This very rare First Edition of Amrut Two Continents Indian Single Malt Whisky was matured in India before the casks were moved to Europe to spend another three years maturing. Bottled in February 2009.
Amrut Two Continents starts its historic journey from the golden barley fields of India’s North West Provinces. Pastoral lands of magical beauty,irrigated by glacial melt waters from the Great Himalayas.
Following a journey of over 2,500 km to Bangalore, situated at over 3,000 feet above sea level in the heart of South India,the malt is lovingly crafted,distilled and matured. After the Angels of the Orient have feasted on their sumptuous share,they set out on their final journey. Finally shipped 9,000 km to a secret location in Europe. The Single Malt of Liquid Gold then undergoes a further maturation in the cooler climes of enchanting Europe, thus combining the exotic with enthralling !
Amrut Two Continents First Edition Tasting Notes :-
NOSE : Suet pudding – spotted dick. Some oils and banana milkshake, too
TASTE : Voluptuous delivery. A stunning meeting of juicy barley, soft fruits and delicate yet persistent spices; a light oiliness helps the more complex notes glide to all parts of the palate. While some muscovado sugars make light of any oaky encroachment; the middle ground heads dowards chocolate milkshake
Finish : Long with the slowest build up of oaks on record. The spices continue to flit and fizz and finally vanilla takes hold
