Amrut Portonova

1. Amrut Portonova 62.1%

Steffen's review

I got no official recipe of this whisky at the time of writing this review, but I understand it's another sandwiched whisky similar to the Intermediate Sherry Matured

As the name suggest this involves port pipes

Nose : Wood, rhubarb and tropical fruits

Palate : Quite woody, licorise, tropical fruits, a kaleidoscope of tastes

Finish : Very long and very complex. I really enjoy it. It has the earmark of old whisky, which is a fantastic accomplishment when you know that Amrut whisky is around 5 years old give or take a few days

Rating 89

This is a very delicious and complex whisky, where the different flavours plays around and around and around. A masterpiece. The ABV is high but the whisky is very welcoming. This could appeal more to bourbon fans

Lars' review
Nose: Inviting exotic tones with a very sweet port influence. The casks really come out to shine with warm glowing vanilla. Vanilla sugar, vanilla ice cream and all the while accompanied by creamy, macadamia nuts.
Taste: Very sweet with port nuances and oak vanilla combined in a charming, young style. There is an elegance of perfumed pine wood to this stylish dram and I imagine myself sitting in the garden on a warm summer night listening to locusts in the tall grass and catching the scent of blossoming flowers in the night air. A thick and oily whisky made to enjoy.
