Amrut Fusion gets its name from the fact that it uses two barleys: Indian and Scottish - with the latter being peated for good measure. Fusion has been picking up awards ever since it first appeared in 2009, and in 2012 was named the best whisky for a Rob Roy in the Ultimate Cocktail Challenge in New York.

I usually don't write any review but I will make an exception this time. I ordered Amrut fusion and received in a very elegant and secure packing. It's affordable yet does not compromise on taste. Very woody and rich and finishes of with citrusy or I should say marmalade and hint of sweetness. I will buy again not just because its affordable but gives lot pleasure whole drinking this fine single malt whiskey.

Top class tipple! Tried it for the first time in an Indian restaurant recently and it was simply sumptuous - deep, smoky, chocolate, vanilla taste.Great stuff.

Top shelf stuff, period.
Tried this at a blind whiskey tasting. It is a very good malt indeed...at half the price of its contemporaries. Highly recommended.

Bought a Spice Tree and Old Pulteney 17 on Friday. This is the standout winner. Delicious, shame I'm finishing my last glass.

"Nose" Concentrated floral notes of mint, lavender, jasmine and loam. Brine too. "Palate" Powerful horse kick of cedar, cloves, cardamon, spiced dark treacle, coriander. Dark chocolate that has a heavy weighting of cocoa. "Finish" Long lingering flavors of polished mahogany, leather, mouth watering body, red and black licorice, slight anise, pungent cocoa, raisin, Moroccan dates. Rich black coffee.

The initial hit is of a chicori then prune com chocholate. With a cherry like medium to long finish.
Amazing, thorough delight.

I bought a bottle of this in on MG road in Bangalore. I found it pleasant, with lots of wood, vanilla and spice. Having said this, the finish is somehow a little rough and unrefined. So I would recommend this whiskey but not over a Talisker 10yo as some have suggested.

tried it at my friends, his son purchased from edinburgh highland show, at first thinking surely can't be all that good... then it was amazing in quality and price, well done to the Indians...

Adorers of Clynelish and Talisker should not hesitate to purchase a bottle of this excellent and affordable Whisky! Great stuff!

For me it is Highland park 18 at half the cost. Very smooth, delicious, love it.

Personally, I get less Talisker in this than T Williams. For me it comes over more like a more chocolatey but less floral Highland Park. Lots of easy smoke, waves of spicey orange. Very, very good.

Delicious Whisky to enjoy for the buck you spend. Great job done to get the smooth finish!
- Bhagavan, 22nd Jul '10
Let me say this - for once I agree with most of the reviewers. A pretty good malt but not from Scotland so beware!

Lovely whisky. There's something quite Irish about the finish, a slight soapiness, which is lovely.
