  3. ovanpuyvelde scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This Whisky definitely needs a generous splash of water to take away the sharp, alcoholic taste. After doing that, this is in fact an excellent bang-for-your-buck whisky!

    Serge says:

    Amrut 'Portonova Batch No. 5' (62.1%, OB, 2014)
    You may know about the story, this wee baby was first matured in
    American oak, then Port pipes, then American oak again. I remember the
    first batch did win Silver and a Best Cask Innovation Award at the Malt
    Maniacs Awards 2011. My own score for that one: 89. Colour: deep gold.
    Nose: one of those unlikely tries that just work. Perfect nose, fresh
    and fruity, with blood oranges, a winey touch, some tobacco, and then
    glasses and glasses of multi-vitamin fruit juice. There’s also a perfect
    toffee/café latte note. With water: having Kaffee-Kuchen with good
    friends and a great bottle of PX. Mouth (neat): not too syrupy, very
    fruity (grapes), fresh… and very hot, almost burning. I need my throat,
    so… With water: a little less ‘immediate’ than the bourbon that we just
    had, but the fresh fruitiness just works again. Cranberries, other small
    berries, sweets, and then a spice mix that may well be Indian (some
    kind of great curry)… Finish: long, with a perfect balance between the
    fruits and the spices. Comments: same score as four years ago, no doubt
    about that. They have a great recipe, worth the trouble. SGP:651 - 89 points.
