AMRUT 6 YO Ex-Rum

Indian Single Malt – 60%, 70cl
Single Cask #3872 – Ex Rum Cask
Limited Edition of 132 bottles
LMDW Exclusive

Amrut released its first single malt for the Scottish market in 2004. 25 years later, the move has been proven an undeniable success and the brand is now sold in 44 countries worldwide. It is also rather noteworthy that, in order to maintain the distillery’s 450 staff in employment, the owners have refused any form of automation. This particularly stunning version has perfectly assimilated all of the flavours and aromas of its rum-cask ageing. Constantly seeking authenticity, it wonderfully showcases the qualities of a palette of flavours and aromas that never loses sight of its very essence, malted barley.

Colour: topaz with amber hues.

Description

both refined and rich. The extremely well-balanced first nose is characterized by notes of ripe fruit (pineapple, plum), heady florals (iris, hyacinth), honey, cinnamon and dried fruit. Allowed to breathe, it becomes praline and almost chocolatey. The rum’s influence is tangible (cane sugar). The exotic dimension has become more pronounced (mango, persimmon). In the background, malted barley, citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit) and a hint of clove complete this complex and dense aromatic picture.

clean, full of energy. The very expressive attack sees spice bread, sugar candy and sugar cane leave a lasting impression on the palette of flavours. At once spicy (black pepper, ginger), floral (lavender) and honeyed (heather, pine tree), the mid-palate is extremely subtle. Next, with lots of zest, the end of the palate invites us to enjoy dark chocolate, dates and very ripe banana.

long, generous. The finish is very natural and, continuing on perfectly from the palate, sees successive layers of liquorice, walnut, candied fruit (apricot, pineapple), star anise and mango coulis poured across the palate. Next, notes of precious wood mixed with barley grain bring lots of nobility and finesse to the very end of the palate. The retro-nasal olfaction is malty and fruity (guava). The empty glass is then camphoric, herbaceous (dead leaves), spicy (saffron) and floral (iris butter).
