Amrut Madeira / Madeira Peated for Kirsch


After my Amrut Triparva overview I picked up loads of good suggestions and maybe a renewed curiosity from whisky lovers who hadn’t tried Amrut whisky in a very long time.

I made a decision to choose up just a few additional samples, together with the Amrut Madeira End, matured in ex-bourbon casks and given fairly a prolonged end in Madeira casks sourced from cooperages in Portugal and Spain.

Not too long ago one other pattern ended up on my desk of an Amrut 2015 single cask bottled completely for Kirsch Import in Germany. This too was a an ex-Madeira cask however a peated spirit. A sister cask #4710 was launch in Taiwan not so way back.

 

Amrut Madeira End (50%, OB +/- 2018, 4800 btl.)

Nostril: good begin on almonds and brown sugar, blended with spiced honey and candied ginger. Orange peels, peaches, gentle hints of mango. There’s a barely sharp winey edge however aside from that, that is moderately balanced. Some vanilla and mint too.

Mouth: fairly candy and oily. Mango syrup, orange sweet, juicy mirabelles and cooked apples. Barely tropical however the fruits shortly make place for drier components. Ginger cake, resulting in roasted / nutty flavours, earthy spice (a bit of nutmeg and liquorice) in addition to tobacco leaves. Walnuts. Nonetheless some honeyed sweetness within the background.

End: lengthy, candy and spicy, with loads of nutty dryness.

As a primary Madeira experiment this works out very well, though I ought to add that the everyday (usually tropical) fruits are pushed apart and the oak spice is taking heart stage. Nonetheless obtainable from The Whisky Trade as an illustration, though it appears rather a lot cheaper on mainland Europe.

 

Amrut 6 yo 2015 Ex-Madeira Peated (60%, OB for Kirsch Import 2021, cask #4711, 200 btl.)

Amrut ex-Madeira Peated - Kirsch ImportNostril: a barely musty begin, like worn leather-based and outdated casks in a cellar. Some charcoal and barbecue ashes within the background. Additionally meaty notes, like smoked ham or a simmering beef stew. Dried mushrooms. Then it turns into barely extra basic, with loads of nuts, cinnamon and darkish chocolate. Not fully freed from sulphur both.

Mouth: actually punchy. Loads of peat smoke, with medicinal notes, dried herbs and tobacco. It turns into more and more sizzling, beginning with black peppercorns and ending with chilli and curry spices. Hints of burnt rubber. We discover hints of chocolate and prunes however none of those unique fruits which are so typical for Amrut.

End: lengthy, with deep smoke, drying leather-based and hints of bitter herbs. Nonetheless too peppery.

The jury continues to be out. It tries to point out a pressure-cooked smoky character (Islay type), however it pushes apart the innate fruity character of the spirit and likewise the Madeira sweetness to a sure extent. Imagine it or not, I feel the final Madeira End is extra balanced. Accessible in Germany for round € 160. Rating: 83/100
