Neel’s Chairman’s Reserve selection showcases what he believed in; an Indian Single Malt could stand proudly along side great Scottish Single Malts. Amrut Greedy Angels 10 YO is just that.
Aging under the fierce sun of Bangalore, with its low humidity, isespecially tricky over longer periods as there is a critical periodbeyond which the whisky could turn too woody. Produced from 100% unpeated Indian 6 row barley, then aged 10 years in ex-bourbonbarrels.
We have bottled this whisky at 55% ABV non-chill filtered and no added color, to reveal it’s depth and complexity. There are only 900 bottles world-wide and 300 bottles for the USA.
With the Angels consuming over 65% of the barrel contents over 10 years, this truly deserves the moniker “Greedy Angels”.
LIMITED RELEASE : 900 bottles worldwide : 300 bottles USA
NOSE: Coconut dipped in vanilla sauce punctuated by paradise of tropical fruits. Mild oak tannins just tease the nose followed by a whisper of honeyed marmalade.
PALATE: Honey and tropical fruits join together to form a deadly combo! caressed by chocolaty coconuts (bounty!) Vanilla pods and mild citrus notes are not far behind. The entire experience is velvety and refreshing.
FINISH: Mouthwatering at first and then drying, layers of spice, woody notes, chocolate covered roasted almonds, lingering.
