# 516 • Amrut Single Cask • Sherry Cask SAQ

62.8% alc./vol.
Amrut Distillery, Bangalore, India

Amrut! The distillery of the faithful!

La SAQ managed against all odds to get his hands on a single cask from the famous Indian distillery. Sherry cask # 3516, August 2010-July 2014, only 90 bottles, SAQ exclusive, sold out since then, bouuuuuu ...

As the poor said so well Hans moleman (1961-) said so well:

I said Boo-Urns ...

Orange amber more intense but barely than bourbon cask.

Nose:
Sherry cask, dates, oak, tobacco leaf, juicy tannins, spices, cocoa even bearing on the Lindt chocolate truffle. With a winey side that would pair well with certain cheeses, it is a bottling that matches well with Scottish sherry casses.

Taste:
Caramel and vanilla, dates, prunes, tobacco and sherry thoroughly, before being overtaken by the spices of its alcohol content, which all in all does not seem that aggressive.

Finish:
Oak plank bursting with sherry and tangy shiraz. Strong and spicy notes leaving us in a beautiful heat.

Balance:
Excellent example of Sherry Cask Strength. At times the Scots are right to have the bitch.

#452 • W. First Special Reserve

40% alc./vol.
W.Premiers, Barcelona, ​​Spain

We visit here a little drunk a little fucked. We know that it comes from Spain, it says a Blended Whiskey Exceptionally, but rumor has it that it would be a mixture of 70% of questionable blended scotch and 30% of Canadian whiskey probably equally doubtful.

Too much to be in the dubious, the only information that I could glean on the web about this bottling come from Czech or Hungarian shady websites, which require the use of Google to see that their price per bottle of 208 Czech crowns equals 12 Canadian dollars.

Thanks to Pat who found out I do not know which travel store this sample is.

As the American director, photographer, screenwriter and producer put it so well Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999) said so well:

Sometimes we think we're running a shit and it's a masterpiece. Sometimes we think we're running a shit, and it's a shit.

Amber malt very general.

Nose:
Alcohol wave in front of a blast of latte coffee and white chocolate. Still good. A little vanilla and caramel, nothing to shit on the floor.

Taste:
Very tasteless and one-dimensional texture. Walnut, vanilla and caramel. Chocolate-hazelnut. Curiously reminds me of the kinds of marbled imitations of European Nutella.

Finish:
Quite short, little spice, little cereal, much too much sugar.

Balance:
I do not really know how they came up with this unusual result, but it almost looks like it's not really a whiskey, much like the After Dark Indian.
