Amrut filled casks with Oloroso sherry and added orange peels inside, then left to season the wood for more than two years. 3-year-old malt whisky was then put in those seasoned casks and matured for another 3-year period. Naarangi is Hindi for "orange". Note: This is not currently available in the U.S.

Tasting Notes

"Despite its name, do not expect something extremely citrusy here. Of course there are some orange zest notes, but this expression also reveals some interesting dried fruits and spices on the nose. The palate is thick, almost syrupy, with stronger orange flavours, oak and hot spices. "
