Amrut Fusion Single Malt Whisky 700ml
- Nose: Heavy, thickly oaked and complex: some curious barley-sugar notes here shrouded in soft smoke. Big, but seductively gentle, too.
- Palate: The delivery, though controlled at first, is massive! Then more like con-fusion as that smoke on the nose turns into warming, full blown peat, but it far from gets its own way as a vague sherry trifle note (curious, seeing how there are no sherry butts involved) – the custard presumably is oaky vanilla – hammers home that barley – fruitiness to make for a bit of a free-for-all; but for extra food measure the flavours develop into a really intense chocolate fudge middle which absolute resonates through the palate.
- Finish: A slight struggle here as the mouthfeel gets a bit puffy here with the dry peat and oak; enough molassed sweetness to see the malt through to a satisfying end, though. Above all the spices, rather than lying down and accepting their fate, rise up and usher this extraordinary whisky to its exit.

The word ‘Amrut’ derives its origin from the historic language of Sanskrit and means the ‘Elixir of Life’. Staying true to our corporate ethos, our beloved founder named our distillery – Amrut Distilleries. Since its inception, every aspect of Amrut is handled with the utmost love and passion. The whisky is made using Barley grown and malted in two regions spread far apart. While a major part of the Barley originates from the feet of the great Himalayas, the rest, especially the Peated Barley is sourced from Scotland. This malted Barley is carefully mashed, distilled and then matured in select Oak barrels at our distillery in Bengaluru – the Garden City of India (3000 ft. above sea level | tropical climate) in small batches to preserve the natural aroma.
To retain the natural characteristics of this Oak-aged Indian Single Malt Whisky, we do not chill filter and bottle it in its natural colour; some haze may therefore be noticed. We hope that as a connoisseur of all good things in life, you will appreciate this product at your leisure.
