India > World > Scotch and Other Whiskies > Single Malt > Amrut
Derives its name from the Hindi word for orange. Barrels were filled with sherry and orange peels for three years. The barrels were then filled with 3 year old whisky which was left to mature a further three years. Only 120 bottles coming to Alberta!
From the Distillery: “"The whisky is not dominated by the Orange but remarkably balanced out", notes Ashok Chokalingam, GM â€ International Markets, Amrut. "The finish is of subtle orange notes while in the middle ground you can find the traditional Amrut signature."
Distiller’s Tasting Note
Nose: A tug of war between Suet Pudding and dried figs with moderate teasing of orangey citrus. With time, more dried fruits evolve and is a stunner.
Taste: Viscous, full bodied like a syrup transcending to slat and sweet akin to orange influence and is a joy. Finish: Slightly dry and one can neglect it.
Finish: is moderately sweet and a loud dance of orange on the finale.
