Tasting Notes

Nose

Candied sweetness followed by a burst of mineral-rich smoke – charcoal smouldering in a stone pit. Fruit develops, with candied lime peel and zest, dried apple and a concentrated mix of tropical fruit – unripe mango, papaya and blood orange.

Palate

The smoke hits first, with sweet wood and spice – anise and liquorice root. However, it takes a back seat to layers of fruit and sweet grain – sugary fruit jellies, shortbread and a gentle citrus zest sharpness.

Finish

Sweet and citrusy, with a gentle tingle of white pepper.

Comment

Gently smoky, with peat providing a backdrop for the sweet fruit and soft spice that are Amrut’s trademark.
