Solid entry single malt

This is basically a less outspoken, tame more muted and accesible version of their Cask Strenght release of this, it is a fair bit lighter in aroma and flavor but the trademark Amrut house style is still there.

Malty, biscuity, sugarcane, caramelized nuttiness, apricot, citrus, ripe banana, roasted oak spices.

This is a well rounded and solid entry dram with a nice malty new oak core.
No fancy cask finishes to hide behind, malt and oak is what you get here but it is high quality malt and oak which rivals that of good scotch.
Good maturation the Indian barley and new oak barrels work harmoniously together, a solid display of the Amrut house style.

Complex, rounded and full bodied beyond its years due to the hot climate with continuous maturation which pulls every drop of flavor out of the oak and makes the malty Amrut spirit special.
Bottled at 46% NCF and non-colored its a soft but full flavored exotic dram.

The spirit is better imparted and integrated into the barrel flavors here then many watered down older scotch whiskies.
In fact it outperforms many similarly priced 10 and 12 year older scotch whiskies in quality and pleasure.

Very Very Nice

One of my faves!

Average whisky with pungent/bitter after taste without ice or water.

Average whisky with pungent/bitter after taste without ice or water. Definitely not worth of a price tag of more than $50. Even with ice, it's not a match of some of the more inexpensive brands out there. I was excited to try it, but unfortunately this will be my first and last buy of Amrut.

Never seen "Indian Scotch" but there is Scotch made for India

Solid single malt Whisky from India that comes alive on ice for the right price . Not a big fan of using ice in my drams but this one is like Japanese style whiskey that is in essence to be served on the rocks. At 50 funbucks from Saddam's super note press you can't go wrong. Any cheaper and I'm sure the quality would surely suffer. Also great to pour for the kin without breaking the bank and show you actually give a crap about their company.
Nose apricots, marmalade, candied peach.
Taste-dates, maple oatmeal, dried apricot, spiced apple
Finish-Green apple jolly rancher, peach preserve, prune, and tiny tiny wee ghost of peat..

Very smooth. No harsh after taste. Nice little bang for your buck.

Sorry to be a whisky dick but I'm going to change my review from 3 stars to 4 stars.....After a week and a little more oxidation in the bottle this stuff has become perfectly delicious......

I'm the 'not bad but hardly great' guy..... on reflection this stuff is really rather nice...... needs a bit of water or ice to make it shine though.....but it really does a crazy tropical diamond...

Not bad....but hardly great whisky.

It's not bad. Has a juicy and striking start but the finish is slightly dry. Has a cognacy side to it, but then I'm not the biggest fan of cognac. I feel the fruity flavours are a bit too much like candy flavours and lack finesse. Slightly overrated in my opinion.

8th September 2017

Very nice!!!!

Very very nice - liked this a lot - think it's going to be a regular in my cupbard!

24th July 2017

overrated crap.

Whats with the after taste like phenol, feels like you are in a hospital or toilet - yikes.

12th June 2017

Complex but really smooth great after taste slightly on the sweeter side but cannot wait till tomorrow night when I will try again

Very good

Single malt at its best. I have tried many whiskey's and by far this is the best. The first time I had heard about it, I was laughing at the idea of an Indian scotch, thinking foreign liquour would be anyday better, but only when I actually had a sip, did I fall in love with it so bad, that no other whiskey would then do.. The moment you open the cork and sniff inside, you feel happiness and after you've had a sip trust me its true true Heaven!!

I'm a MASSIVE fan of the Amrut Fusion and the now (sadly) unavailable Kad'Ham'Bam, so much so that I would say that they are both in my top 10 whiskies of all time. This, however, is nowhere near the same level of complexity or quality. On the nose, there is tropical fruit and an almost biscuity maltiness but on the palate, it is nowhere near as interesting. Stone fruit and generic sweetness. It's the aftertaste which gets me though - it's an unpleasant, sour, lingering finish which absolutely ruins an already unremarkable whisky. I'm not sure if Jim Murray had a particularly legendary batch of this but I just cannot see why he scored it so highly. Avoid.

21st July 2016

A real beauty

Don't listen to the negative reviews here they don't understand whisky, this is a real treat for the money, fair enough it's not your standard malt but amrut is not like that it pushes you with complexity,depth and power , just get the water balance right and your in heaven, well done amrut 👍

Worlds best

Pleasant suprise

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

7th December 2013

Just Okay

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.

14th August 2013

Not My Cup of Tea.

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.
