Amrut Fusion Indian Single Malt Whisky

$124.00

Nose: Heavy, thickly oaked and complex: some curious barley-sugar notes here shrouded in soft smoke. Big, but seductively gentle, too;

Taste: The delivery, though controlled at first, is massive! Then more like con-fusion as that smoke on the nose turns into warming, full blown peat, but it far from gets its own way as a vague sherry trifle note (curious, seeing how there are no sherry butts involved) – the custard presumably is oaky vanilla – hammers home that barley – fruitiness to make for a bit of a free-for-all; but for extra food measure the flavours develop into a really intense chocolate fudge middle which absolute resonates through the palate;

Finish: A slight struggle here as the mouthfeel gets a bit puffy here with the dry peat and oak; enough sweetness to see the malt through to a satisfying end, though. Above all the spices, rather than lying down and accepting their fate, rise up and usher this extraordinary whisky to its exit.

Distillery Profile:
An absolute revelation, Amrut single malt is beyond any doubt the most outstanding Indian whisky. A big whisky-consuming country, this subcontinent is also one of the world’s major producers. However, Amrut is the only whisky with the qualities required to be sold in Europe. Founded in 1948, a few months after India’s independence, this company based in Bangalore in southern India began to produce whisky according to the Scottish model. Unique in the world of single malts, the warehouse which contains mainly bourbon barrels acts as an “age-accelerator” thanks to its location (approx. 1,000 metres above sea level) and the tropical climate.
