Amrut Standard Single Malt Whisky
94.5 POINTS - 2014 - Jim Murray Whisky Bible
93.5 POINTS - 2012 - Jim Murray Whisky Bible
NOSE: Distinctly confidant liquorice-bourbon notes with near perfect bitter-sweet balance; burnt honeycomb and toffee also abound.
PALATE: Outstanding richness and sheen to the enormous barley-oak sweetness; again there is a big bourbony cut to the cloth with all the liquorice and molassed sugar normally associated; but the barley adds that extra dimension.
FINISH: Long, wonderfully layered oak offering variations of a sweet dry theme; a touch silky with some cream toffee at the death.
