    Serge says:

    Amrut 'Naarangi' (50%, OB, 900 bottles, 2014) This
    funny baby was bottled in December last year. Some orange peel had
    macerated in sherry casks, in which the spirit has then been finished.
    So, it’s well whisky, and not a liqueur or a flavoured spirit. I find
    this rather creative, but lets’ hope it won’t be sweet… Colour: reddish
    gold/copper. Nose: no obvious sweetness and no feeling of triple-sec or
    other orange-based liqueurs, which is just great. Rather some malty
    goodness, a touch of cardboard and sawdust, then plenty of dried fruits,
    including orange zests, obviously. A chalky side in the background, wet
    concrete perhaps. With water: wood and tealeaves, cardamom, caraway...
    Mouth (neat): it’s well whisky and not a liqueur, but I find it a little
    weird, really peppery, clove-y, slightly pungent, bitter… I cannot not
    think of some artichoke-based drinks such as Cynar, beer bitter,
    ultra-dry sherry… Maybe the strongest mulled wine ever? With water: gets
    rounder and sweeter – and, dare I say, better. Marmalade and green tea
    plus ginger and more cardamom. Sinking your teeth into a thick-skinned
    orange. Finish: rather long, fruitier, but this leafy side never leaves.
    Caramel in the aftertaste. Comments: a bit of an UFW (unidentified
    flying whisky), with very pleasant sides, and others that are more, say
    unlikely. SGP:461 - 78 points.

    Colour:

    Old gold.

    Smell:

    A powerful, full, lush and well balanced whisky with aromas of dried fruits (apricots, figs, oranges, peach), orange marmalade, lush sherry, lemon zest, orange liqueur, white pepper, cinnamon, cereals, barley sugar, dark honey, fresh berries (mostly strawberries, raspberries and blackberries), sultanas, nutmeg, sweet clove, creamy oak, vanilla, subtle mocha, hint of eucalyptus, the is a faint hint of smoke, new leather, subtle varnish, earthy tones and antique oak.

    Taste:

    A strong, lush, full, intense and well balanced whisky with aromas of orange syrup, peper, chili, bitter orange marmalade, blood orange, orange juice, candied orange peel, grapefruit, cloves, cinnamon, peach, apricot, dried fruits (figs, dates, clementines, sultanas), pineapple, bitter chocolate, hint of coffee, bitter tannins, new leather, old books, subtle beeswax, varnish, creamy vanilla, rich honey, breakfast cereals, hint of mint, caramel, Steamed Orange Pudding and spicy oak.

    Finish:

    A long, warm and drying finish with aromas of orange syrup, bitter orange marmalade, barley, spices, white pepper, licorice, bitter chocolate, dried fruits, orange peel, tannins and powerful oak.

    Conclusion:

    I expected a whole lot more oranges (off all kinds) on the nose in this expression. But it’s done in a subtle way and is much more balanced than I expected. The palate shows more orange flavours. It’s a lovely expression of Amrut that shows a good depth of flavours and is well balanced. For me this is a great desert dram especially in combination with a fresh backed orange and raspberry Victoria sponge.

  5. mds51 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    I would have liked a little more orange, if it is already so much touted.
    • Nose
      Dark chocolate, in the background fruits, strawberry, raspberry and who would have expected: oranges. A touch of vanilla and spice.
    • Taste
      At the beginning very soft and sweet in the mouth, then dark chocolate and light coffee notes. In the background an orange unfolds.
      The sweetness disappears and it remains the spice and some bitterness.
    • Finish
      Warming. Light, short, bitter finish.
      Spices, anise?

    Tasting Notes from Amrut Distilleries.
    • Nose
      A tug of war between Suet Pudding and dried figs with moderate teasing of orangey citrus. With time, more dried fruits evolve and is a stunner.
    • Taste
      Viscous, full bodied like a syrup transcending to slat and sweet akin to orange influence and is a joy.
    • Finish
      Slightly dry and one can neglect it. The finish is moderately sweet and a loud dance of orange on the finale.

  7. addyhd did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Naarangi' derives its name from the Hindi word, Naarangi which means "orange." It is the first single malt whisky ever produced in the world to have expressions of orange, which brings forth a new level of experimentation to the malt world.
    regulations for malt whiskies state that adding anything to a whisky disqualifies it from being called a whisky; however, Amrut who had been contemplating adding orange notes to whisky, have developed a novel solution to create Naarangi, which meets all EU guidelines. To produce this whisky, Amrut procured Olorosso Sherry from Spain and matured wine along with orange peel in it for a period of three years. The oranges for this were sourced from the tourist haven, Madikeri located in the picturesque Western Ghats of India. The wine and orange peel concoction was let to mature for 3 years in Bangalore, lending the barrel a unique orange essence.The wine and peels were then spilled and the barrels were filled with a 3-year-old matured single malt whisky and allowed to mature for 3 more years. In this period the barrels have lent the Orange characteristics to the whisky.
    900 bottles have been shipped in the first batch.

    Need to taste this again to be sure about my rating. Strong Amrut character in this one which is a compliment.
