Amrut Portonova [Re-Review]

And this is the end of my Mystery Advent Calendar. It ends with a bit of a hiccup. Day #24 is a re-review. My wife picked from a section of whiskies that were made up of ones I’ve already had, and were the last drops. So I ended up finishing with Amrut Portonova. I’m happy to […]

The Kincardine 7

Victor Bruce was the 13th Earl of Kincardine and 9th Earl of Elgin. He was also the Viceroy and Governor General of India between 1894 and 1899. To be frank, the great Victor Alexander Bruce’s impact upon Britain, and at the time of his life, that included India, was the Elgin Commission. His Elgin Commission […]

Amrut 8 Greedy Angels II

Whisky has had an interesting effect on culture. Let’s take religion, and the use of the term “Angel’s Share”. Before people really understood alcohol and how it evaporated, they made up an idea that the angel’s were stealing some of it.

Amrut Spectrum 004

Amrut Spectrum 004 is the second Spectrum on the market, made by those wacky Indian whisky makers out in… well, India. […]

Amrut Single Cask Virgin Oak

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample. I’ve written about Amrut quite a bit in the last while. So much so, I’m having trouble starting this one off. Everyone loves a Virgin Butt. Wait, that may come off wrong. But think of the SEO I’ll get! Alright, good plan. Like I was saying, everyone loves a virgin […]

Amrut Double Cask

Thanks again to /u/devoz for the sample. So I’m at a whisky tasting and I get offered another Amrut. And because I need to keep drinking Amruts or my ancestors will rise up and destroy Sri Lanka. Which is amazing because I’m white as shit and my ancestors never went there, but thems the breaks. Sorry […]

Amrut Rye

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample. Indian heat and whisky methods, European Rye, Amrut yeast, and a friendly competition between two obsessive Canucks. That’s what’s lead us here. An assortment of international reasons that have lead me here. Amrut Rye seems insane. A company that makes Single Malts in a very distinctive Scottish way. The last […]
