For this reason most of the Amrut single malts are released at around 4 years old - which taste wise are akin to much older whiskies from cooler countries, such as Scotland or Ireland. John Hansell, editor of American magazine Whisky Advocate, wrote that "India's Amrut distillery changed the way many think of Indian whisky – that it was, in the past, just cheap Scotch whisky blended with who knows what and sold as Indian whisky. Amrut can boast an exciting range of peated and un-peated malts, single cask maturations and variety of wood finishes. As much as fifteen percent abv is lost every year to the angel’s share, thus it is unwise to mature it for much more than a few years, lest the product drops below forty percent abv and ceases to be whisky.

In the event of any safety concerns or for any other information about a product please carefully read any instructions provided on the label or packaging and contact the manufacturer. The fraction lost to evaporation during ageing, known as the angels' share, is also higher in India, at 11–12% per year, than in Scotland, where the annual evaporative loss is about 2%. High Spirits; Amrut Fusion is the only Indian brand to find global acceptance in the rarefied world of single malt whiskies". The climate in India has a real influence on the shape of the product and it is said that 15% is lost each year during maturation, which means that we are unlikely to ever see an Amrut expression beyond 7 or 8 years old.The smoky peat tastes like barbecued trout and drifts in and out, making smoke rings round the sweet, malty heart. Amrut Distilleries conducted blind tests of their single malt whisky in Scotland, where most consumers said they liked the drink and compared it to Speyside single malts. Due to its location, Amrut enjoys an accelerated maturation of its whiskies (3-4 times that of Scotland) however the Angel’s share can be 15% per year.

The Second Edition used second-fill Bourbon casks and was bottled at 50% abv, while the First Edition was matured in ex-grain casks and bottled 46% abv.

Nose: Almost smells like plain white grape juice, barely getting any alcohol off of it and it is close enough that it is nearly going up my nostrils. Distilled in the 'plant capital' of Bangalore, each unit is matured in American Oak Barrels and filtered straight into the bottles to sustain its natural flavour and colour. Jagdale felt that "the taste profiles were much better, almost matching some of the 12-year-old [Scotch] whiskies". The company discovered that hot weather makes whisky mature faster in India than it does in Europe or the United States. With a name that translates as 'thrice', Triparva showcases the experimental zeal of the Bangalore-based Amrut.
