  1. Ivynor scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Good surprise, a beautiful nose. By cons, where is the peat?
    • Nose
      Creamy, slightly smoky, especially exotic fresh fruit (pineapple, passion), lemon and orange zest, spices (cumin, white pepper), very nice nose!
    • Taste
      Alcohol well integrated, slightly creamy, just the sugar it takes. Very little smoke but a little ashes, plum brandy. Fine peppered mouth. Better with water, more fruity and creamy.
    • Finish
      quite short, surprising despite the 62.8% ... Power of alcohol and spices

    1. Glass 86
    Pleasant nose, ham I can not find, rather peaty smoke. Sherry, but more in the taste than in the nose. Good for water. Smoke is stronger in taste than in the nose. Nice medium-long aftertaste, not bitter at all.
    I thought the Indians can only with computer. Where did they get their peat from?
    2. times) Pur I actually taste better than with water. Much sweeter, the smoke blends well with it. Pur, the aftertaste is also much more persistent. 87th

  3. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Peat, ashes, meaty and smoked ham. Fruity, cactus, minty, pastry and citrus. Very sophisticated citrus and fruity notes in this Amrut.
    • Taste
      Leather, oily, fruity and peat. Later ashes and coconut.
    • Finish
      Medium drying, fruity, vanilla, some smoke and syrup. Orange peel and bitter like a bitter beer.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    It's OK but I have to say that I like both the older (more heavily) peated batch 13 and the simultaneously released regular cask strength (batch 66) better. The sulphur, although not extreme, is a bit disturbing in the taste of this one. Still a decent whisky though.
    • Nose
      Peat, toffee, red paprika powder, milk chocolate, cayenne pepper, sulphur, malt, whipped cream, vanilla, peach and a whiff of cow pat.
    • Taste
      Peat, pepper, toffee, peach, salami and sulphur.
    • Finish
      Peat, toffee and dark chocolate.
