Dram Full Exclusive Bottling, Amrut, Rye Cask 2993 (700ml)
Exclusive Dram Full Bottling:
Amrut Single Cask, Ex-Rye BarrelCask Number 2993, 6YO
Brought to the discerning drinkers of Dram Full by founder Nate DeTienne from the far flung lands of India - this Amrut Single Cask is an absolute belter!
On the nose you might find this dram reminiscent of a spicy rye, along with cooked cinnamon and sweet tropical fruits.
After a sip, light dry malt characteristics reveal themselves along with more rye spice as well as oat biscuits and ginger snaps. Lychee dipped in icing sugar lingers on the sides.
The finish is an interesting bouquet of rose and clove or a light potpourri.
All together a complex and nuanced dram which rewards careful examination.
At 60% it can handle water just fine.
Amrut Distillery were the first to produce single malt whisky in India, with their first single malt coming onto the market in 2004 at a blind tasting in Glasgow. They've since won countless awards for their innovative spirits all around the globe.
The team at Amrut credits their unique style and flavour to the intense Indian climate which accelerates the rate of maturation of their spirit immensely. With an angels share sitting between 10-12% per year it's just as well!
