Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets ambrés.
  • Nose : plein, dense. Sa minéralité à fleur de peau (mine de crayon) porte à bout de bras des fleurs capiteuses (giroflée, pivoine), de la badiane, du cuir de Russie ainsi qu’une diversité incroyable de fruits, parmi lesquels, des pommes, des pêches blanches, des mûres, des cassis, des myrtilles et même des ananas et des goyaves. Surpuissant et très typé, le nez devient, à l’aération, de plus en plus fin.
  • Palate : ferme, décidée. Elle invite, pour tempérer l’ardeur du nez, à savourer des oranges sucrées, une tarte à la vanille ou bien encore une part de flan au lait. Peu après, des fruits secs (pruneau, datte, figue) accentuent son caractère gourmand. Désormais, elle peut laisser s’exprimer pleinement des fleurs capiteuses (lys, chèvrefeuille, ardénia) et des épices (curcuma, safran, muscade).
  • Overall : longue, fraîche. La tarte à la vanille revient nous tenter. Des citrons ont remplacé les oranges et des poires juteuses se sont substituées aux pêches. Au contact du chêne, les épices ont gagné encore en élégance. La rétro olfaction met l’accent sur la maturité remarquable dont fait preuve cet Amrut et le verre vide est impressionnant de complexité fruitée, épicée et florale.
The brand

The brand

Produced almost exclusively from barley grown in the fertile plains at the foot of the Himalayas, in order to retain its natural characteristics at bottling Amrut is still not chill filtered. This whisky is similar to Speyside whiskies, fruity on the palate with hints of spice and chocolate which are typical to ageing in casks previously used for bourbon. Proud of its success, the distillery now offers small batches with a natural alcohol content of over 60% to focus greater attention on the finesse and unique character of this single malt. A Peated version, made with Scottish malted barley, has been available for some years, paying testament to its unique expertise. Find out more

The distillery

An absolute revelation, Amrut single malt is beyond any doubt the most outstanding Indian whisky. A great whisky consumer, this subcontinent is also one of the world’s major producers. However, Amrut is the only whisky with the necessary qualities for it to be marketed in Europe. Founded in 1948, a few months after India’s independence, this company based in Bangalore, in the south of India, began to produce whisky according to the Scottish model. Unique in the world of whisky, the barrel store, which contains mainly bourbon barrels, acts as an “age-accelerator”, thanks to its location about 1000 metres above sea level and the tropical climate.
