4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. Koning scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Tropical
    taste and a dry and spicy finish. The power of association (with India)?
    Drinkable at this high cask strength, adding water improves it
    though
    • Nose
      Caramel,
      overripe pineapple,papaya, roasted coffee, a bit spicy and bread dough.
    • Taste
      Rather
      'hot' (alcohol, chili pepppers), pineapple sweets,vanilla, kiwi fruit
    • Finish
      Drying
      finish with dried spices (cloves,turmeric,nutmeg), sweet vanille, some
      cardboard en a hint of smoke

  2. Ivynor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The difference with the 46% version is very surprising. Is dilution done with poor spring water? Are the barrels the same? Is there the same aging?
    In any case, much more convincing.
    84+ / 85-
    • Nose
      Nose very fruity, pleasant, greedy. Wow, what a difference with the 46% version! Honey, lots of caramel cream, vanilla, pastry, a little sherry. No bitterness.
      Empty glass a lot more on cereals
    • Taste
      slightly creamy texture, caramel, vanilla, spices, dark chocolate. Alcohol very well integrated (the version was slightly diluted from 70% to 61.8%)
      Alas a little bitterness, but not too disturbing.
    • Finish
      Medium, vanilla, caramel, some dark chocolate.
      Bitterness tip.

  3. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Fruity - tropical fruits, chocolate - white chocolate, plums and pastry. Nuts, vanilla, cactus, apple and coconut. Caramel, mandarins, cotton candy, lemon and syrup. 
    • Taste
      Fruity - melon, green banana and kiwi. Boullion, some leather and grains - malty.
    • Finish
      Medium drying, fruity, grains, banana and some polish.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I can't say that I was fond of every Amrut I've tried so far, but this is definitely a nice one. Quite youthful still, but very tasty. I'll be looking out for a large bottle of this batch.
    • Nose
      Toffee, apricot, papaya, cayenne pepper, malt, blossom and pecan nut.
    • Taste
      Peach, caramel, pepper, peanut and milk chocolate. With water some malt comes up.
    • Finish
      Toffee, pepper, apricot and curry.
