Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Amrut Fusion to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Amrut Fusion Bottling Note

Fusion is a particularly apt name for this fantastic single malt whisky from Amrut. Y'see, it's made with barley grown in India, where the Amrut Distillery can be found, as well as peated barley from Scotland! Makes sense, right? Not just a clever name, it's also a cracking whisky, offering up generous helpings of fresh fruit, honey, spice and a good whiff of smoke.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Rich, barley, fruity. Big on citrus, spices, creamy sweetness. A hint of peat.

Palate: Oaky, rich, gentle peat, coffee, dark chocolate. Fruity.

Finish: Long, spiced, marmalade, sweetness.

Amrut Fusion Reviews


Amrut Fusion, a top notch Indian single malt and one sould not give it a miss. Last week my friend brought this and enjoyed it

15th October 2020


I got a bottle for the fathers day present. Could not wait for the day.
"Wow." What a drink. Never had anything like it. Awsome.

19th June 2020

A very good drink to enjoy.

Happen to enjoy Amrut Fusion Single Malt Whisky. Enjoyed it to the fullest. Being an ex serviceman consumed many brands of liquor and found Amrut Fusion SingleMalt Whisky a class apart.

Peaty Whiskey for Indian taste

let us accept it is a peaty whisky for Indian taste. People who like peaty whiskeys can go for it. However, people who fancy a different taste can go for other single malt that are not peaty

1st February 2020

Affordable high-level all-rounder

Among the world's best for the price. A lovely meeting between fruity-chocolate sweetness and gentle smokiness - in the nose, in the palate, and even in the finish. Resembles JW Blue Label, but more distinctive, yet also more affordable. Hardly can think about anything more interesting in that price category (and even higher).

23rd January 2020

Great whishky

Peaty and fruity chocolate taste with smooth finish.

8th December 2019

Very smooth

Very fine taste and very smooth no molasis indulge it is pure

I m proud to offer to my guests

Decent malt . . . Would have preferred more full body and dry on the finish

5th October 2019

Very classic


15th September 2019

Definitely awesome drink!!!

It's a really nice drink, have brought this almost 5times till now. But there is a huge variance in pricing at Mumbai where I stay and both Delhi and Bangalore where I travel.

17th August 2019

Very tasty


14th July 2019

Awesome taste

Too good

3rd June 2019


Amazing taste everyone should taste this whisky

13th May 2019


Simply superb amazing stuff

19th January 2019

So Good

So good that I don't want to share this with my friends apart from a very tiny amount so that they can appreciate it & buy their own bottle. Can see why it has a sticker on the container stating Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 97 points

17th January 2019

Holy shit it is good !

This is the second Amrut I have bought and it is again one amazing stuff ! How blody hell they do that ! So well balance, not a hint of alcool on the tongue, coffe/caramel's monster and still so sweet, delicate... Jesus Christ.
If it would have been a bit more peaty and smoky, I think I would have had one of my all time favorite whisky, really really !

15th January 2019

Bold and flavoursome, but there are marriage problems

Being Indian and a whisky lover, I thought it my patriotic duty to try Amrut Fusion, the spirit that put Indian whisky on the map. Given all the accolades, I had high expectations of this whisky. Expectations that were only partly fulfilled.

On the nose, the rich perfume of European oak dominated, with typical notes of cinnamon, mace and sandalwood. No shortage of sherry casks here. On tasting, I got the spiced, sherry soaked Christmas cake that I was waiting for. The intensity was certainly there, but it seemed like the different notes weren't quite in harmony. The flavour profile was somewhere between Glenfarclas 105 and Springbank 10, but it wasn't as refined. This was probably due to the short maturation time in the cask. Unfortunately, the angels get very thirsty in the Bangalore heat. I guess there's no substitute for long aging in cool weather.

Having said all that, I'm being a little harsh. This is a very good whisky at a pretty good price when you consider that it's bottled at 50% ABV. But, no, it's not the Scotch killer that some make it out to be.

23rd November 2018

Try it!

Whisky tasting of Kavalan classic, Glenmorangie Lasanta, Ichiro port wine (?) Red leaf label, cheapo Suntory Black purple label limited 2018, and this Amrut. The Amrut takes the first from everyone on account of the fantastic finish, long and strong. How a whisky should be. Not unlike the old Miyagikyo. Good rich flavors and a real charmer. Surprised.

10th November 2018


I think this is my new fav in affordable whisky. A must try.

22nd October 2018

Definitely worth buying

Big fan of this whisky. Really enjoyed the citrus notes and slight smokey taste. Has to be my favourite Indian whisky.

26th September 2018

Good, please buy it guys

Wow, good taste.

11th September 2018

Beautiful...Even more Beautiful! Ohhhh Yeeaaah!

Gorgeous profile of passion fruit and loquat of the Amrut Single Malt but way more complex. Those spicy notes with an infant ghosting of smoke and peat. Picked up a bottle in Mumbai a couple years ago and just cracked it open. I thought Jim Murray was F.O.S. but he’s spot on this. Matter of fact it’s so beautiful I won’t be sharing this dram with anyone! Go get your own! Eager to try an American version to see if it hold up!

7th April 2018


I looked for this in north India and the liquor stores never heard of it. Must be that the cachet is in drinking real scotch, and this is all exported. So I found it after I came home. What a find, what a finish!

21st February 2018

Excellent great ...I love it drink with your love one's.

Its good. Would have been better if its aged a lot more

Fusion is a mix of heated malt from scotland and Indian malt and matured in Amrut distillery. Fruity and equally peaty. Vanilla. Ticks a lot of boxes. For a whisky thats 3.5-5 yrs old, the maltiness & oakiness are good. The complexity that is usually derived out of the malt in the cask maturing for a good long period is missed. But again, there is a high degree of evaporation due to the climate in Bangalore leading to the young age of the whisky. Almost 12% YoY. The 8yr angel's share is simply stunning though its priced much higher but that is something that deserves a 5 star. Tip: Leave the whisky to evolve a bit after opening.

31st December 2017

My first Indian whisky

Amrut fusion is a great whiskey that seems to open up even more if you take a while to finish the bottle.

21st November 2017

Surprisingly delicious and just complex enough

I had this last night at an Indian place in DC - Rasika - and it was surprisingly delicious. One of the best whiskeys I've tried. The nose hinted at the delights within, and the dram itself was sweet and complex, with notes of molasses and a hint of cardamom, slightly oily, soft yet intense. Just perfect really. A wonderful way to end the evening. I'm definitely going to pick up a bottle of this!

26th August 2017


I have had both this one and the 43% ABV expression. This was oaky and sharp on the gills. A coupla drops of water made it creamy and sweet. A complex multi-faceted dram. So much better at 43% @ 21 Euros.

12th July 2017

A miss for me

Not for me, maybe I'm not a cask strength kind of guy

30th June 2017

Bangalore banger.

Anyone who might raise an eyebrow at drinking a peated Indian whisky should try this. It's very very good with a surprising smoothness. It was a birthday treat to myself (I know, how sad), but well worth it even at 50.00.

14th March 2017


Excellent great ...I love it drink with your love one's.

14th December 2016

Amrut Fusion (70cl, 50.0%)

Doft: Viol, lakrits, svagt kanel, glaserat äpple, aprikos, lätt nötig doft, ek
Smak: Vass i smaken, aprikos, lätt lakrits och vanilj
Smak med vatten: Mindre vass, mer lakrits och aprikos, syrlig
Tyvärr så blev en del dofter lidande av vattnet såsom lakritsen och kanelen. Ganska komplicerad förmodligen ung whisky, dofta både före och efter vattnet.

15th November 2016

Not bad at allllll

Good dram.
Subtle hint of peat. Smokey bacon? Maple? Oak too. Some spice/moss.
It's a really good whisky at a very fair price. I like the peated single malt just that little bit more.

7th November 2016

Manns drinks stop. Mr Mann

Try it with hot Bombay mix to completely open your taste buds.
Bollywood songs in your mouth.
Hints of goat cheese and Brie farmhouse cheese just before the peat kicks in and then a shudder of spices and sweet mineral taste as you would get on the plains of a hot summers punjabi barely field breeze.
If you haven't been to another continent you have no idea if the heat and smell,, compared to most European cities .

18th August 2016

Wow it had been few years.

Was great

17th June 2016


Stunning quality and I'd prefer this to many a Scottish malt, particularly in these days of "rampant" sulphur. This is exceptionally deep and complex. I did not get any peat, but fruits and fudge are complex, and very clean on the palate, if ya know what I mean. Best whisky for the price, hands down.

4th June 2016

Excellent for party

I just tried last week and very much impressed.

30th May 2016

Boom in party......

Truly awesome..... I love it

25th April 2016

Wow. Something different every time.

This is a remarkably multi-faceted dram. The balance of creamy sweetness (I got fudge or Werthers' original), citrus (I got a hint of mandarin) with peat is just sublime. I think it's the kind of whisky that everyone will get something different from and in different strengths. For £50, this is one of the best whiskies you can buy in my humble opinion.

14th March 2016


I was told to try this about a year ago, I never managed to find it.
just got back from Goa, where I found a bottle for just under £22.
What an awesome whiskey, it's up there with the best of them. A 5 star drink if ever there was one.

13th March 2016

Big Up to the Ji's

Just spent a month in India where this sells at 2300 rupees ( 29€) , this is a top whisky , complex with loads going on , with temperatures at 32° at 6pm an ice cube was added and this stuff deserves the name Amrut
( nectar of the gods) , smooth as Shiva's bum and with so many different flavours happening its hard to keep up.

12th March 2016

Deserves 5.

Strong and smooth.

Mother of all malts !! Go for it

1st January 2016

In short, the best whiskey in this price range

This whiskey is hands down the best whiskey under $100. The only reason you could choose to avoid this whiskey is if you are a snob and think India can't make whiskey.

So complex from beginning to end, it drinks slightly different neat from on rocks but no worse or better.

10th November 2015


Now this is intense! If you are looking for a great whisky that is different that your normal..then this is for you. I have 70+ whiskys in my collection and I have to say this one has the most complexity.

3rd October 2015

Nice surprise

Finally found this dram at a nice restaurant last night. I have been looking to try this one for a while now. I really liked this whisky. It was an explosion of flavour and became one of my new favourites.

16th August 2015

Totally deserve my 10

It has become an icon in any bar but still remains a very hard to find as the demand is ever increasing. A perfect and easy drinkable whisky yet being very complex with hints of vanilla, spices, coffee and a wonderful altogether package, anyday better than some 4 times costlier whiskys. If you come across one grab it before someone else does.

7th August 2015

Great then Oops

I tried a bottle in India and LOVED it. Complex yet balanced, good fragrance, nice finish. Then I bought a bottle of one of their other whisky's and was solidly disappointed. I suspect the reviewers giving this a bad review may have accidently purchased the wrong variant. I did and I regret it. But I loved the Fusion.

12th December 2014

My search stops here

I'd been on a search for balanced peaty and fruity kind of whisky since long and had tried various islay and speyside malts besides the blended ones...To my surprise it is the one i cannot conmplain(not easy to please me)......I'd rather rate it much higher than glenfiddich, burnfoot, talisker, balvenie and many others i tried....My personal opinion.

9th December 2014

Complex, spicy, nutty

A real surprise. Once I got past my Scotch snobbery and bought this I was so pleasantly surprised. It actually tastes Indian, in ways that defy easy explanation. There's spice, wet wood, exotic fruit and a warm, rainy fragrance. Just lovely. And it's cheap, for a quality whisky, so no excuse to widen the palate and experience.

6th December 2014


Not that gr8 as it is made out to be - Just wondering that the bottle was left in a parked car under the sun and was quite warm - saw some smoke coming out when opened - did the heat change the taste?

29th November 2014

Truly Superb Whisky - easily one of the World's best by far.

This has got to be one of the finest Whiskies produced anywhere in the World - beautifully balanced with a lovely flavour reminiscent of 20-30 year old products. Outstanding value for money, and at such low prices this can't be beaten.

17th November 2014

Too Expensive

At this price I will get glenfiddich!!! Indian doesn't mean I will spend unnecessary amounts for just passion.

14th October 2014


I tried a glass in a pub and was blown away by the depth and complexity. It seemed to have everything, a combination of orange, coffee, chocolate, oak with a touch of smoke at the finish. It offered a depth which I've not experienced in a whisky that wasn't at least twice the price.
But, the bottle i bought is completely different. It lacks all the above and offers a nutty, malty taste and that's all. Not actually that bad but no where near the quality of my first experience. Maybe a weak batch but as I don't have endless money I will not buy again.

30th July 2014

Favourite whisky EVER

Unbelievable stuff but the label looks like a Kindergarten class designed it. I bought this in for the bar I work in but the crappy label makes it a hard sell, except to the open-minded

23rd July 2014


Had read about Amrut Fusion. Did search for a bottle in New Jersey in a shop, the size of a football field. Thought I'd gift a friend something other than our favourite Laphroaig. Just been gifted two bottles by a Bangalorean friend. Opened and tasted Fusion. Deserves all the awards. I have just been converted to an Amrut diehard. Thank you, Mr. Jagdale!

17th June 2014


Heaps of oak and a finish that carries on until you wake up in the morning. One of my all-time favourite whiskies and one which blows a lot of the more established and expensive competition clear out of the water!!

10th June 2014

Excellant Whisky !!! value for money ... seductive in taste :)

Excellent ! is the only word that can describe this seductive beauty :) never thought an Indian single malt can compete with speyside single malts... I am very glad to stand corrected :) Amrut FTW !

7th February 2014

Two whiskies in one-true fusion

Received a bottle at Christmas from daughter (sweet thing!). I found that the peat was nicely pronounced when sampled neat--added a little water and, hey-presto!!-transformed into a Speyside-like malt. Enjoying some while I type this......

27th January 2014

for the experienced whisky drinker

This is different from your standard supermarket whisky but if you like a slighty peaty type with bags of flavour then this is a very good dram. This is one of the nicest whiskeys that I have tried in long time.

14th January 2014


Strong cinnamon and raisin notes. Reminds me very much of the Clynelish 1997 Distiller's edition, which is one of my favorite sherried whiskies. And this Amrut is significantly cheaper.

13th January 2014

Great whisky for the price

I am a big fan of Japanese whiskies such as Karuizawa, Hibiki 21 and Yamazaki japanese oak which are all relatively expensive. For the price I think this is nearly as enjoyable and can only get better. Well worth a try?

11th December 2013

Disappointed with the current lot

I have been a fan of Fusion and have been though 7 bottles. But I was extremely disappointed with the one I bought last week ( Price increased to Rs.2700/- here in Bangalore ) It was like a poor Indian whisky ! Not quite sure what went wrong. Our recommendations to friends will now stop !!

7th December 2013

Amrut Fusion..india

what a drink i had its words the best one..i am proud to be a bangaloren..

7th October 2013

From a Bangalorean!

For my daily needs, Whyte & Mackay does just fine. Amrut Fusion for INR 2500 a bottle was a leap in taste for the price, finished the bottle 3 days from when bought. Was available at a local MRP outlet and well displayed.

15th August 2013

Fusion ? True

This is Talisker wrapped in mildly sweet, toasted cashew nuts and aromatic wood. Brilliant

9th August 2013

Only available in bangalore...

Apparently due to the influence of Vijay Mallya(owner of the rival United Breweries, incidentally whose single malt offering absolutely SUCKS) countrywide, this excellent single malt is hardly available in the Indian market except in a few stores in Bangalore.

Nevertheless available quite freely all over the USA now.

5th August 2013


Damn Good........

Mr mymic

All the nutty creaminess of any good Asian desert, one of the best mslts I've ever tried.

Rates in india

Dear sir can I know the store where I can get amrut fusion single malt whiskey in Delhi or noida?

14th July 2013

I have to wonder

if some people pay off the "Biblical author(s)", as Fusion tastes like a lot of artificial flavors in some OK scotch

28th June 2013

not pleasant

I agree with the poster above about the Chemical taste. It doesn't make me think of whiskey at all. I don't know what to think.

25th April 2013


Am actually not a whisky person but Amrut Fusion has been a revelation. Finished a bottle in no time!! Highly recommended.

29th April 2012

Young Taste - Remarkable Nose

This whisky has a remarkable - Fantastic nose. As good as any Scotch Whisky in it's class. Nutty and full of sweet dark sugar. On the palate is full on slightly peat blast, with a young spirit taste. Nothing offensive, actually great. The finish is long with heavy fruity overtones. All-in-all, a truly great single malt whisky. I recommend this to any good friend.

Chemical taste

Does not work for me at all

5th November 2011

Just finished my first bottle ...

... and I must say that it was very pleasent indeed. It has a very strong flavour which is not to overyone's liking. If you don't like blow-your-socks-off Scotch single malts, then I don't think that you will be a big fan; from the tasting panel of my friends, the majority didn't like it - but I did! My preference in style is first and foremost, a decent XO Cognac (I know that's not whisky), followed peated scotch single malts - Irish, American, Canadian, and the lighter more floral Scotch single malts I don't really like. So this whisky fitted in with my preference in style. I just need to wait for it to come back into stock to order another bottle!

29th May 2011


Finally managed to sample this much-talked-about whisky. Very interesting fusion indeed. You'll feel more than a hint of peat really if your bar otherwise has Indian single malts. But great finish! Very difficult to find a bottle though.

25th December 2010

Really nice!

This one is great. I must say i like Amrut overall,but this one is probably the best of them all!

16th May 2010

Bottle code: Batch 02 - Nov '09

Nose: Dark sugar, spicy vanillas with a juicy bitterness in the background. Taste: Sweet ginger syrup on entry, burnt orange peel follows with warm spices. Finish is long and deep. The complexity here is engrossing and strange - a wonderful dram and definitely a must for any enthusiast.
