Amrut is one of the many Indian distilleries, but also one of the few to produce a real whisky. India has dethroned brands like Johnnie Walker in terms of sales volume, although this only concerns its own territory, vast obviously. These are productions that are clearly unknown here and are closer to a Brandy than a Scotch of what I know. It has been distributed relatively widely in our home for a while now, I also made my debut with the 'Fusion' version of which I should be able to find a sample by digging a little and that I found a very good report price quality. It is still the case of this version, discreet on the stalls of the wine merchants, but very recommendable in the sense that for the price you will never be disappointed. It develops interesting aromas, the whole is supported and relatively long ... a good daily dram a little exotic and a very good starter for beginners, what does the people want ?! I recommend reading my note on the 'Amrut 100' version, where I already wondered about the fact that these whiskys age in bourbon casks while developing a sherry style ... A really amazing whisky.
Nose: Soft, lots of roundness. Without eccentricity, the aromas are well in place. Plums, peaches, candied cherries. Later honey, puffed cereals. Cinnamon will settle in a rather straightforward way.
Mouth: Always soft and supple, it has stewed fruit, to make the approach is typified sherry. There is wood and some spices. Everything is infused in cloves. It's balanced, again it's not explosive but the job is done, it's an Indian whisky that holds up as a daily dram. In the second part it draws much more on the fat side, buttered, with honey, dried fruits.
Final: Much drier and bitter it offers a good resistance. The wood gains in intensity, it does not escape at once.
