruits are still there, struggling under waves of vanilla, sugars and building spices; more cantaloupe (especially into the finish), waxy mango and candied orange; the spices are more restrained on the palate than the nose reminding me of a classic Old Fashioned cocktail.
Finish: long, seemingly never ending... the sugars, cola, vanilla and maple syrup notes linger long; the gentle wood and spices even longer; the fruits are there but just an accent.
Comment: wow, this is the most decadent Amrut I've ever had; big sugars, bright fruits and the cola notes... this one won't last long once people get a chance to sample it!
