Review #1220 – Amrut 7yr Single Cask #4133

Review #1220 | India Review #46 – Amrut 7yr Single Cask #4133

The Schtick: This is a young single cask of Amrut spirit that was bottled at cask strength after aging for 7 years, entirely in an oloroso cask.


Distiller: Amrut

Bottler: Amrut

Selection: N/A

ABV: 60% ABV

Age: 7 Years


Nose: Rich nutty toffee, honey and figs. Sweet cream, light oak, faint must, some tobacco.

Taste: Sweet and rich mouth feel. Medium thickness. Honey, toffee, rich syrupy fruits. A bit of heat, but really well behaved for the proof. Apples, blackberry, figs, currant and cherry. Syrupy, musty pipe tobacco.

Finish: Short, but not too hot. A bit more oak here, lightly musty. The syrupy fruits continue.

Overall: Pretty great stuff compared to pretty much all of the Amrut I’ve had at the time of this tasting. The sherry notes and the apparent age despite its actual youth is impressive and delicious. Nice work, Amrut.

Thanks for reading!

    Could this be a sourced Scotch? I always thought the climate in India was so hot that distillate can’t be matured for long periods of time. Some quick googling I found some other Amrut 7 year Scotches but for around $229. Too rich for me for a 7 year old Scotch. Thanks for this review. I don’t think I’ll be enjoying anymore Amrut. Seems tasty but rather pricey.

      It’s definitely not sourced – it’s an Indian whiskey made entirely in India which is pretty cool, but their more desirable offerings are certainly crazy expensive. I slowly try one or two a year, but agree that I generally don’t choose to buy it. Too many other things to spend money on.
