Portonova Single Malt Whisky 750ml
Unpeated and aged in American oak bourbon barrels before a finish in port pipes, especially imported from Portugal. More woody experimentation from the folks at Amrut, maturing the Portonova first in a combination of new american oak and ex-bourbon barrels, then moving it to refill port pipes and then back into ex-bourbon casks. It combines the traditional vanilla and coconut flavours with the rich fruit you'd expect from a port cask for an interesting mix. Amrut Distilleries Ltd is an Indian company that produces distilled beverages. It is best known for its eponymous Amrut brand of single malt whisky, which is the first single malt whisky to be made in India.

About the brand
The history of Amrut Distilleries is as old as the history of independent India itself. After six decades of notable progress, just like India, Amrut Distilleries has grown both in stature and size and is now noted as a global economic leader. Amrut Distilleries Private Limited began in 1948 under the name and style of Amrut Laboratories, with an initial investment of barely a few lakhs. The founder was the late Shri J.N. Radhakrishna, J.N.R as he is fondly called to this day. Under the leadership of the founder, Amrut Distilleries made rapid strides to entrench itself as a significant and preferred supplier of Indian Made Liquor (IML) in the Defence Market. In its state of origin, Karnataka, too, Amrut Distilleries grew to be one of the dominant suppliers, especially in the old Mysore area.After the untimely demise of J.N. Radhakrishna Rao Jagdale in 1976, the mantle devolved on his son, Shri Neelakanta Rao, the present Chairman and Managing Director. Building on the solid foundations laid by his late father, he has seen Amrut Distilleries blossom into a multi-national brand respected as much for the superlative quality of its products as his campaign for transparent practices by the IML industry. 1960s Amrut Distilleries ventures into the Rectification and Distillation of Rum. 1970s In the 70s, an evolving market of India saw Amrut foray into a new side of things - the distillation of Brandy 1980s In the 80s buoyed by the will to offer Indian consumers quality products, Amrut ventured into the distillation of Malts with an aim to produce class leading whiskies. 2002 Much of this fascinating story was made possible by the resolve of successive generations of the Jagdale family, Mr. Rakshith Jagdale, who embraced value to discount form for substance.

This thing is unadulterated gas - you need water and a bandaid with this one. The nose is cognac; port escapes me. The sense of taste is certainly whiskey impacted - flavors and delicately burned oak. Finish is to some degree on the severe side. I'm a sucker for high ABVs so I like it.

I had the favorable luck to go to an Amrut tasting occasion today around evening time with one of the brand ministers at the Seven Thousand bourbon bar in downtown Austin. I got the opportunity to attempt five distinct articulations from Amrut through the span of the night in addition to some great punch made with their peated single malt. Amazing what a whisky! I haven't had too many port completions as they're damn costly as a rule and I'm not the greatest enthusiast of wine completes yet this one nearly helped me to remember a sweet red wine blended in with whiskey. The nose was simply extraordinary. I wish my entire house possessed an aroma like this one. That being stated the brand rep said there were 60 jugs allotted to the entirety of Texas which likely methods a significant expense tag. I was most happy I got the opportunity to attempt this one however and it positions #2 out of 5 for my tastings today around evening time.

Master tip - let this one pass on a piece. Nose - Dim soggy dunnage stockroom. Port funnels are perched on vigorously malt drenched wood. Dusty oak. Some pleasant zest notes. Taste - The 62+% coats the mouth sweat malt port funnel old wood dries flavors. This is totally interesting in how the wood zest and drying notes blend in with enormous abv and liquor. The oak notes are totally extraordinary while the pleasantness gives us figs dates raisins and vanilla pleasantness. Extremely one of a kind and scrumptious whisky. I've purchased a subsequent jug. First container I purchased was $128 however the more up to date bottle was $86. 3.25 - if this is your wheelhouse it's one to search out. If not you may in any case appreciate a pour yet not one to pursue.
