Amrut 10 year old Greedy Angels Peated Rum Cask-Finished Single Malt (2019 Release), 57.1%

Price: $950 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

The smoke on the nose is comfortingly thick and peaty, layered over cooked peaches in syrup, mango, and hints of ripening strawberry, becoming almost gum-like, with a back wall of oak and mild dry spices. On the palate, intense fruitiness assails the senses, with bitter plain chocolate, spices, and smoke. Be kind and add a generous dash of water, or prepare your taste buds for a pummeling from the cask-strength alcohol. (900 bottles, 150 for U.S.)
