AMRUT 8 YO Ex-Rye Single Cask The Little Big Book 60%


In addition to its single malt, Amrut also produces a whisky made entirely from European malted rye. Aged 5 years old, it was launched on the European market by La Maison du Whisky in 2017. Matured in a cask previously containing one of the first single malt rye whiskies produced by the Bangalore distillery, this bottling immediately transports us to the heart of Kentucky. On an aromatic front, notes of malted barley and rye literally rise from the glass, rivalling each other in intensity. Buttressed on superb cereal notes, from start to finish it reveals incredible balance and softness, despite the particularly high alcohol content.
refined, powerful. On the first nose, malted barley and rye monopolize the aromatic palette. Notes of warm biscuit and candied lemon. Allowed to breathe, it becomes mentholated, vanilla and spicy (clove, pink peppercorn). The clean attack is exotic (passion fruit) and liquorice. The mid-palate wavers between heady florals (carnation), cocoa powder and pear. The energetic finish takes on oriental tones (turkish delight, chai latte).

Appearance : burnished gold with glints of topaz.

Nose : both refined and powerful. The first nose unmistakably reveals malted barley but also rye with tones of warm biscuit and candied citrus fruit (lemon). Allowed to breathe, it becomes mentholated and vanilla. Next, spices take the reins, with pink peppercorn, star anise, clove, cinnamon and green liquorice. Chilli and heady florals (gardenia) are also abundant, before notes of roasted apples bring lots of creaminess to the aromatic palette.

Palate : clear, resolute. The attack is characterized by citrus fruit (lime, grapefruit), malted barley and exotic fruit (passion fruit, pineapple). It also gives the delightful sensation of chewing on a liquorice stick. On the mid-palate, brioche notes appear alongside fresh fruit (pear, Mirabelle plum, white peach). Gradually it becomes increasingly powdery (cocoa, coconut). The very slender and energetic end of the palate is floral (pansy, gillyflower), spicy (cinnamon, ginger) and herbaceous (green malt, lucerne).

Overall : long, dynamic. For its part centred on cereal and sweet pastries, the finish confidently evokes a lemon-meringue tart. Next, notes of rose petal and turkish delight lead a development into more oriental tones. Gradually, the taste buds are refreshed with the sweet liqueur of a chai tea latte. On the retro-nasal olfaction, rye, fruit and curry prolong the tasting indefinitely. The empty glass shows lots of youth and a remarkable expression of freshness.
