Until a few years ago, many people had never even heard of this Indian whisky, but now everybody seems to have the name Amrut on their lips. Not totally underserved, mind you. This is one helluva whisky. High time for me to try a couple of their bottlings. Let's start off with the 'regular' peated single malt.
The nose is quite Scottish with mild peat, vanilla and chalk. A trifle flowery and a tad spiced. If you leave it for a few minutes, it becomes a bit waxy as well. Very creamy, in fact.
The peat manifests itself nicely on the palate and serves as a wrapper for the green apples and exotic fruits. This is good stuff.
The finish is wonderfully long, although it offers nothing new. Peated fruit.
It may still come as a surprise to many, but Amrut has in fact won quite a few international awards. When tasting this whisky, the first words that came to mind were 'no surprise there'.
