    Well it's good, the 50% is perfect and even very soft.

    It's a lot less complex than I thought, but it's not negative when I say that. It's hot, spicy, you can smell peat in the form of a nice smoke. She brings a lot.

    I was curious about the unpeated version (https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/41712/amrut-2004) but besides the fact that I wouldn't auction € 700 for it, I think the same thing without any peat should have much less interest.

    The cereal finish is super tasty. Really nice.

    Tasting: September 2021
    • Nose
      82 82
      Citrus, orange peel, floury, sweet red apple. Almonds, dates and summer fruits. Freshly cut hay and some white spirit. The nose is younger and rawer than expected.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Spices, marzipan, almond paste, freshly cut hay and hot pears. Well balanced between bitter, sweet and a little sour.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Spicy, wet hay, a little ginger and some woody bitterness.

    A macallan-lover's wet dream. I spent an hour smelling it, unable to give it a taste. That's how fruitily fragrant it is.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Marzipan, maple syrup and molasses over dates. So fruity it could pass for quality rum if you're not careful.
    • Taste
      88 88
      A little lighter, and not so thick a mouthfeel as I'd like from it, but the aromas carry over well from the nose. A slight hint of wood or smoke?
    • Finish
      88 88
      A little thin, but still plenty. Generic sherry notes linger.

    • Taste

  7. EvilAFI scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This to me is a kirsch soaked Black Forest Cale with lemon zest. Inviting and intriguing
    • Nose
      89 89
      Fruit salad, cocoa, vanilla, citrus, caramel sherry and bourbon notes, has a “tang”
    • Taste
      91 91
      Soft entry, thick and oily, vanilla and caramel (vanilla taffy?), very dessert like, black cherry lemon, light oak,
    • Finish
      90 90
      Whipped cream, milk chocolate, lemon zest

    • Nose
      Unusual. Sweet and fruity and yet a little peat. The sherry barrel contributes the fruit notes. I can discover a little cocoa and chocolate and yet peat resonates. Very flattering and no stinging alcohol.
    • Taste
      Also on the palate only a subtle, slowly budding hot pepper. Nice sweet fruits like papaya and pineapple.
    • Finish
      Here the leather armchair comes out with a slight menthol note. Then a little dry and mild spiciness.

      Interesting nose. Definitely something new and different. My immediate thought is pastries, cookies and caramel. Sweet, dried fruits.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Woody, quite spicy. Light, but filling. Warming. Cinnamon, caramel.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium-long. Woody bitterness - warming.

    Good whisky. But for the price you can expect more. Therefore only 87 points from me.
