Description

Winter temperatures rarely drop below 12 °C (54 °F), and summer temperatures seldom exceed 34–35 °C (<100 °F). A fusion of Indian and Scottish barleys are used to create a big and smooth whisky with smoke and peaty aromas. Made from selected barley grown in the North West of India and nurtured by waters flowing the Great Himalayas, enrobed in wonderful fruity notes. Amrut can boast an exciting range of peated and un-peated malts, single cask maturations and variety of wood finishes.

According to head of international operations Ashok Chokalingam, the initial strategy of offering the product in restaurants was dropped, as "the resources needed are too high, both financial and human". For this reason most of the Amrut single malts are released at around 4 years old - which taste wise are akin to much older whiskies from cooler countries, such as Scotland or Ireland. The fraction lost to evaporation during ageing, known as the angels' share, is also higher in India, at 11–12% per year, than in Scotland, where the annual evaporative loss is about 2%. The city is situated at an altitude of 3000 feet above sea level and usually enjoys a moderate climate throughout the year.

Amrut Greedy Angels 8-year-old 2nd release is another milestone in Amrut Distilleries' innovative exploration of the world of single malt whisky. Four years is a long time for aging in India, as the arm weather found there encourages rapid aging. The water used in the manufacturing process is transported to the distillery by truck from a well, 15 miles (24 km) away, in a pesticide-free agricultural area owned by the company. Because India had no habit of consuming single malt at the time, the company did not consider bottling it as a single malt.

But this was the first full bottle I have ever purchased, and I was very pleasantly surprised as I sipped from it a little each evening for a few nights.The distillery initially tried importing staves to save money, but abandoned the practice due to the smell of the barrels. Palate: Slight burn from the alcohol (it is 46% ABV) but it is barely noticable, it gets almost immediately drowned out with a honey and barely flavor. Aromas of caramelised biscuits are backed with a subtle spice finish and a hint of orange peel for an added citrus zing. The quality of our packaging ensures the wine arrives safe and sound, it is full compostable or recyclable. Amrut whisky has gained global recognition with a series of awards and accolades and they continue to win over whisky lovers the world over.

The nose has aromas of vanilla, citrus, raisins and malted barely with a touch of saline minerality.An oral delight, it is something of a roller-coaster ride, with a lemon citrus nose and an intense, bittersweet taste on the palate. John Hansell, editor of American magazine Whisky Advocate, wrote that "India's Amrut distillery changed the way many think of Indian whisky – that it was, in the past, just cheap Scotch whisky blended with who knows what and sold as Indian whisky. According to Neelakanta Jagdale, "The alcoholic beverages industry was not a priority in the country. This single malt whisky is produced with Indian barley using water flowing from the Great Himalayas at Amrut distillery outside Bangalore, India.
