This intriguing Amrut was specially bottled for La Maison du Whisky Singapore’s 15th anniversary; hand selected by the LMDW SG Team, it was pitted against multiple marvelous cask samples at their storefront @ Robertson Quay. This Ex-Bourbon cask knocked it out of the park with its profound complexity and balance of fruitiness with a play of slight peat. Incredible on the nose, its palate was far more aromatic than expected.
Elegant and complex. On the initial nose, a subtle hint of wood smoke accompanied by aromas of fresh fruit (passionfruit, apricot, mangos), honey and vanilla. When allowed to air, notes of leather, menthol and ashes emerge. Spectacular.
Robust and bold. On the palate, strong attacks of ripe stone fruits (mangos, peaches) with a balanced amount of oak. The faint smokiness enhances the overall complexity and depth, allowing creamy vanilla hints to linger on the palate. Fresh and fruity!
Long, extremely well balanced. Fruity, oaky (stave oak), musky, earthy, peaty yet clean. Floral (lavender, lilac), oily and definitely leaving an impression as huge as its flavors.
