97 Points and World’s Third Best Whisky 2010 by Jim Murray, Whisky Bible
Amrut Fusion Single Malt Whisky gets its name from the fact that it uses two barleys: Indian and Scottish – with the latter being peated. It comes from Amrut Distilleries, the Bangalore-based company which introduced the first single malt from India to the UK in 2004.
97 Points Jim Murray - Amrut Fusion has to be one of the great whiskies found anywhere in the word this year. The fact that it is Indian? Irrelevant, from distillation to maturation this is a genius whisky from whichever continent. It is one of those which command a big mouthful, a chair with a headrest … and silence. You will chew for seemingly hours and never quite get to the bottom of its mystical complexity. It is massive whisky, but its genius is that you get the feeling that there is some almost invisible element keeping the malt together so the proportions are never less than perfect.
