TASTING NOTE LMDW
Under the climate of Bangalore, whiskys age quickly and the angels' share is considerable. This is the case for this single cask selected by La Maison du Whisky which shows a loss of 39% and is exceptionally fine. If one adds to that the sherry which insinuates with sweetness in each of the aromas and in each of the flavors which it deploys, one obtains a Amrut resplendent of maturity and complexity.
Profile: ample, powerful. White peaches, candied oranges, nuts and peonies occupy the front of a floral and fruity scene. Mineral, chocolate and spicy notes.
Color: topaz with copper highlights.
Nose: ample, rich. Full of dynamism and recoil on itself, the first nose is of exceptional power. White peaches, candied oranges, walnuts and peonies form a picture where fruits and flowers blend harmoniously. Mineral, it evolves on dark chocolate and strong spices (pepper, clove, nutmeg).
Palate: both firm and unctuous. Lightly tart, it first offers stewed fruits (Mirabelle, plum), fresh and oily nuts and citrus fruits (bitter orange). The mid-palate is marked by noble spices (cardamom, curry, saffron). It is prolonged with delicacy on notes of rum baba and frangipane.Final: long, silky. Sherry affixes a delicately roasted signature (tobacco) and heady (musk, honeysuckle). Its smooth tannins coat honey (acacia) and milky notes (vanilla, crème fraîche). The retro-olfaction is liquorice and floral (tuberose, lilac purple). The empty glass is fruity (apricot, white peach).
