Nose: a little caramel when you pull away, quite oaky.
Palate: very dry and oaky.
Finish: Spicey and peppery. Need to try again.
Comments: How the fuck did I make those notes. Let me explain – I tried this whisky on a Friday night, I didn’t even remember going to Varnish, let alone tasting the Amrut. The next day I discovered the photos on my phone & also my tasting notes…needless to say I was a little dubious at how accurate they might be, so I went back to Varnish a couple of days later to re-taste in a slightly more sober state. I was amazed to find that my drunken notes were surprisingly accurate! Wonders never cease.
