NOSE: Heavy, thickly oaked and complex • curious barley-sugar shrouded in soft smoke • Big, but seductively gentle.
PALATE: Sweet desert flavours meld into intense spice • pallet filling complexity.

Single Malt Whisky • 50% abv • Aged in Oak Barrels • 100% Barley - 25% peated and 75% unpeated.
Fusion is made by combining 75% of the cask strength single malt and 25% of the Peated Single Malt Cask Strength. The combination is then further aged in ex-bourbon barrels for 6 to 9 months.
The barley is Peated in Inverness, Scotland at Bairds Malt.
The initial PPM level is between 25 to 30 however this starts to dissipate during shipping. The finished Peated Single Malt has a ppm level of between 15 to 18.
There is no age statement as maturation occurs at 3,000 ft with an average temperature of 91 degrees and humidity of 70% therefore the angel's share is considerable and can be as high as 15% per year. (generally 2% in Scotland).
It is estimated that 1 year of aging in Bangalore = 3 years in Scotland.
Amrut Distillery is family owned and operated, located in Bangalore, India operating since 1948.
Amrut buys bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill, Buffalo Trace and Jack Daniels.
