Batch 07, Sept 2010. Found a few bottles in a local store for 60.00. I wanted to try something new, and considering some decent to great reviews, thought I would give this one a shot. I did not realize that this was a batch driven whisky (Like the A'bunadh). Based on the reviews here, this is a whisky with serious batch to batch variation.
No water. Unless I say so, all of my reviews are sans water. Very cereal in the smell. Sweet cereal. Oranges. Oatmeal and peaches. Peaches and cream. Much more cereal than fruit however. Very sweet aroma. Good swish on my first sip. Drying, hot on the tongue and the back of my throat. Alcohol heat, not pepper heat. A quick swallow delivers a better taste. Less heat.
This tastes pretty good. But not really good. I am going to enjoy this bottle, but will most likely not pick up another. Sadly, it also does not make me curious to try more Amrut whiskies. Don't get me wrong. This is not bad. I am not scoring this bad. But when we are playing in an arena of 50-100 dollar bottles, you need to distinguish yourself more than this if you expect me to continue exploring your line.
Title comes from Columbia in Rocky Horror Picture Show. And my reply is Frank N Furter's: "OK? I think we can do better than that."
