Amrut Greedy Angels. Photo courtesy Amrut.The name refers to Amrut’s traditionally high “angel’s share” of 11-12% annually because of the hot, humid climate of Bangalore, and this is also the oldest Amrut ever bottled at 8 1/2 years old. As a result, only 144 bottles came out of the cask for this release. The nose is smooth with a caramel cola note, mild spices, and hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon. The taste is thick and spicy with intense cinnamon and curry powder spices that stick to the tongue, hints of fresh orange, honey, and coconut that add balance. The finish is long and spicy with notes consistent with the taste. Very nice. (November, 2012)
