Amrut Single Cask Oloroso Cask (No. 3820), 60%

Price: $120 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A whisky to settle down with for the night, with its lavish nose of chocolate, cappuccino, cocoa powder, dried cherry, and toasted spices. Rich and fruity, with initial chocolate and cocoa flavors, the high alcohol is mouth drawing and purses the lips. At cask strength, there are flavors of apple, a spike of clove and pepper, and a finish of plain dark chocolate, but dilute to accentuate the fruity elements. (480 bottles for Whiskey Neat, TX)
