Amrut Single Malt Whisky - Double Cask Testing Notes Nose : A rich, honeyed profile with loads of vanilla pods and creamy cake. Also quite floral, mainly buttercups. There’s plenty of fruits: pineapple candy, pink grapefruit, banana, caramelized apples… Apple pie. Hints of sweet oak and barley sugar. Just excellent – it’s like a Speyside grandpa with the vivacity of a youngster. Taste : More of the same (yay). A liquid fruit salad with papaya, kiwi, mango and pineapple, lifted by notes of lime. So much fruit, so much body, so much roundness. Again a coating of vanilla and powdered sugar. Subtle spices. Finish : Long and fruity. Delicate oak with cinnamon and very light pepper.
Amrut Naarangi Bottling Note The Naarangi is a very intriguing, inventive release from the Amrut distillers in India. Using casks which previously held a combination of oloroso Sherry, matured wine and orange peel for three years, they matured a three year old single malt whisky for a further three years, which has resulted in an expression with bright, expressive orange notes shining through.
