Jonny McCormick - Whisky Advocate "Made from Indian barley, the nose is soft, fruity, and spicy. There’s cooked apples in crème anglaise, ripe apricot, sweet barley, nectarine, fresh mango, sticky cotton candy, and dry oak spices. Creaminess continues on the palate, with apple, aromatic spices of pepper, ginger, and aniseed, with passion fruit, clementine, and zested limes. This should be your starting point for exploring Amrut’s whiskies."
Whisky Seek "Highly recommended. Totally Unique"
Paul Needham, Bourbon & Banter "....my first taste of Indian whisky and I've found myself returning to it over the years even as I've branched out and tried more premium labels. It's one of those bottles that gets better after it's opened and has a chance to oxidize a bit, and I regularly taste new notes in a bottle after it's sat for a while."
Consistently one of Indian distillery Amrut's most popular bottles showing a signature character of spice, fruit and honey. This whisky is THE original Indian single malt.
Nose - Bourbon notes with near perfect bitter-sweat balance; burnt honeycomb and toffee also abound.
Mouth - Enormous barley-oak sweetness; again there is a big Bourbony cut to the cloth with all the licorice and molassed sugar.
Finish - Long, wonderfully layered oak offering variations of a sweet dry theme; a touch silky with some cream toffee in the end.
Amrut Single Malt Whisky is the product of many years’ research and dedication. Some of Amrut is made from carefully selected Indian barley and its peatier whiskies from malted Scottish barley from malthouses in Scotland.
The history of Amrut Distilleries is as old as the history of independent India itself. After six decades of notable progress, just like India, Amrut Distilleries has grown both in stature and size and is now noted as a global economic leader. Amrut Distilleries Private Limited began in 1948 under the name and style of Amrut Laboratories, with an initial investment of barely a few lakhs.
