Tasting Notes
Appearance / Color
Golden Yellow.
 
Smell / Nose
Distinctly confident liquorice-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 liquorice 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.

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.

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.
Kelly
Kelly,
Interesting fruit on this one
