    Peatbogger has got this spot on. In no way a great whisky, and I struggle to even call it a good one. I don't like slightly overwooded cognac, I like whisky, if you like cognac you should buy this because that is what the profile is, it doesn't taste like whisky. 
    I have tried a few of the Amrut 'whiskies' and have now decided that they are not to my taste, they are overly spicey, hot, and cognacy..... they lack class, finesse and are just not that good.

    Massively overrated. I wonder why certain people think so highly of them....Could be a matter of taste...but when people call what I consider overt dryness and wood-overdose 'star anise' you have to wonder.... I dunno. Perhaps just a matter of taste.This is a heady whisky imitation made in India but cunningly marketed as an above premium product.

    The marketting department of Amrut are the real craftsmen in this operation in my opinion. I'll finish the bottle.....but it's not much of joy.

    Light sherry, hints of citrus fruits, good sweetness but not sticky, no sulphur and no leather - just young and easy drinkable. OK, the price should be lower but why not?

    In no way a great whisky.

    Over exposed and extreme.... I like extreme, so a few points scored. The rest is for ompf and spice attack.
    • Nose
      Quite dark in color.

      Heavy sherry notes, wet and slightly sulphoric wood.

      Hint of oranges. Some more crisp red berry notes emerging over time.

      Alc is a bit "in your face" but then again it is 57,1% however it contributes towards a feeling of a volatile liquid.
    • Taste
      Hot, peppery spice,

      Buckets of thick bitter prune juice.

      Burnt liqorice.

      These two notes actually over power whatever else there may be.
    • Finish
      Medium lenght.

      Starting of on the burnt substance feeling that is getting rather unpleasant.

      Ends on a slightly better dark bitter chocolate note.
