Amrut Portonova Single Malt 62.1%
This Amrut has interestingly spent the first part of its life maturing in new American oak and ex-bourbon barrels, before moving it to refill port pipes and then back into ex-bourbon. 'Essentially a port pipe sandwich' is how they describe it.The result is a rich and fruity dram with notes of jammy fruits, cocoa and oaky caramel.
Kavalan 'Solist' Bourbon Cask 59.4%
This single cask bottling from Kavalan has been matured in a single ex Bourbon barrel which has helped it devlope a fruity aroma with notes of coconut, vanilla and spices which continues onto the palate with a warming, sweet, vanilla oak character.
