Whisky Reviews for Amrut Rye

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.90 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Just Wow ... I never had anything like that. Tropical fruits, pineapple without end, with oak, spice, mint and in fact rye bread. In the mouth then not quite as fruity, more pepper, oak, spices, and a certain bitterness. The finish is then completely on rye, mint, pineapple, bread and gummi bears. The nose is world class, the rest is a bit behind. But a really exciting, probably unique whisky ... and Single Malt Rye!

    An incredible nose: first we have the spices of rye and then behind, fresh fruit! Frangipane! Attic with cereals! But in a dry "atmosphere", specific to the rye. In the mouth, we have the classic markers of rye, as in the USA, but with a lot of roundness, fruity. What a success!

    Enthusiasm 5/5

    This was some truly lovely rye. Once again Amrut have outdone themselves and produced a world class rye whisky. It’s gentle and yet still very active and flavourful.

    My only issue with this is the price. It sells for around 150 EUR (at time of rviewing) and with all due respect to the quality product that this is, there are ryes that are just as good available for less than half that sum.

    Reviewed in my blog:
    • Nose
      Bubblegum. Woodspice. Cloves. Sandalwood. Lavender. Cut grass. Flowers of a specific type I’ve smelled before but think what kind. Dried citrus and spices, almost gin-like. Gingerbread.
    • Taste
      Big hit of woodspice and pomelo. Eases into Sweet citrus. Maple. Pickled ginger. Orange peel.
    • Finish
      Medium. Tingling woody spiciness at the back of the throat. Lavender. Sweet citrus. Maple.
