  2. RJKrueger scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very nice, intensely fruity Indian single malt, if it weren't for the somewhat problematic price / performance ratio. The price ranges on the market are high, however, and a little research is worthwhile.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Fresh fruit notes with apple, mirabelle plums, orange. Then almonds, marzipan and a little vanilla in the background. Very attractive.
    • Taste
      86 86
      On the palate it comes across as sweet and strong and spicy. The 50% bring in a bit of sharpness, but do not interfere.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish could be a little longer and more lasting. A little oak comes through stronger and in the end it looks slightly soapy without this being too annoying. The finish tarnishes the positive impression of taste and nose. Here you can tell the young age.

  6. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very round and beautiful Madeira-centric malt, dear Madeira Finishes anyway, because it plays great.
    • Nose
      Beautiful dried fruit, Madeira is very noticeable, hazelnut, macadamia, beautiful honey, peach, camphor, white raisins, white tea, some ginger
    • Taste
      Madeira very much in the foreground here too, dry peach, dry orange peel, macadamia, almonds, pistachio, licorice, lavender, gentle fennel, green tea, white tea, red apple, forest honey, white raisins
    • Finish
      White raisins, dried fruit, macadamia, medium length

  7. davidloosli scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

      Fresh juicy orange, white wine (musty), christmas spices, peach, mango, sweet menthol chewing gum
    • Taste
      Earthy, tropically sweet, licorice, tabacco, sweet nuts, baklava, walnut, honey sweetness, habanero, tropical fruit
    • Finish
      Rather dry, sandalwood, figs, a bit of curry

  8. wisekycourse scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N: candied fruit at first, then the orange soaked, a little wood on the return
    it's sweet and spicy, caramel too!
    B: spices ahead, too!
    wood, toasted sensation, candied fruit still with mostly orange, cooked, overcooked, sweet caramel and vanilla, a little dark chocolate then.
    F: the spices finally leave the fruitiness and woodiness extend, the finish is average, with a touch of toast, caramelized and chocolate.

  9. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The first Indian Single Malt to have been aged in Madeira barrels. The master distiller of the Amrut distillery has created a whisky with a perfect balance where the aromas given by the barrels of Madeira express themselves subtly.
    Profile: Fruity, tinged with the signature features and aromas of Amrut.
    Nose: Almond, toffee. Coconut shavings, vanilla pod. Syrup of red sugar.
    Palate: Sweet and velvety. Almond cake, sweet orange. Toffee, pleasantly fruity.
    Finale: Refreshing. Citrus. Toffee touch.

    Good he is and interesting. Something too alcoholic maybe. 82P.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Orange. Tangerine. Some cake. Creamy. Now and then the alcohol flashes through. Oak indicates.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Sweet orange. Something lively. Also, acid is in the orange. Subtle wood in the sides. The Nachschmecken becomes drier.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Medium long, fresh and fruity. Something dry.
