Amrut Greedy Angels Chairman's Reserve 12 Year

Single Malt — India

5.0 out of 5 stars
I first off want to start by writing a huge "thank you" to Distiller---I requested this be added...and lo and behold, it's on here. Mikael and team---thanks. Okay---so, now to the review----this one is for the Greedy Angels 10 yr old, not 12...and for the 71% ABV small sample. Personally...I loved this. One of my top drams. It's a mix of Irish fruity waxiness that's present in a well aged 25 yr old Cooley combined with the elegance of a 30 yr old Highlander or Speysider. You get a waft of topical fruits---papayas, gauvas, and coconut right at the onset. This carries through palette, with a long finish. This is the first Amrut I didn't get cardamon...which is too bad, I love cardamon. It's only 10 years old, but the Bangalore climate at 100 degrees F all year ages this as if it's a 30 yr old. Not to mention the rarity----that climate doesn't allow many whiskies to survive into double digits; the angel's share is simply too much, which makes it rare as hen's teeth.

    Sounds damn good. Have a sample of the Intermediate sherry matured coming my way shortly which I'm looking forward to trying
