Mr Ashok Chokalingam, global brand ambassador for Amrut distilleries, has a very big heart for he decided to share with us three (as yet unreleased) single cask expressions at a recent tasting in Dubai. I was lucky enough to sample this particular peated Port Cask matured single malt served up at cask strength.

Nose: Wonderfully balanced peat with a dollop of meat stew. Look past the savory and the sweetness starts to come through with sugar syrup on French toast and chocolate on red grapefruit. A delightfully engaging bouquet.

Palate: The peat is brilliantly balanced on the palate and accentuates the chocolate covered figs and oranges. There is hint of dough as well – could be that nice French toast.

Finish: Long with a smear of peppery jam.

This is a super limited release so if you find it in your neck of the woods I suggest you get your hands on it immediately.
