A first in the world of whisky, aged initially for three years in bourbon barrels, Amrut Spectrum was finished for a further three-and-a-half years in a unique cask. Made with staves from a combination of five different types of wood: new oak from America, France and Spain, along with ex-oloroso- and ex-Pedro-Ximenez sherry. A big and bold whisky with notes of butterscotch, rum and nuts.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting notes by Billy A
A sweet and salty combination of Marmite, salted caramel and dark fruit cake to start. Fresher and lighter notes develop and skip across the surface: sliced apple, honeysuckle and a hint of sea spray. Along with the top notes, some richer and sweeter flavours appear from the dark centre, baked apples, liquorice, banana sponge cake and touches of tropical fruit – protomango?.
Rich and sweet intiailly, with floating notes of sweet apple and pear. Darker flavours build in the mouth: traditional sherry-matured flavours of raisin, spice and cognac-esque rancio. As that sweetness fades, and darkness descends, with barrel char, burnt raisins and ashy notes balanced by rich and sticky baked apples.
Anise, apples, clove and a hint of mint, building in sweetness to a milk coffee finish.
A whisky that, as you'd expect, has a bit of everything. The classic Amrut spice is complimented by the casks and it's a testament to the skill of the cooper and the master blender that the whisky works well, with balance and complexity throughout.
More from Amrut
“Shows the class of a highly aged whisky. Rich and complex. Lots of dried fruits- Dates, raisins, figs etc. Old leather pouch holding cured leaf tobacco. Beef stock. Very meaty. Fennel and anise seed. You can go on describing this stuff. OH, my god!! What is this whisky? All characteristics on nose reappearing on palate. Unbelievably good whisky.
