Nose: Sweet Molasses, Sugar , Some Turkish Delight. No Balsamic at all on this one, very nice clear sherry influence. Some Plums, Newly cut grass and hints of ripe oranges, and exotic fruits, i cant put my finger on. Lovely! Lovely! But, not the 'usual’ sherry notes you would expect.

Palate: Sweet, Rounded and Fruity. Not much dried fruit here, but rather spicy, and a bit lemony, if you can describe it like that. the Turkish delight form the nose pays a visit here as well. Very complex stuff. and again, not your everyday ‘sherry’. but well made.

Finish : Long, fruity and spicy. Do i sense wee peat smoke here?

Bottom line : This is not your everyday sherried whisky. The unusual maturation selection made by amrut created a whisky that is more amrut, than sherry. it’s rich, complex, and very interesting, and i like this one quite a bit. In my opinion it’s better than the Kadambham from the lovely nose to palate and finish. It’s really one of the best Amruts i’ve had. It’s true the peat is somehow lost in all this sherry thing, so don’t look for it here, but it’s an ace. No doubt. Price wise, this one is also not cheap at almost 70 GBP, but i think it’s worth getting. It’s quite unique.

I fully agree with you, Galg and it's worth every penny. Eventually I think it's the best Amrut so far!
