I was searching for some of my notes for a Glen Grant and discovered that, in fact, not only had I never typed them up, I never typed up any notes from a tasting session back in October. Memory fades, but tasting notes are... slightly less ephemeral.

Nose: Lots of malt and cereal at first blush. Very fruity and heavy on the tropical. Pineapple and lemon zest for that touch of bitterness. This reminds me of a classic Clynelish profile, only less smoky and waxy. There's something of corn-stalks and buttered biscuits. It's interesting, to say the least.

Palate: Silky and supple texture. Honey, beeswax, light dates for the slightly darker note, and more lemon. And pineapple. It takes a malty and peppery turn on the tongue at the end.

Finish: There's a slight smokiness, but it's extremely mellow. The same fruits, though new flavors emerge: cardamom, oak (or oaky cardboard), all-spice, and thinned honey. Light and pleasantly inoffensive. It doesn't quite go on or have a full finish, but it's nice.

This one was given a B+ by the LA Whisky Society. Four reviewers. sounds like the finished lowered the rating for you. Thanks for the review, Numen!

Sure thing! It's always just fun to taste lots of different things. It got a split score from LAWS - 2 Bs and 2 B+s, but I guess that it aggregated to a B+. I haven't had much from Amrut, but I've enjoyed what I have tried.
