Nosing:
Distinctly confidant liquorice-bourbon notes with near perfect bitter-sweet balance; burnt honeycomb and toffee also abound
Taste:
Outstanding richness and sheen to the enormous barley-oak sweetness; again there is a big bourbony cut to the cloth with all the liquorice and molassed sugar normally associated; but the barley adds that extra dimension
Finish:
Long, wonderfully layered oak offering variations of a sweet dry theme; a touch silky with some cream toffee at the death

Indian whisky has never been very high on my list, but curiosity finally convinced me to give Amrut's core range bottling a try. Fresh citrus, vanilla and a touch of oak spice offer a pleasant but rather simple nose. Green apples, mango and sweet malt linger in the back. The palate reminds of a misbehaving teenager: young, immature and not very harmonic, I am struggling to enjoy this dram. Lemon, ginger and some bitter green tea rescue the medium finish. I know there are better versions of Amrut available, but where is the 'Indian identity', I wonder?

Nosing: VanillaSpicesSweetZitrusBanana
Sweet vanilla, mixed spices. A dark caramel note which I associate with dark treacle. Mixed citrus peel and a hint of fresh banana. The nose clearly signals it as a fairly young whisky, but everything is well integrated.

Taste: SweetVanillaFruit
Sweet arrival. Lots of vanilla and fruitiness. Slightly creamy texture.

Finish: ZitrusSpicesFloralOak
Medium length. Citrus notes return, ends quite dry. Theres a strange floral note right at the start of the finish it's hard to put a finger on but it sort of reminds me of rosewater.


Comment:
I'd never tried amrut before despite being aware of it for a long time. I thought I'd give the general release a go as it isn't especially pricey. It's a perfectly decent release, but I think there are better options out there at the same price point. There are a couple of interesting points to it, the nose is decent, and the floral note in the finish is fun, but overall it isn't my favourite style of whisky. I would be interested in seeing what a longer maturation would do for it, but I understand that those versions are prohibitively expensive due to the hot climate where the distillery is which is unfortunate.
