Indian Single Malt Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 50%
Amrut Fusion is one of the pioneering Indian single malt whisky distillery's greatest ever successes, and has been astonishing whisky fans at blind tastings for over a decade now.
Made by mixing unpeated Indian barley with peated Scottish barley in the mashbill and bottled at a no-nonsense 50%, Amrut Fusion was a sensation when it first appeared in 2009 and remains a top class mix of deliciously clean barley and fruity notes with a strong peaty undertone.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Heavy, thickly oaked and complex: some curious barley-sugar notes here shrouded in soft smoke. Big, but seductively gentle, too.
Palate: The delivery, though controlled at first, is massive! Then more like con-fusion as that smoke on the nose turns into warming, full blown peat, but it far from gets its own way as a vague sherry trifle note (curious, seeing how there are no sherry butts involved) - the custard presumably is oaky vanilla - hammers home that barley - fruitiness to make for a bit of a free-for-all; but for extra food measure the flavours develop into a really intense chocolate fudge middle which absolutely resonates through the palate.
