Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Pouring the whisky into the glass, you are immediately captivated by its deep amber hue, reminiscent of traditional Indian spices. The liquid swirls with a glycerous quality, signifying the higher alcohol concentration, which also implies a richer texture and flavor profile.
The nose is a bustling bazaar of aromas, harmoniously balanced yet brimming with character. Initial waves of dried tropical fruits—mango, banana, and fig—are supplemented by the complexity of vanilla, toffee, and a faint wisp of oak. Herbal nuances, perhaps a touch of coriander, add an exotic backdrop to the aromatic symphony.
Approach this whisky with respect; it is cask strength and packs a punch. A splash of water or a piece of ice may serve well to open up its complexities. The palate is dense, lusciously coating your tongue with an intense burst of flavors. A citrusy sweetness of orange zest and tropical fruits coexists with a savory, almost meaty, undertone. The Indian spices subtly manifest as traces of black pepper and nutmeg, adding a spicy crescendo to the medley of flavors.
The finish is extraordinarily long, with a warm and enveloping sensation. Notes of caramel and a slight oak bitterness linger, accentuated by a soft smoky trace and a final flourish of spice. The layers of taste evolve in an unhurried manner, demanding time and contemplation to fully appreciate.
Amrut Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky is a paradigm of Indian whisky, rich in character, complex in flavor, and profoundly rewarding for those who dare to venture into its high-proof depths. Available at Third Base Market & Spirits, it beckons to the whisky connoisseur, promising an exotic journey that challenges preconceptions and delights the senses.
