TASTING NOTES:

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.

FINISH: Seductive smoke and peat show up to bring it all together • long finish with waves of evolving complexity.

DISTILLING:

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.

DISTILLERY:

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.
