Amrut Single Malt, 46%

Price: $65 Issue: Fall 2018 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Made from Indian barley, the nose is soft, fruity, and spicy. There's cooked apples in crème anglaise, ripe apricot, sweet barley, nectarine, fresh mango, sticky cotton candy, and dry oak spices. Creaminess continues on the palate, with apple, aromatic spices of pepper, ginger, and aniseed, with passion fruit, clementine, and zested limes. This should be your starting point for exploring Amrut's whiskies.
