Indian Whisky

Amrut - Portonova

5

750 ml
  • Amrut is probably the best known Indian whisky brand outside India, and certainly among the most highly regarded. The brand has been around since 1948 but it’s only in the last 20 years or so that they’ve been making “serious” single malt expressions, and it wasn’t until 2009 that they made their way Stateside. Since then, Amrut has gained a reputation as arguably the essential introduction to Indian whisky.


    Amrut Portonova is an unpeated single malt whisky matured initially in a combination of new American oak and ex-bourbon barrels, then transferred to once used port pipes, imported from Portugal and finally back to ex-bourbon casks.


    It is aptly named Portonova as there is a town called Parangipettai (Portonovo) on the east coast of India, in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, a territory that was under Portuguese control from the 16th to the 18th century.


    This single malt is exotic and vibrant on both nose and the palate and it delivers plentiful of raisins, vanilla, cherry liqueur and spices. The effect is the extraordinary smoothness on the finish.

  • Whizzky Rating

    3.6

  • ABV

    62.10%

  • 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
