A unique bottling from Amrut distillery made from Indian barley and matured in Indian, then being matured in Europe for a further 3 years, Two Continents.
Nose : A classy nose: the oak is abundant, but entirely controlled. It allows those blood orange and kumquat notes that are no stranger to this distillery to flourishm, as well as a midly bourbony dry liquorice;
Taste : Such a soft landing... the barley is intense, sweet yet never overly so while the oaks again have a presence yet keep their distance, being happy to inject a busy spice kick in to the middle ground; the oils are soft, lightly sweetened and lingering;
Finish : Delicate, some over-ripe, dry banana and a light dusting of muscovado sugars;
