Amrut Single Cask Peated Barley Port Pipe
Amrut // India
Peated barley from Scotland, unpeated Indian malt from Rajasthan, and well water from the distillery’s private well make up this whisky. It is matured in both bourbon barrels and in Port pipes, yielding one of Amrut's most Scotch-like releases. Amrut is India's first single malt distillery (there are four now). Note: This product is not currently available in the US.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.

"Waxy aroma with spearmint, big fruit, and loads of peat smoke. Pepsin chewing gum comes to mind. Vague hints of chocolate and clean grain in the background and there's a beautiful balance of peat and fruit over wonderfully brisk hot pepper. Water sweetens it while emphasizing the heat and the peat. It has peaty flavors, but not Islay peat and is less “Porty” than expected."
