Amrut 7 year old Single Grain Single Cask (No. 1431), 57.1%

Price: $100 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Clean and sweet on the nose, with confectionary aromas of vanilla, coconut, lemon curd, shortbread, and almond halva; there's also concentrated orchard fruit, milk chocolate, and jasmine. It's dry and chewy on the palate, with plenty to enjoy—spiced plums, raspberries, incense, milk chocolate—though the complexity flattens out into the finish, which is sweet with vanilla custard, milk chocolate, fresh raspberries, and lingering floral notes.
