Amrut Portonova Single Malt from India
A cult hero here at DC, this offering from Amrut is first matured in bourbon and new American oak barrels and then into Port Pipes before being returned to finish in bourbon barrels. It combines the traditional vanilla and coconut flavours with the rich fruit you'd expect from a port cask for an interesting mix
