So the cask strength single malt from Amrut (Batch 54), what’s it like then. I think it’s a non-chill filtration with no added colour.

It’s a spirity esters with orange honeycomb and something to do with new-born babies on the nose (maybe even baby vomit). A little bit of sawdust mixed in to, but not in a good way. It’s rocket fuel neat (61% Abv), on first taste, way too hotter burn for me. With water we are better, light fruits come through with a bit of sweetness (and that baby element, that I still can’t decide if it’s good) but you can tell it’s very young. Too many youthful phenolic esters (read raw hot spirity). We then finish on oaky sawdust in an ok way.

So would I recommend for the price. No, I’m afraid not. Some of our panel of tasters refused to finish it!

Mind you I think the distillate itself is of very good quality.

Do you feel good after a few drams? Mmmm it’s kinda of a neutral effect.
