Tasting Notes by Nozinan
Amrut Portonova continues in the distillery's innovative style. For details on the production of this single malt it is best to refer to the official website, but in simple terms, the spirit is aged in traditional casks, followed by further maturation in casks which used to contain port. Finally, there is further maturation in traditional, I believe ex-bourbon, casks.
It's is a rich, strong Whisky, not for the faint of heart. Some might call it a "Quinta Ruban" on steroids.
The nose : Sweet, fruit, rich, warm. Vanilla and spices in the background Taste: warm, sweet , prunes, rich again. Spiciness, likely from the high alcohol
Finish becomes dry, with a mild citrus aftertaste.
It's is an excellent dram! Let's hope batch number one is not the last one we see!
