70cl / 50%
- Indian Single Malt Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
An impressive milestone for Amrut - as of 2013, this is their oldest whisky to date. Aged for over 8 years it many not sound a lot, but with the Indian environment a combination of a high Angel's Share and large flavour extraction from the casks mean that this tastes way beyond its years. An intensely flavoured and very rare dram.

Tasting Notes by Billy A
Nose: Fresh, sharp apricots, stewed gooseberries, sweet dried and fresh unripe mango, pungent orange skin, Nice biscuits, spicy grain and an underlying Bovril meatiness.
Palate: Spice up front that quickly fell back to reveal lots of fruit – citrus peel, green banana, candied papaya, sour mango and dried pineapple. There was also some spiced custard, gummi fruit and a vein of sharp, dark oak running through the middle.
Finish: Damp oak and apple skin initially, with sweet tropical fruit lingering after that faded.
