    Barley is grown at the foot of the Himalayan mountains, and peat malt is imported from Scotland

  3. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Peat, spices, vanilla, ashes. In the mouth, a good balance between the moisture of the peat and the earthy and fruity aromas. Good finish, on caramel and wood.

  4. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    sweet peat smoke with tropical fruits and Indian spices, embedded in wood. Straightforward, but really good.

  5. zaphod155 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Much better and more pleasant than the non-smoky variant. Really tasty.
    • Nose
      Sweetish, pleasant campfire smoke. Slightly unripe sweet melon, green apple, pear. A light, fresh citrus note gradually overshadows the smoke. After a while, gooseberry and milk chocolate come along.
    • Taste
      Also a sweet, pleasant smoky start. Here are rather darker fruits; red apples, mirabelles and plums. Honey and vanilla. A slight ginger sharpness comes through. The mouthfeel is quite creamy.
    • Finish
      Medium. The honey sweetness and ginger sharpness last the longest.

    On the nose, spices, yellow fruits and light peat.
    On the palate, ubiquitous smoke, peppery spices, then various fruits, caramel!
    In the final, peat is more present, as well as fruits.
    It's a good dram, but no singularity, a little too flat finally!, It lacks roundness!

    C: Amber

    N: A Scottish-like light peat comes out from the glass, along with soap and flowers like lavender and daisy. It is a dry-like, clean-like scent, with something, somehow, that makes you think of wet rocks.

    P: Still, very delicate peat spreads the mouth, together with curry and cumin. Woody and salty notes peep out, before they start turning into mineral and sweet (vanilla) scents.

     F: Definetly neither a long-lasting final, nor rich. Pleasant peat, maybe a hint of mineral; but that’s all, folks!

    Let’s put it this way: depending on your point of view, you may have opinions very dissimilar from our. In order to give a final judgment for this Amrut, we decided to ask ourself a question (we invite you to do tha same), that is: what do we expect from an Indian whisky? Our opinion is that this is a good imitation of a Scottish whisky, but definetly it is not a Scotch. Therefore, this lack of audacity, this “variatio in imitando” is not a good point to us. Finally, price is also not appealing…

  10. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Light peat veil, a little ether and some greenery. The attack is sweet, caramel and a lot of pepper. Sweet spices make their appearance in the final, mixed with caramel. The sensation of sugar remains present all along which makes this dram pleasant and very easy to drink.
