A superb dram from India.
 
The distillery's name Amrut comes from Indian mythology and the word means Nectar of life in Sanskrit. In Indian mythology the forces of good (gods) and evil (Rakshas) were fighting each other in a war with a mythical snake (Adishesha), itself tied around a golden mountain in the midst of an ocean. The fight stirred the waves and a pot containing divine liquid rose up. Anyone who drank this liquid would be given an eternal life
 
Amrut Indian Single Malt Whisky is made from selected Indian Barley grown up the feet of the Himalayas, matured by the water flowing there and cultivated by old & traditional agricultural practices. It is carefully mashed and distilled in small batches to preserve the natural aroma, matured in oak barrels in unique tropical conditions, at an altitude of 3000 feet above sea level at Bangalore, the garden city of India. This Whisky matures by losing almost half its volume to the angels.

What does Amrut Single Malt Whisky taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Amrut Single Malt Whisky and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Golden yellow.
 
Smell / Nose
Distinctly confident licorice-Bourbon notes with near perfect bitter-sweat balance; burnt honeycomb and toffee also abound.
 
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Outstanding richness and sheen against the enormous barley-oak sweetness; again there is a big Bourbony cut to the cloth with all the licorice and molassed sugar, but the barley adds that extra dimension.
 
Finish
Long, wonderfully layered oak offering variations of a sweet dry theme; a touch silky with some cream toffee in the end.
 
Comment
Truly a pleasure. It is a superb dram and one that should be sampled by every Whisky drinker. Prepare to be impressed.

Smooth. Oak.
 
Doug
Doug,
I think "barley-oak sweetness" is a great description of this one. Very smooth, balanced and drinkable. It is tasty and better than average, but not exceptional: I think it is a good value for the price and worth keeping around for its "different" character.
 
Andrej
Andrej,
Well. I like India, but this is fairly plain.

Jeremy,
One of the smoothest Single Malts I've tasted.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Decent and drinkable. Smooth with a bite at the end. Will Definitely have some more.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
This is an awesome single malt with massive oak and a good sweet/earthy mix. The caramel, vanilla, and fruity notes come out very well balanced. The spiciness is just right, not too much, and not too little.
 
Ted
Ted,
Very nice whiskey.Surprised by the degree of peatiness.Smooth with honey notes,and a long smooth finish.Very rich in body.
 
Som
Som,
For the money a very fine whisky...reminiscent of the better highland/speyside varietals with a faint touch of peat...
 
Dan
Dan,
Delicious - so strong yet smooth and the deep sherry colouring doesn't prepare you for the almost peaty flavour - and there ain't no peat in India!
 
Antti
Antti,
is a very good rich whisky with birth of oak & burnt honeycomb, a life of barley & molasses, while death is long with oak & creamy toffee.
 
Maurizio
Maurizio,
Flat. A bit sweet at the beginning and a poor finish.
 
Rick
Rick,
First Indian Whisky and very surprised. With a bit more age wouldn't hurt. I would purchase a bottle.
 
Leif
Leif,
I tried this in the flavor pack and liked it. Not enough to keep on stock in my bar, but it was nice. A bit antiseptic on the nose.

Josh,
