Indian Single Malt – 64.3%, 70 cl
Single Cask no. 4135 – Oloroso Sherry
The Amrut distillery uses barley grown in the north of India, which is then malted in Jaipur and New Delhi. Climatic conditions in the area mean that the angel’s share can reach 12% annually, creating very concentrated aromas.
Bottling is carried out without chill-filtration. Aged in oloroso sherry casks, this version is the third and final instalment in a colourful triptych dedicated to India’s most renowned single malts.
With incredible freedom of expression and immense complexity, this Amrut’s palette of flavours and aromas is quite simply spellbinding.
The very complex first nose is fruity, chocolatey, vegetal (verbena) and spicy (cinnamon). Allowed to breathe, it becomes floral (lily), rich (cake) and exotic (passion fruit). Notes of red and black fruits (raspberry, bramble).
The enchanting attack is oxidative (cherry brandy). It then develops tertiary (pipe tobacco, mocha), spicy (turmeric) and jammy (quince jam) tones. The juicy (wild peach) and roasted (coffee) finish reveals a perfect osmosis between the malted barley and oloroso sherry.
