Experience the best of both worlds with this remarkable single malt whiskey from Amrut, the premier distillery in India. Fusion is made with barley grown in India, the homeland of Amrut Distillery, as well as peated barley all the way from Scotland. Barley and fruity aromas lead the way while gentle peat, coffee, dark chocolate and a hint of fruitiness all mingle and mix through the palate.
Heavy, thickly oaked and complex: some curious barley-sugar notes here shrouded in soft smoke. Big, but seductively gentle too.
The delivery, though controlled at first, is massive! Then more like con-fusion as that smoke on the nose turns into warming, full blown peat, but it far from gets its own way as a vague sherry trifle note (curious, seeing how there are no sherry butts involved) – the custard presumably is oaky vanilla – hammers home that barley – fruitiness to make for a bit of a free-for-all, but for extra food measure the flavours develop into a really intense chocolate fudge middle which absolute resonates through the palate.
A slight struggle here as the mouthfeel gets a bit puffy here with the dry peat and oak, enough molasses sweetness to see the malt through to a satisfying end though. Above all the spices, rather than lying down and accepting their fate, rise up and usher this extraordinary whisky to its exit.
