Jim Murray's Whisky Bible
Insider knowledge: Amrut Single Malt Whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from India. If distilled in America the spelling would be Amrut Single Malt Whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Intense barley and grain, nutty, citrus, apricot.
Palate: Barley, honey develops with allspice, apricot, rum.
Finish: Apples, apricot, greengages, malt, fruit.
Overall: Very interesting, multifaceted.
Had some of this in a tasting set I got.. if I'm being honest (and naive) I wasn't expecting too much. It stands up any of the usual standard 10yr old expressions I've had. The best, no, not by a distance but more than good enough to make me think that getting hold of some more Amrut's will be really interesting

Certainly not unpleasant, but otherwise slightly hollow and watery. While it has a "distinct" flavour, compared to other whiskies I've tried, this does not make it a standout. The bouquet is sweet, with a hint of sacrin. The opening is sugary, young fruits, hint of unripened banana. It fades to a subtle young oak finish. Overall, fairly simple.

Sorry to say that this Amrut doesnt work for me at all. It tastes like old sour shoe. I do hope the other Amrut's are alot better than this one.

It has a stronger, more complex taste than the fruity, banana-esque nose gives away.
