With this version, the Indian distillery delivers a world-class whiskey, based on the mixture of peated malt from Scotland and unpeated malt from India. These malts have been mixed before fermentation, which guarantees unique flavors. Unchill filtered and bottled at 50% vol. it's an explosive single malt, with notes of dark chocolate struggling to dominate a peaty heart, as touches of fruit, pepper and oak clash. This Amrut Fusion results from the assembly of two special cuvées from the Bangalore malt distillery. The first cuvée is made from 80% malted barley grown at the foot of the Himalayas and 20% peated malted barley from Scotland. Each has been aged separately for four years under near-tropical temperatures, accelerating aging like old Caribbean rums!
Nose: Firm, fine. Honey, sandalwood and roasted malt. Candied citrus fruits, frangipane, liquorice and curry.
Palate: Powerful, lively. Malted barley, exotic fruits, green liquorice and heady flowers. Finely wooded, gingerbread.
Finish: Long and mineral. Malted barley, salted butter. Spices, bergamot and cardamom.
Produced almost exclusively from barley grown in the fertile plains at the foot of the Himalayas, and not chill-filtered, Amrut is similar to the great Scotch whiskeys of Speyside with fruity, chocolate and spicy notes typical of aging in ex- bourbon casks. With undeniable success, the distillery offers small cuvées at natural strength grading more than 60% to further highlight the finesse and unique character of this single malt.
