Naarangi is an innovative release from India’s Amrut. The name is Hindi for ‘orange’ and the whisky was aged in an ex-oloroso-sherry cask, which was then seasoned with wine and orange peel for three years. A three-year-old whisky was then finished in the cask for a further three years, producing a whisky with extra orangey notes.
Nose: Citrus dominates, roasted coffee and dark chocolate, toffee, dark dried fruits.
Palate: Massive orchard fruits, cherries, citrus zing, honey and caramel.
