I loved Amrut Sherry, and so I decided to pick this one up as well, having heard so much good stuff said about it. Well, I think I'm in love...
NOSE: a hint of smoked paprika and peat, very much not like any Scotch whisky I've tried. You can tell right off the bat that this one is definitely not Scotch. Big sugary nose with a lot of preserved fruit, brown sugar, moist vanilla cake, buttery pastry, cardamom, aromatic oak. Water brings forward more tropical fruits, pineapples,Sauvignon Blanc type aromas, lemon, orange. 23/25
TASTE: honey with some sour notes, vanilla sponge cake with nice oak in the background. It's like taking a bite of some delicious cupcake with honey poured all over it. Some spice here as well. With water, more mineral, lemon, pineapple, more black Ceylon tea notes as well. Pistachios. 23/25
FINISH: warm, preserved white fruit, warming, a hint of peat, black tea. 23/25
OVERALL IMPRESSION: I find that just like in music, and other forms of art, when something is SOOO well-done, you don't really have words to describe it. You just sit there and take it all in. This is exactly the way I feel about this whisky.
