Amrut Single Cask #2712 Peated Port Pipe 2009, 59%
This single cask Amrut is exclusively bottled for Europe and it’s a peated one. It was distilled back in June 2009 and put to rest in a port pipe cask (#2712) until August 2013 when it was bottled at 59% ABV which gave 357 bottles. And since the port pipes are quite large, I think at least 500 litres we can call it ‘Greedy Angles’, because there was a totalt maturation loss of 43(!) %. But let’s go on to the whisky itself.
Some lovely chocolate notes with a fair peaty aroma. Fresh oranges with some cereals and vanilla. Even some desert wine.
A bit salty with some lovely smoky notes. Some fruitiness with a lovely BBQ steak.
Long and ashy with some great sweetness. Peaty.
What a superb dram this was. I just loved it without water and of coourse it will work with some water to, but don’t drown it. At the very first sip it’s hard to believe this whisky is only 4 years old. Some lovely peaty notes with some even lovelier wine influences. And it has a good price too.
