Amrut Greedy Angels Details
Also from Amrut Whisky Distillery
Whisky or Whiskey
What's in a name? Amrut Greedy Angels whisky is called whisky because it's produced in India. Were it from America it would be spelled Amrut Greedy Angels whiskey, rather than whisky.
Amrut Greedy Angels
You have probably heard about the angels' share, whereby a certain amount of whisky is lost each year due to evaporation (casks are not air-tight vessels of course, they breath and it's a good job they do as it's key for maturation). The amount lost each year in Scotland is 'only' around 2% (still amounting to over 160 million bottles!), whereas in India (where the temperatures reach 40 degrees Celsius in the summer) the rate of evaporation is 10-16%(!)
It is because of India's 'greedy angels' that Amrut rarely age their single malt whiskies for longer than 4 years. This release however, was aged for 8 whole years. Almost 274 litres of spirit were lost in this experiment but what remains is really rather good indeed...
