Amrut Indian Single Malt Whisky was rich but easy to drink, yet a bit too fruity for my taste. This might sound crazy but though it was rich with flavors, it was a bit too one-sided because of it's major sweet spots.

I did detect some spiciness but not enough to make it interesting enough for my taste. Surely people will love this one, it was balanced nicely.

But for Amrut Single Malt, I will reason that it's just like watching the movie The Beach by Danny Boyle. At times it's entertaining but occasionally a bit boring or just a bit too tricky. Overall it's decent but at the same time you just feel happy for the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio chose The Beach and let Christian Bale do American Psycho. My point being: the world needs Amrut Single Malt but I'm glad that there's lots of other alternatives to pick from. Everybody wins.

For fairness, this would go nicely at the beach and it's an OK dram to enjoy while relaxing at the poolside or at your summer cottage's terrace.

Nose: Barley mixed with nuts and citrus fruits.

Taste: Spicy and fruity. The barley gets a touch of honey and apricot. Wee spices in the mix as well.

Finish: Malty and full of sweet and green fruits. Rum nicely in the aftertaste but it's a shame it fades away quickly.

Balance: Rich and interesting but I guess it's too fruity for my taste.
