Continuing our occasional round-up of comments about Amrut which have appeared on line, we look back at a great recommendation from Liquor.com.
TOP PICKS: At Christmas time Liquor.com named its top five whisky gifts. We’re delighted that Amrut Single Malt Peated is one of those top five. Jamie Boudreau, of Canon in the western US city of Seattle, was the spirits guru whom Liquor.com called on for its wisdom – Cheers Jamie! Liquor’s picks
THE HIGH LIFE: A blog that’s always well worth reading is Peak Perspective by Shelley Sackier @ShelleySackier who lives on top of a small mountain on the edge of the Blue Ridge in Virginia. Alongside her witty jottings of everyday life she is something of a whisky fan. She claims: “I’ve spent the last twenty years learning just how little I know about it’s technology and production,” but she has obviously picked up something along the way as her post about Amrut shows here.
ON TOUR: There’s a report (in German) from Nordwest-Zeitung of a tasting session hosted by our brand Ambassador Ashok in early November at the Seekieker fish restaurant in Bad Zwischenahn. On his German tour, Ashok, gave guests in the northern German town exclusive previews of two of Amrut’s latest Single Cask malts – before they were released.
NORTHERN SPIRIT: The Manchester Whisky Club @MCRWhiskyClub reviewed Fusion in September as part of a six-malt World Whisky tasting. The members, who meet each month in the trendy Northern Quarter of the city, found the nose “a lovely interplay between soft peat and sugary barley notes”. Their description of the finish is poetry to our ears: “the peat now just a whisper playing across the tongue”. Read it all here.
