Member Ratings and Notes
Nose:  Slightly peated, some spice and sherry notes in the background.
Palate:  Sweet at first, followed by peat, leading into a peated finish.
Nicely balanced.
Certainly the most complex of the Amrut line.  Cinnamon spices and marshmellows.  Peat spices on the palate with some burnt chocolates.  Medium long to long finish.  Just makes the B+.  A worthy malt.
Good balance of sherry and light peat, rich vanilla, quite enjoyable and definitely recommended.

n: Firecracker and lemon.


p:  Young and a bit peaty without much earthiness.  Mold.


Starts out really sweet with notes of vanilla frosting, cane sugar, and butterscotch. As it breathes wisps of lemon and tropical fruits start to emerge and if you throw in a bit of water buttery caramel explodes. Being a peated malt there is a nice smokiness to the whole thing.


First taste was of smoky anise like a smoked black licorice. That was quickly followed up with a symphony of flavors that ran the gamut of sweet and savory. Flavors like black coffee, buttered & sugared wheat toast, candied malt, creamy orange, tropical fruit, all tied together with a steady peaty underpinning. Being one of the most intensely flavorful and complex whiskies I’ve had in a while it seems like I pick out something new every time I drink it.


Starts out with burly dark fruit that morphs into earthy leather before dissolving into soft green apple and coriander. A little dry, but only enough to make you want a second glass before reaching for the water.


I'll admit it... I'm a bit enamored with this whisky, it hits me just right.
