Tasting Notes

Nose

Intense sweet and savoury sherry-cask flavours – sticky raisins, meaty notes, marzipan and spicy nutmeg. Sat alongside are butter icing, fruit jelly, green leaves and a hint of lightly sweetened stewed rhubarb.

Palate

An initial hit of grain – freshly crushed barley and porridge oats – gives way to rich vinous notes and layers of tingling spice. Bitter char is balanced by dried fruit and bittersweet dark chocolate, all sat on top of sweet berry fruit.

Finish

Liquorice and blackcurrant jam, slowly fading to mint-infused dark chocolate.

Comment

Intense and heavy, with a significant amount of cask influence. The Amrut fruitiness is still present, but subdued by the rich overtones of sherry-cask maturation.
