Amrut, Portonova, Single Malt Indian Whisky

$169.95 inc GST

700 ml, 62.1% abv, India

Another brilliant limited edition whisky from Amrut, this is a port version of Amrut’s Intermediate Sherry.

Portonova is matured first in a combination of new american oak and ex-bourbon barrels, then moved to refill port pipes and then back into ex-bourbon casks.

“A blackcurrant and wispy, smoky nose gives way to an intense and bittersweet mix of chili, blackcurrant, oak, damson, dark chocolate, and peat. Astounding” (Dominic Roskrow)

Description

Nose : A Thick pudding of a nose; fruit and caramel have merged into one slightly over-oaked soup; burnt apple pie.

Taste : 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.
