View Full Version : amrut peated and non peated

I was wondering if anyone has had these? I would imagine that the peated tastes like scotch (obviously) and the unpeated tastes like irish whiskey? I've heard good things about it.

They all taste like Scotch. They are pretty good, particularly the cask strength versions.

I've had both (and the Fusion) several times.

I LOVE the Amrut Cask Strength Peated... it's outstanding, but at $70+ I think it's a bit overpriced. Not really any better/worse than Laphroaig's 10-QC-CS, Caol Ila 12, or Ardbeg 10 - all of which are typically much cheaper. Has a nice unique taste to it I enjoyed (more fruity & earthy)

The non CS Peated is good, but not phenomenal, I would pass vs. other similarly priced Scotch in that same vein.

The standard & Fusion are good, worth trying a dram of, but I've never bought them... For such a young whisky (albeit it a good one...) I tend to pass it up. If you want good, peaty/smokey & young - Kilchoman is a better option, IMHO.

Granted, I don't think Amrut tastes as young as Kichoman - it's surprisingly rich and mature for its age.

FWIW, I think the Fusion tastes like heaven. A must have for me.
