Balance, complexity, and surprising maturity for its age -- these are the defining characteristics of the best Indian whisky I have ever tasted. Amrut is doing some great things, and this whisky just elevated them to a new level. Combining Indian malt and Scottish peated malt, this whisky shows a sweet side, but is never cloying, with rich caramel, vanilla custard, and fruit cocktail in light syrup, balanced by vibrant -- almost floral -- dried peat smoke, delicate white pepper, and a hint of tropical fruit (toasted coconut, pineapple). Soothing, lingering smoke finish. I look forward to more great whiskies from Amrut. (Vol. 19, #1)
This Indian single malt is so named because it's made with 'a fusion of Indian and Scottish barley.' The aroma is deliciously fresh, suggesting crisp apple slices. It's silky on the palate, showing plenty of caramel followed by a billow of peat smoke. It finishes dry, with an intriguing mix of cigar tobacco, leather, Baker's chocolate, bitter orange peel and spice. At 100 proof, it's predictably hot; be prepared to dilute it to taste. (KN)
