Review
At a recent Amrut tasting which I hosted for my good friend Mr Ashok Chokalingam we were treated to three (as yet un-released) single cask expressions that the distillery had decided to put out. Of the three one of them was PX Sherry matured spirit served at a no-nonsense 62.8% ABV.

Nose: Big and fruity with a lot of clove followed by a tumble of dark autumn fruits. Reminded me of dark currant jam on brown bread.

Palate: Intense chocolate, cinnamon with toffee dusted with dark coffee powder. A few drops of water allows the flavors to mellow out and be enjoyed for longer. Very creamy mouthfeel.

Finish: The long woody cinnamon finish makes you sit down for a while and keep taking deep breaths.

This series of single cask releases is going to go a long way!
