Amrut Portonova Single Malt Whisky
Amrut Portonova is an unpeated single malt whisky matured initially in a combination of new American oak and ex-bourbon barrels, then transferred to once used port pipes, imported from Portugal and finally back to ex-bourbon casks.
It is aptly named Portonova as there is a town called Parangipettai (Portonovo) on the east coast of India, in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, a territory that was under Portuguese control from the 16th to the 18th century.
This single malt is exotic and vibrant on both nose and the palate and it delivers plentiful of raisins, vanilla, cherry liqueur and spices. The effect is the extraordinary smoothness on the finish.
