Reviews and Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Golden yellow
 
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.
 
Finish
Long, wonderfully layered oak offering variations of a sweet dry theme; a touch silky with some cream toffee in the end.

$57.99

Top reviews for Amrut Single Malt Whisky:

— I loved this. Spicy, smoky, yet delicately sweet caramel and vanilla notes.

— This truly the most amazing tasting single malt whisky I’ve tasted in a while. Could be put in the same category as the Glenfiddich 15s and others originating out of Speyside

— The nose is bold with burnt honey and oak with a hint of sweetness. Mouth-watering at first, then a good balance of sweet and spicy at the same time. Quickly turning to rich and sticky on the tongue. Nice long Finish...Starting with some smoke and ends with bitter spice but then swoops in with sweetness from under the tongue at the last second. Reminded me a little of Glenmorangie 14 Quinta Ruban but better. I will definitely be trying more!

Roy,
Cragganmoe 12 with a bit more spice
 
Louise
Louise,
Very drinkable. Spicy.
 
Juan
Juan,
Smooth and nice drink with sweet taste. I will have it again.
 
John
John,
Only a hint of smoke in the nose, but dominates the taste. Not a fan of the smoke, but this isn’t bad even with that.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Bloody good effort - I'm ashamed to say that I did not have high expectations, but it was pleasantly surprised.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
rich and smooth.
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Love the smoke
 
Leigh
Leigh,
Very good. Smoky aroma and taste upfront that opens up to fruit and sweet caramel. But not to sweet. Then the oak in the aftertaste. I really liked this one. Good balance and separation of flavors.
 
Bob
Bob,
Carmel but not a lot after that.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
The oak and the dark chocolate notes are there, but too much spice for me.

Money. Super smoky, fruity, and tobacco-like.
 
Paul

Smokey and oakey.
 
James
James,
Licorice base but too burnt

Christopher,
If you like a 15-18 yo double casked Macallan- you should give this a try

Matthew
Matthew,
On the nose I get am immediate hit of malt, followed by dried fruit - mostly raisin, but maybe also prune. It's pungent enough the impression is like a hot grain cereal with the fruit stirred in. The palate largely follows suit, adding the barest hint of smoke and salt. Body is pleasantly oily, with a fairly long and pleasant malty sweet finish. I actually thought I didn't like this that much on my first pour, but I think the rest of the vial won me over.
 
SCOTT
SCOTT,
Caramel and spice. Really good.
 
Chris
Chris,
Not to our preference. Strong beginning and bitter finish. We may need to work up to this one.
 
jonathan
jonathan,
lots of bite on the front. similar to scotch. but then there's a lingering finish that i cant put my finger on.
 
Ira
Ira,
Very pleasant. Not a heavy mouth feel. Taste of ginger, raisins.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
A little bit of a bite. Takes some getting used to.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Caramel and a big oak flavor layered with spice, fruit and a light smoke. Tasty, but not awfully interesting. Comparable to a Speyside with a touch of smoke added.

Pleasantly surprised. Very Oaky but sweet. complex and good. Mouth-watering and spicy at the same time
 
DYLAN
DYLAN,
First Indian whisky. Overall, quite tastey. Bold, yet sweet. Enjoyable.
 
Susanna
Susanna,
This was my first try of Indian single Malt. I truly liked the experience.
 
Lee
Lee,
Different than what I normally drink, kinda taste like what I imagine freah cut grass would taste like.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Interesting. Nicely oaked and touch of sweet is reminiscent of a speyside, but it adds a licorice floral note (cardamom?) on the nose and finish that is odd. It’s not off putting but it’s not wonderful. Again, interesting.
 
Walter
Walter,
This was absolutely horrible.
 
guest
guest,
Smooth. Oak.
 
Anna
Anna,
LOVELY mix of black pepper, cardamom, and ripe fruit flavours with just the right amount of burn.
 
Michelle
Michelle,
Definitely one of my favorites. Love the sweet aroma. Bit of a burn but still nice.
 
Romain
Romain,
Really great, always a pleasure to drink when I'm not looking for something too peated. Highly recommanded.
 
Michael
Michael,
My first sample of Indian whisky was enjoyable. There's a lot of oak in this bottle. I've sipped better single malts, but I had far worse also. Now I'm interested.
 
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
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
Josh,
Interesting fruit on this one
