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.
* Amrut has recently changed their labels, and as the original labels are being phased out, there is still a chance that you might receive a bottle different than what is pictured. But rest assured, the liquid remains the same, regardless of the label.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
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.
Long, wonderfully layered oak offering variations of a sweet dry theme; a touch silky with some cream toffee in the end.
