Amrut 6 year old Aatma Single Cask Single Malt (Cask No. 4675), 57.1%

Price: $215 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Sweet saline peat on the nose, along with red berries, milk chocolate, hazelnuts, dates, and nougat. It's lush and rich, qualities that extend to the palate's oily, dense character, which is floral and soapy before shifting into plummy red berry fruit, dark chocolate, roasted hazelnuts, and a panoply of spices. The finish is ashy, peppery, sweet, and mouthwatering, with long, lingering smokiness. Water is a must to showcase the rounded, powerfully flavorful balance of this whisky.
