Amrut Distillery was established in 1948 by Shri J.N. Radhakrishna, just a few months after India declared its independence, and build in Bangalore, in the southern part of the country. The family run business produces a whisky in the purest Scottish tradition and proudly proclaims its Indian roots. In 2004, Amrut became the first distillery in history to produce the 100% Indian Single Malt.
Distilled from barley grown at the North West of India. Amrut mature their single malt in New American Oak and ex-bourbon before bottling.
|Nose||Distinctly confidant liquorice-bourbon notes with near perfect bitter-sweet balance, burnt honeycomb and toffee also abound.|
|Taste||Outstanding richness and sheen to the enormous barley-oak sweetness. Again there is a big bourbony cut to the cloth with all the liquorice and molassed sugar normally associated, but the barley adds that extra dimension.|
|Finish||Long, wonderfully layered oak offering variations of a sweet dry theme. A touch silky with some cream toffee at the death.|
