Amrut Triparva, Batch 1, 50%

Also during lockdown, as with many other fairly random bottles in my collection, I bought this one for a tasting. Triple distilled Amrut, at a decent ABV. Not generally something I would shell out a hundred bucks for, but Amrut has surprised me in the past with high quality stuff that doesn’t seem all that appealing based on the label. The Amrut Rye comes to mind.

There’s not a lot to go by on the bottle or in the Whiskybase statistics, but let’s remember that it did really well in the tasting, some two years ago.

Sniff:
Lots of crisp barley notes, some vanilla and grass too. Mango and banana, toffee, sweet pastry notes.

Sip:
The palate is similarly tropical, with pastry and vanilla. A hint of peppery dryness that dissipates a little bit after a while. Some straw and reed too.

Swallow:
The finish is slightly less fruity, and more pastry like. Lots of dough, some oak.

Another Indian whisky that punches quite a ways above its weight, I’d say. It’s massively tropical with mango and banana notes, something I would expect from bourbon, and far less from single malt whiskies. Really solid stuff!

88/100
