Amrut Fusion is so named because is it made of 25% Scottish barley and 75% Indian barley. The Scottish barley is peated, and is distilled and matured separately from the unpeated Indian barley. After 3-5 years maturation, the two are married and aged for an additional three months in bourbon casks. Amrut, which meats “nectar of the gods” in Sanskrit, is distilled and matured in the extreme heat of Bangalore at 3000 feet above sea level. It is said that the Angel’s share, which is the percent of spirit lost to evaporation, is as high as 12% per year, and has the effect of aging the spirit faster than its years would indicate.
Amrut Fusion (2016) was tasted at Meeting No. 45 on March 31, 2016. Out of 5, we rated it very highly at 3.58. Amrut Fusion (2016) ranks 14th overall in Other Whiskey. Costing $85, this spirit is on the pricier side, but well worth the money.
Really tasty. Subtle flavor but crisp and fruity. I'll have this again for sure.
Real nice butterscotchy aroma. Super smooth mouth feel and with a little bit of spice for taste. This one is a keeper for me.
Caramel on the nose, but doesn't drink as sweet as it smells. Slight peatiness, good spice, and a pleasant burn on the finish.
