A very interesting little whisky from Amrut, this is unpeated and aged in American oak bourbon barrels before a finish in port pipes, especially imported from Portugal. Lovely stuff!

He'll grant one wish per day until Christmas...
Nose: Fruity, chocolate-driven nose with syrup, toffee and a hint of coconut, pepper and allspice. Red berries too!
Palate: Fruity and intense with tropical fruits, redcurrant jelly, baked bananas and cinnamon.
Finish: Long and fruity, hints of cranberry.
A lovely sweet monster of a dram!
Just go for it.

Nose – Sweet golden syrup, quite a few winey notes here, tannins flying high. exotic fruit in liquor : banana bread.
Palate: Big fortified wine, port. a lot of coconut, spices, banana and milk chocolate. This is a luscious mouth coating beast.
Finish : Milk chocolate, cherries (think Kirsch liquor)
All in all, an excellent dram, one of the best from Amrut in a while. It’s a wham bam in your face sort of dram. Worth getting, and at that high ABV, it’s a wonderful way to pass winter.
