Amrut Peated Indian Single Malt Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 46% Age: No Age Statement Country: India Chillfiltered: Non-Chillfiltered
According to Indian Mythology, when Gods and Rakshasas – the demons – churned the oceans using the mountain Meru as a churner, a golden pot sprang out containing the Elixir of Life. That was called the “Amrut”. The great founders of the distillery aptly named it Amrut Distilleries.
Amrut Cask Peated Single Malt Whisky is a product of many years research to produce whiskies matching world standards. The whisky is made from selected Indian barley grown at the feet of the Himalayas, nurtured by the waters flowing there and cultivated by old and traditional agricultural practices. It is carefully mashed and distilled in small batches to preserve the natural aroma and matured in oak barrels in a unique tropical condition, at an altitude of 3,000 feet above sea level at Bangalore, the garden city of India. This exclusive bottling of Amrut Peated Single Malt offers the connoisseur the rare opportunity to sample this Treasure of India
To retain the natural characteristics of this oak aged Indian Malt Whisky, they do not chill filter and it comes in its natural colour.
This whisky received 94pts in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible and if you are looking to explore the world of Indian Whisky this is a great place to start your journey.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Unusually dry peat; not dissimilar to peak reek absorbed by an old leather arm chair, a hint of citrus too
Palate: Despite the nose, the immediate sensation is one of being caressed by molassed sugar and then a ratching up of the peat notes. As they get more forceful, so the experience becomes that little bit drier and spicier, though not without the molasses refusing to give way.
Finish: You can tell the quality of the distillate and the barrels it has been matured in by the crystalline depth to the finish. Everything is clear on the palate and the butterscotch vanillas wrap the phenols for a comfortable and clean finale.
Our Tasting Notes
Nose: The classic Amrut maltiness is still there and so are the vanillas with a little splash of citrus. However now there’s a dry smokiness now which resembles an old leather jacket with a bit of a smokiness to it. Very much a Scottish Speyside peat smoke we’re getting from this interesting single malt.
Palate: This is a smooth single malt whisky which is very much worth exploring, apples and pears, lots of ashy smokiness but still delicate. As the single malt moves through the mouth you get a light toffee sweetness and lots of oak and smoking embers. It is still very malty even with water there’s some peat smoke to this whisky but in no way overpowering.
Finish: Again another malty Amrut with a long finish but this one gives just a little more, with vanilla, toffee and wood smoke at the end to a very pleasant oaky finish. An exceptional single malt from Indian distillers Amrut.
