I tried this Whisky in December for the first time,and finally got to open my first bottle at home in April. Recently decanting what was left into a smaller bottle.... A little left over.

Nose: rich, chocolate is the main smell. Sweet wine and ripe fruit. A "little" sherry.

Taste. Mmmmmmmm. Chocolate, more chocolate. And tastes even better with milk chocolate ( quality creamy stuff, not president's choice).

I could sip this for hours. Actually, I nose it for hours with occasional sips. At 57% you want to drink this slowly...

Beautiful dram!

Hey @Nozinan

I just picked up a bottle of this and it has a very distinct vegetal/almost wet oak nose, taste and finish that I can't seem to get past. I didn't come across any mention of this in any of the rave reviews for the stuff.

This being the first Amrut I've tried. Any info you could give would be great. Like perhaps I got a bad bottle or perhaps that's just the Indian barley/oak taste?

I would check which batch you have. I believe this went from a one-time bottling to the standard range.

I would ask whether you tasted this before or AFTER other whiskies. This is a single malt that I have noticed does not do as well after other drams. I had it after A'Bunadh and after Amrut CS and both times I was less impressed. As the first dram, it is fabulous.

Batch 4. I don't remember if it was the first of the night.

I'll have to try again and check back.

Batch 4 from 2011. So, it should be an early bottle in the US at least?
