Amrut – Single Malt Peated

Amrut Single Malt Peated

My friend who owns Tampa local store Whiskey Willy’s called me over to sample some new products from the Amrut Distillery. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. They had a lot of products to sample. Anyways, the thing that had me interested was that it is a product distilled in India. When I think Whiskey, I think Kentucky, Ireland, Scotland, southern style sour mash, but I guess whiskey has fans worldwide. Rightfully so. I picked my personal favorite out of the batch to review today, their Single Malt Peated release.

Spirit Info:

  • Distillery: Amrut Distillery

  • Purchase Price: $49.99

Nose: Clean fermented Scottish barley and smoked fruit dominate the nose. I didn’t get much of the peat in the scent.

Palate: It comes on strong and clean. I get that barley carrying through with a nice malted flavor, followed closely by the peat. There’s not much more. It’s one of the more uncomplicated whiskeys I have tried, but it is isn’t a bad thing.

Body: Light, refreshing, clean, and warm.

Afterglow: This is where the peat shines through mixed with the smoked fruit that was notably absent from the body.

Conclusion: This was definitely as interesting as I thought it would be. The word that I kept thinking while sampling it was “clean.” It’s a difficult thing to describe. It might be that heavy Scottish barley that makes it seem that way. For the price, it was definitely a bottle I would consider keeping in the back of my cabinet as a “you want to try something good but interesting” bottle when friends are over.

Grade: B
