TASTING NOTES:

NOSE:  Unusually dry peat; not dissimilar to peat reek absorbed by an old leather armchair; a hint of citrus, too.

PALATE: Despite the nose, the immediate sensation is one of being caressed by molassed sugar and then a ratching up of the peat notes. As they get more forceful, so the experience becomes that little bit drier and spicier, though not without the molasses refusing to give way.

FINISH: You can tell the quality of the distillate and the barrels it has been matured in by the crystalline depth to the finish. Everything is clear on the palate and the butterscotch vanillas wrap the phenols for a comfortable and clean finale.

Also available in cask strength.

FUN FACT:

There is no age statement as maturation occurs at 3,000 ft with an average temperature of 91 degrees and humidity of 70% therefore the angel's share is considerable and can be as high as 12% per year. (generally 2% in Scotland).

It is estimated that 1 year of aging in Bangalore = 3 years in Scotland.


DISTILLERY:

Amrut Distillery is family owned and operated in Banglore, India, where it was establisehd in 1948.
