Insider knowledge: Amrut Peated Cask Strength whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from India. If distilled in America the spelling would be Amrut Peated Cask Strength whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Peat is surprisingly restrained, toffee, dirty phenols, fruity.
Palate: Peat, fruit, sweet, over-ripe bananas, pic 'n' mix.
Finish: Sweetness, bonfire smoke, barley and over-ripe fruit appear.
I'm sorry but I'm not jumping on the bandwagon of this one. It's off balance and there's a distinct off note in the finish. I did taste the version bottled in 2009 so I hope you got your hands on a better batch. I've tasted a lot better from amrut though ...

I bought this for a a bit of novelty value, the idea of whisky produced somewhere hot like India! BUt actually its v good, diffrent to Scotch whiskey but fruity, peaty, spicy. Great price.
