Sipping Eastward

Tired of hearing another Scottish whisky? Then it’s time to go east! If you haven’t heard, Japanese and Taiwanese whiskies have been making malt tsunamis for some time. Opening a bottle is opening the doors to a whole new world of distinctive readjusted flavours. Buckle up! We’re sipping eastward.

Lessons In The Dram

Single Malt whiskies, although everywhere, were never sold for consumption until the 1960s. They were sent to other distilleries to make blended
whisky. It was Glenfiddich that broke away from that practice and allegedly sold the first Single Malt to consumers. A daring move at the time, but worth every drop as the Single Malt rapidly gained popularity worldwide. It was also the first Single Malt to make its way into airport retail shops.

Description

Amrut puts India on the map. It's a Single Malt that can compete with some of the world’s best. It won two gold medals too. When it comes to Single Malt, Amrut is the real deal. It’s even lightly peated with 25% of that Indian barley sent to Scotland for peating. The remaining 75% stays unpeated and dried in India. No brownie points for guessing where the “Fusion” came from.

As for age, it’s “four and half years old”, aged in new oak and ex-bourbon casks. In truth, it has the quality of a 12 to 15 years old scotch. No joke. Studies proved that whisky matures three to four times much faster in warmer climates. If we do the math, the Amrut could be 16 years and older. It’s not all age and no substance either. Many Scotch lovers would kill to get their hands on that 50% ABV. Great job, India!

Tasting Notes

Sight
Antique gold

Nose
Remarkably rich with an abundance of citrus fruits and spices (obviously), and a big serving of creamy sweetness from the barley. There's a slight peatiness – the perfect final touch.

Palate
Fruity with an added depth of rich oak, coffee, and dark chocolate. Soft peat snakes in between the flavours.

Finish
Long spicy finish with some marmalade sweetness.
