Amrut Portonova 1st Edition Indian Single Malt is an un-peated whisky. Initially matured in a combination of new American oak and ex-bourbon barrels then transferred to fresh Port Pipes imported from Portugal. Finally back to ex-bourbon cask again.
Amrut Portonova 1st Edition Tasting Notes :-
Nose : A Thick pudding of a nose; fruit and caramel have merged into one slightly over-oaked soup; burnt apple pie
Palate : This is essentially a port pipe sandwich…. and it shows. The spicy, jammy fruit is interwoven through any amount of caramel while the oaky saltiness gets the taste buds both salivating and puckering until you run dry
Finish : Long, massive oak with quite evident traces of the virgin barrels now detectable. And more of a cocoa hue as it progresses. At last some muscovado sugars arrive to supplant the berry fruits
