Amrut, Peated Single Malt (ASMP) (700ml)
Amrut Indian Single Malt Whisky
Peated Single Malt
FROM THE LAND OF THE GREAT HIMALAYAS
As India is too tropical a climate for peat to develop, this expression is made using peated Scottish barley, distilled and matured in ex-Bourbon casks at Amrut Distillery in Bangalore. Bottled at 46% abv.
COLOUR: Golden Yellow
NOSE: A fascinating peat smoke; as comfortable as an old leather armchair; a hint of citrus, too.
TASTE: An immediate sweetness akin to demerara sugar, followed by notes of highland peat. These notes build and become spicier, though the sweetness refuses to give way.
FINISH: 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 a butterscotch vanilla wraps the phenols for a comfortable and clean finale.
