Other Info:
India and Scotland are very different in climate. Indeed, single malt in India matures much faster, and it is for this reason that we see no age statements; most expressions are only a few years old. But this is not to the whisky's detriment. The spirit loses as much as 12% abv per year due to the warmer climes, as opposed the 2% that the angel's take each year in Scotland. As with all single malt whisky, Indian single malt must be matured for a minimum of three years and a day in oak casks, and it is the produce of a single distillery, distilled from nothing other than water, yeast and malted barley. Indian single malt whiskies are known for their fruity, malty character.

JIM MURRAY'S WHISKY BIBLE - 82 POINTS - 'The press picked this up and made a point of saying that experts can't tell between this and top Scottish malt Interesting. Certainly this can be easily mistaken for an old Scotch single malt, though not a top one. That said, this is enjoyable stuff especially when considering the Indian distiller's perennial problem of overcoming the fierce temperatures that make maturation such a nightmare. With Amrut there is profound oak on both the nose and finish, giving the impression of a Speysider at about 35 or 36 years. That, usually, isn't always good. However, the sweet richness of the malt on the palate is a joy, with a boundless energy that pulses through to the prickly, oaky finish. Solid, honest whisky (with a non-scotch flourish at the finish) that would, after a black coffee, follow the finest Chicken Korma.'
