A bit late hitching onto the Amrut bandwagon, but thought I'd give this expression a try while it was still available at the LCBO. This whisky definitely develops over time (for the better, in my opinion), and this review takes place about 7 months after opening.

Nose: pancakes in browned butter (yup), very subtle peat smoke, and not-so-subtle spice (clove, cinnamon, cardamom).

Palate: buttery and soft, with soft peat and smoke and a hint of mild honey for sweetness. The spice builds rapidly and is quite pronounced, penetrating the butteriness.

Finish: loooooooong......and wonderful. Lots of spice again, buffered with a nice maltiness.

Initially, the whisky had more dry peat qualities and sharper spice. These qualities mellowed considerably over the 7-month period of tasting, improving the whisky greatly. Not a 'world whisky of the year' for me, but definitely pleasant.
