Amrut, Single Malts of India Kurinji (700ml)
Amrut Indian Single Malt Whisky
Single Malts of India
Kurinji, from the Single Malts Of India presented by Amrut, is the second release from India's first ever Independent Bottler. Kurinji is a single malt eponymously sourced from a Kurinji or Mountainous region and exhibits traits that uniquely spring from the locale. Inspired by the purple-blue Kurinji flower that blooms once every 12 years.
Sweet and floral with wafts of jasmine and honeysuckle, this dram dances across the palate.
NOSE: Floral and flowery notes with pear and melon, muscovado sugar, vanilla with an oak tone and a bit of toffee.
TASTE: Honey and sherbet transcending to peat and melon with a very floral middle ground.
FINISH: The finale is remarkable with a sweet and floral finish and a dusting of cracked pepper.
Amrut are the pioneers of Indian single malt whisky being the first to be made in India. Amrut or amrita is a Sanskrit word which can be translated as "nectar of the gods", "nectar of life", or "drink of the gods". The distillery sources its barley from the Himalayas and ages the whisky at an altitude of over 3,000 feet above sea level in Bangalore. In this climate, the angels take way more than their share as up to 15% ABV of the whisky is lost per year. The resulting spirit has netted Amrut with hundreds of awards around the globe.
"Great quality is not a choice, It is the inevitable result of the environment we create."
