  1. PhilJonhson scored this whisky 88 points Member Junior

    The first Indian whisky I was able to taste, I originally expected to come across a reduced gut twist with water from the Ganges and I added it to my other purchases because I thought it was funny and that you have to live dangerously. However, he became the star of the evening. This thing was surprisingly good, perfectly balanced, good taste of malt and 50% which gives the necessary power to a whisky, but above all a rare profile for a whisky that half peated Malt makes it very interesting and also allows to serve as a point of reference. departure for someone who has trouble with peated whisky. One of the few bottles I would buy again and always have in my collection.

    I was able to taste the Amrut with friends last night and was quite impressed overall. I actually had it twice in the glass and found it quite remarkable. My comments are due to memory.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A very fruity dram with very well integrated alcohol. The 50% vol. are hardly noticeable in the nose. There was a lot of caramel, vanilla and pickled fruit. I was inevitably reminded of a rum pot and how seductive it had always smelled as a child.
    • Taste
      85 85
      It was a bit too strong for me undiluted, so I added a little water. Then there were marshmallows, caramel, some mocha, licorice, white currants, and ripe apricots. Overall a fruity-sweet experience with a hint of smoke. The bottling is surprisingly delicious!
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium to long, with a slight mint at the beginning, then going on to sweetness quite quickly. Beautiful fruits, glucose and a tiny bit of smoke.

  3. jake1er scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Had the chance to try this in a blind tasting and it held up against some much more impressive drams. Guessed it was a Benromach.

    Dirty and fruity nose, blackberry, raspberry, raisins, vanilla, caramel, tobacco, faint smoke. Soft red fruit, molasses, cinnamon, a peppery bite right as the finish kicks in. Long finish, some cocoa bitterness, cigar ash, earthy and some more faint smoke.

  4. Larry411 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Tobacco, peanut oil, malt, leather, engine oil, heather, yellow apples, oranges and their pulp, and buttered toast. This is a solid whisky at a great price.

  5. ZLako scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    N: honey, vanilla, woody notes, grass, floral notes, very fresh & as an addition some sweet very pleasant peat

    P: lemon peels, ginger, pepper, sweet peat, honey

    F: ash, dry, citrus and some wood notes

  6. HKWhiskyExplorer scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Quite an interesting one. However, the flavours weren't pronounced enough and the finish was towards the drier side.

    This was made from a mix of Indian barley and Scotland peated malt.

    In my pre-historical scoring method, it's an 8.8/10.
    • Nose
      Boiled sweet. Oak. Aromatic vanilla.
    • Taste
      Peated malt. Oak. Fruit. Caramel.
    • Finish
      Short, dry finish. Spicy. Again, peated malt and oak.

  11. Don Cassi scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The nose starts sweet and sour and relatively malty with only light fruit (apricot) and floral aromas in the background. The increased alcohol content is noticeable but not disturbing.

    The alcohol initially tingles in the mouth, then it releases sweet and sour fruit notes (again apricot), which spread further in the finish. There is also some tart oak and a small smoke plume (more in the direction of warm smoke). Finally, there is a slight association with dark beer.
    Length: 6/10

    Overall a relatively classic malt that I would have blindly placed in the Scottish Highlands. The increased alcohol content and light smoke set it apart somewhat from the competition in the price range.

  16. Eilean a' Cheo scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Tasted blind and I was positevely surprised.. the nose suggested well aged highland malt in 2nd or 3rd filled bourbon barrels .. whereas in the mouth I started quessing a 12-15 year old nearly cask strength campletown whisky with a portion of ,not at all flawed, sherry casks in the mix..
    • Nose
      90 90
      Cereals and honeys, plus some resinous elements that I adore and when present always push my scores a bit higher. Some unripe tropical fruits and tinned apricots also shine through as well as something pleasantly dusty
    • Taste
      89 89
      Much more powerfull and a bit younger than the nose suggested, high strength, with spicies mainly on ginger, mineral and salty, with clear wood smoke. Very full bodied, nicely waxy and well structured with fruity notes and squished lemons.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long, bittersweet but balanced with a nice taste of black olives lingering

  21. keizerjos scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Like most exotic species, this is a NAS (in the tropics the whisky wants to ripen a little faster - and evaporate). This is an excellent whisky aged simply in new oak barrels. Initially, I smell a vague broth - but luckily that gets even less later. After a year that is all outdated bullshit and it turns out that the soup taste was only immediately behind the cork. Nothing is as frustrating as whisky that tastes good but smells bad - and this is not the case. After an initially complicated start, the palette is going wild. Fruity-spicy, red fruit - cherries! with a dry aftertaste, but not nasty. Excellent. Go buy it - for 40 euros a wonderful successor to the Amrut Single Malt in my cupboard.
    Tasting 2: Intriguing spicy soft sweet aromas with evident oriental edge, I call it in the absence of better 5-spice powder (at least star anise). Golden yellow color, beautifully varied in taste, surprising and certainly different from Scotch SM. I am happy again, I tasted it for the first time at the DSMW BYOB in October 2017 at Stavleu. Winner, this one; WB is a bit more realistic with 84.3 points earned by people. Bottlekill with bare knees on a hair after a year after purchase.

  22. mjts93 scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    Interesting nose with a wonderful singular earthiness/barley note which I've never encountered elsewhere, pointing to an interesting distillate (Good signs for future aged bottlings of Amrut) but not yet mature enough, dropping in taste and then further finish, being overly aggressive and short

  23. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Varied and colorful spices with peat in a fairly maritime profile. The balance is interesting. Iodine and white fruits, plums, grapes, vanilla. Very light minerality, dry rock that burns in the sun. Quite fruity on the palate, on exotic fruits and breadfruit. Juicy mango, candied pineapple, a little overripe maracuja. Chocolate truffles, whipped cream. Good finish, but not exceptional, oaky, liquorice, rich earth. Mangrove.

  26. Moses scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    One of those whiskys that are planning an attack on the palate. Indian beer and Scottish peat meet each other in a positive way. And looking at the PLV, you can't go wrong here. He needs some water badly ... not much.
    • Nose
      A pleasant fruity balance beforehand and a complexity on the nose completely unexpected. He has a surprising maturity for his rather young age. Fine citrus notes with sweet caramel. Aha, ... delicious.
    • Taste
      Too much alcohol. Full attack. Lots of wood and only a few toffee aromas. Clearly better after the water. Strange nutty notes and then almost flowery dried peat smoke. A bit of light pepper and a hint of vanilla. Too much drying to the end.
    • Finish
      Long astringent finish with a peppery finish. Somewhat tropical fruits with a calming, long-lasting, fine smoke. That was a dram with a surprise effect. I'm surprised BUT NOT thrilled. We don't become friends.

  27. maltaholic scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    My first Indian.
    Nice color, golden brown.

    He also has a slight smokiness, but much sweeter.
    Remember Kilchoman.

    Strong start, strong, spicy-sweet.
    Juniper berries, licorice, oak.

    I do not know, he is not bad.
    But he can not really convince.
    There must be even better ...

    You smell very strongly the influence of the wood. This in combination with fruit. The taste starts as sweet fruit, but ends slightly on the bitter, tannic-like side. Finish is mediocre.

  35. zaphod155 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A rather powerful malt with sweet, dark aromas, but unfortunately quite inharmonious.
    • Nose
      Sweet start with red grapes. Honey, vanilla and a light sour cherry note. The alcohol still bites a bit in the nose. Some cinnamon and brown sugar are also included and a slight hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      Sweet and malty. Distinct oak flavor. Very creamy in the mouth. A light pepperiness. Raisins and currants. With a little water, the spiciness intensifies and dark chocolate is added. Some peat can be guessed.
    • Finish
      Pretty long. Sweet, spicy and chocolaty.

      maybe the samples is a little old, I cannot get much out of it. light, grassy, sunflower oil, a little malt and some oak. green apples. a drop of water didn´t change anything.
    • Taste
      oh, there´s a little peat in it, it´s medium sweet, fruitier than the nose with mostly apples and tinned peaches. slightly caramelly and nutty.
      much better and more intensive than the nose.

      At first very restrained. Takes a while to unfold. Fruity - malty sweetness with banana porridge, tart cherry and some unripe fruit, so a little sour. Matched with a pinch of spices (including vanilla) and perfume (floral). Mild - fine and in balance!
    • Taste
      Unfortunately, the taste can not compete with the nose. Light body and very fruity. Again, the banana is in the foreground and unfortunately accompanied by sharpness. Little complexion!

  41. AdelphosHume did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Much improved with a bit of water. The harsher acetate and phenol notes soften with time in the glass, too. Overall, it seems a well made and integrated whisky. For me, it seemed similar in character to less peat heavy Ardbegs. 
    • Nose
      W/O Water: Hint of new-make (yeastiness) but without the
      copper, mellow medicinal peat, some green fruits, and alcohol burn.

      W/1ml:50ml water: Very soft medicinal peat and barley malt, sweet
      peach vinegar, soft Irwin mango and cream, ginger and brown sugar, oak tannins,
      hint of toffee, candy syrup ( the kind that come in wax tubes), vanilla and
      cinnamon, not quite ripe guava, and a slight alcohol burn (fades after 10
      minutes).
    • Taste
      Honey and citrus, floral tannins, briny peat, wood-smoke and toffee, a hint of tropical fruit, and a hint of charcoal roasted sweet potatoes.
    • Finish
      Honeycomb and hay, orange blossom water, fades out to nutmeg,
      incents and resin

    On the nose, malt, spices, old wood and red fruits! In the mouth, it stings a little, smoked relan and multi-fruit red sensation, very pleasant! In the end, quite long, with candied fruit and woody, but ... too monolithic! A very good dram that can recall at times some abunnad'hs!

    Light peat that melts in a soft atmosphere, but also very malty with some fruits too ripe. On the palate: 50% really? What flexibility. Strength and finesse, superb presence, malt is really in the spotlight, with this light peat wire. Finish very long and well spiced, slightly peaty. With a little water, the sweetness increases on the nose. On the other hand, it loses all its structure and intensity in the mouth and becomes very watery. To have a whisky whisper and take a picture of his face when he discovers it is an Indian whisky after he says it's very good.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    N:  After nearly 8 years of abstinence, its time to forgive - and time to try more Amrut [2016]. Im tasting three Amrut’s today with the man himself, Ashok Chokalingam. An interesting fact about Amrut - despite only having 14 malt whisky distilleries in the whole of India [2016], they produce more whisky than Scotland. Strong phenols here, well it is bottled at 50%. Mainly an oily-cereal base with clear and strong bourbon cask elements. Smaller notes include hints of green fruits and a peat=mineral quality. Water boosts the latter compounds. Quality of the barley spirit seems evident, how very different from Amrut whisky back in the day when it first appeared on the UK scene in 2004 - although the Amrut distillery was formed way back in 1948.
    T: The grain is clean and the arrival true. Theres some chew.
    F: Keeps on the straight and narrow. Fine
    C: Decent malt. No complexity as such but a competent and solid barley spirit that tastes more like a 10yo in parts than the maximum 5 years that Amrut dare allow their spirit to be exposed to their harsh elements. Despite the relatively quick outturn, the demand for Amrut is higher than the speed of supply. Salsa time: WB

    Serge says:

    Amrut 'Fusion' NAS (50%, OB, Batch#1, Bottled March 2009)
    They used two malts to produce this baby, Indian and (peated) Scottish.
    Colour: gold. Nose: certainly less emphatic than the Double Cask, maybe
    I should have put this one before the latter despite the higher
    strength. A little grassier, leafier and grainier, more on tea and
    various infusions. I do not get much peat I must say. With water:  opens
    up and gets much fruitier. Pineapple jelly and blood oranges, vanilla.
    Mouth (neat): plays its game much better than on the nose after the
    stunning Double Cask. Tinned apricots and pineapples with quite some
    pepper, ginger and nutmeg plus notes of lemon squash that play with the
    tip of your tongue. With water: easy fruity, creamy, almost liqueur-ish.
    Apricot liqueur. Finish: long, on the same flavours. Very small peppery
    and leathery notes in the aftertaste. Comments: simply very good, but
    needs water on the nose. I think the ‘Two Continents’ that I tried last
    year was a little more to my liking. SGP:541 - 82 points

      8,6 Długi, słodki oraz lekko pikantny z nutą toffi, śliwek, cynamonu, imbiru oraz kawy z mlekiem.

    To me: Simple spirit, not worth long notes. Some oak, overall not a well-rounded character. I am struggling to find the best way how to deal with the rest of my 10cl sample...may discard it, life is too short and a lot of great malts wait out there

  64. MaltyMillionaire scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Initially, the whisky had more dry peat qualities and sharper spice. These qualities mellowed considerably over the 7-month period of tasting, improving the whisky greatly. Not a 'world whisky of the year' for me, but definitely pleasant.
    • Nose
      Pancakes in browned butter (yup), very subtle peat smoke, and not-so-subtle spice (clove, cinnamon, cardamom).
    • Taste
      Buttery and soft, with soft peat and smoke and a hint of mild honey for sweetness. The spice builds rapidly and is quite pronounced, penetrating the butteriness.
    • Finish
      Loooooooong......and wonderful. Lots of spice again, buffered with a nice maltiness.

  65. Goethe scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Quite a decent whisky for its young age.

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10 (2015)
    • Nose
      Roasted almonds, plums, vanilla, honey, tobacco, fudge, gingerbread.
    • Taste
      Sweet bacon, plums, tobacco, some pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium. Again some ginger and some honey cardboard.

  67. Blo scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Quite good but a noch too simple and monolithic for my taste.

    Tasted at Whisky Live Paris 2015.
    • Nose
      Noses a bit like sherry, but the fact is that this is exclusively matured in ex bourbon casks so... A bit smoky, on cake notes. The alcohol seems to be well integrated.
    • Taste
      Typical Amrut, you can feel the hot climate where it matures on the first dram. Powerfull and gourmand.
    • Finish
      Medium

    Kudos! I have been skeptical, but this is actually pretty good whisky. In comparison to Scotch you can feel the hot climate of it's provenance. Along with the spirit the humid heat is bottled. 
    • Nose
      plums in bacon! vanilla, a touch of acacia and forest honey, apricots, malted barley, assam tea, some pipe tobacco, oak. Adding water adds some dark cherry jam and caramel. 
    • Taste
      powerful, hot, good body at 50 % ABV, burnt caramel, plums, still a bit wrapped in bacon an fried in an old iron pan, sweetness develops, some black pepper, quite some ginger, leather, tobacco, bitter oranges. 
    • Finish
      quiet long assuming it's rather young age on leather, ginger, nutmeg, orange peel. 

  70. ThS scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    BATCH 1 of MARCH 2009: 6 years of bottle could they have an influence on the whisky? I do not know, but it's really very good. A daily dram of choice, rather old-fashioned elsewhere. It makes me think, in some ways, Talisker 10.
    • Nose
      Fruit (apricot, plum), smoke, leather, all melted while being precise in the expression. A miéllé-malted background of the most beautiful effect. Citrus notes in the most volatile nose and a hint of rose essence. Sweet spices are deposited on the walls of the glass after the first sip.
    • Taste
      Oily mouth and immediately smoke. Then the red fruits appear, honey, leather, a little pepper and a greedy floral note.
    • Finish
      Long, more spicy, honeyed, fragrant (fruits and flowers mixed).

  71. HunterRomario scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    I took a sample from the Whisky Festival, compared to Amrut Indian Single Malt, and Fusion got better.
    • Nose
      The smell is of a heavier style, a mixture of peat, overgrowed to the rotten fruit and flesh. Underneath you can find honey. The smell is nice, distinctive, I like it pretty much. (86 b)
    • Taste
      On the tongue oil impression, even if it turns out to have a thinner body. Fruitful sweetness, woodyness, peat is only here in a hint of a hint. Spicy spices in the flavor. (84 b)

  72. ThS scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    None of the shoplinks here is for the batch 1... Batch 1 is sold out for years now... If you click and buy with these shoplinks, you certainly won't have the first batch but the last one...

  76. numen scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    sample from a friend
    • Nose
      Lots of malt and cereal at first blush. Very fruity and heavy on the
      tropical. Pineapple and lemon zest for that touch of bitterness. This
      reminds me of a classic Clynelish profile, only less smoky and waxy.
      There's something of corn-stalks and buttered biscuits. It's
      interesting, to say the least.
    • Taste
      Silky and supple texture. Honey, beeswax, light dates for the slightly
      darker note, and more lemon. And pineapple. It takes a malty and peppery
      turn on the tongue at the end.
    • Finish
      There's a slight smokiness, but it's extremely mellow. The same fruits,
      though new flavors emerge: cardamom, oak (or oaky cardboard), all-spice,
      and thinned honey. Light and pleasantly inoffensive. It doesn't quite
      go on or have a full finish, but it's nice.

    a quite complex yet straightforward whisky
    the young but very tasty comes over

      sweet apricot
      light smoke
      Salt and spice, with liquid acacia honey infuses the finish

    What an intense whisky. I like it very much
    • Nose
      Sweet, nougat, cherry jam;

      water: sweet and creamy; sweet barley; some peat? spices
    • Taste
      Fat; does not feel strong considering the ABV. Great taste - sweet with waves of spices.
    • Finish
      Very long - fantastic - on spices and sweetness

    Peat

    and floral honey aroma, malt, sultanas, plums, dates, butter, peanuts

    and green tea. Vanilla sweetness, smoke, pepper, orange, figs, peaches,

    almonds and vanilla. Long, fruity and peaty end.

  81. mmaclean scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Balance, complexity, and surprising maturity for its age -- these are

    the defining characteristics of the best Indian whisky I have ever

    tasted. Amrut is doing some great things, and this whisky just elevated

    them to a new level. Combining Indian malt and Scottish peated malt,

    this whisky shows a sweet side, but is never cloying, with rich caramel,

    vanilla custard, and fruit cocktail in light syrup, balanced by vibrant

    -- almost floral -- dried peat smoke, delicate white pepper, and a hint

    of tropical fruit (toasted coconut, pineapple). Soothing, lingering

    smoke finish. I look forward to more great whiskies from Amrut.

  82. SilentStill scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    One of the better amruts.
    • Nose
      Fairly tart nose, lots of oak, but this rather mild. Spicy-fresh.
    • Taste
      On the palate quite oily-creamy in consistency. Again spicy, this time not so harsh, but with nutty undertones.
    • Finish
      Rather short finish, again tart, tobacco flavors.

  83. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This is a very good whisky, with a nice attack on the palette.
    • Nose
      Neat: Powerful nose and woody aromas. Vanilla, oak and bark. Water: Now there is a nice citrus and spicy notes coming forward.
    • Taste
      Neat: Strong taste of alcohol. Lots of wood and some toffee flavors. Water: The oaky flavors are still there, and some nuts and cardboard.
    • Finish
      Neat/Water: Long finish, with a peppery end.

  84. Lafroy scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Very classic with notes of fruits, cherry, lemons, tangerine peel and roots. Some flowers and honey in the background noticeable. It seems very fresh.
    • Taste
      Impressively sweet and creamy. Honey and fruits, hints of candies, prunes and cornflakes. Although it´s 50% in strength it seems powerful and deep.
    • Finish
      Medium long and very fruity and sweet.
