Amrut Single Malt

Amrut's flagship Indian single malt, showing their signature character of spice, fruit and honey. Bottled at 46%, it has the depth of flavour needed to properly showcase the distillery. The original Indian single malt. Aged in new American Oak Barrels and ex-Bourbon Barrels. NOSE: Distinctly confidant liquorice-bourbon notes with near perfect bitter - sweet balance; burnt honeycomb and toffee also abound. PALATE: 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 molasses 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.

Amrut Peated Single Malt

The immediate sensation is one of being caressed by molassed sugar and then a ratching up of the peat notes. As they get more forceful, so the experience becomes that little bit drier and spicier, though not without the molasses refusing to give way. You can tell the quality of the distillate and the barrels it has been matured in by the crystalline depth to the finish. Everything is clear on the palate and the butterscotch vanillas wrap the phenols for a comfortable and clean finale.

Amrut Naarangi

NOSE: No surprises here. Orange is the first note that comes out from the glass but it is not dominant or overwhelming. Other sherry aromas, especially figs, are easily recognizable. After a while, the signature Amrut spices start to show themselves. In the later stages, lemon drops and a bit of mint creating a refreshing touch.

PALATE: Thick, almost syrupy texture. Sweet orange marmalade with a healthy sprinkle of peppers and clove. Orange is more leading than the nose but still somewhat balanced with other flavours. Oak and lemon peels add some tanginess to the overall profile. FINISH: Medium to long finish. Sweetness disappearing to leave behind a spicy aftertaste.
