    Amrut Indian Whiskey

    Amrut has hit the states.

    I received notice today that it is available in NYC. They have the Peated CS Single Malt, Fusion, and regular Single Malt versions.

    Tell us more. Inquiring palates want to know
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.

    Re: Amrut Indian Whiskey

    Here's a Luxist piece from Feb 25th.

    "Just prior to its U.S. entry, noted whisky writer Jim Murray
    rated Amrut Fusion "third best whisky in the world in his 2010
    "Whisky Bible," rating it 97. The rating stunned the whisky
    establishment, especially in Scotland.

    Prices range from $45.00 for the Single-Malt to $72.00
    for the Peated Cask Strength.

    Amrut's distributor says the initial foray will be New York,
    New Jersey, Illinois and Connecticut and Massachusetts.
    Park Ave. Liquor and Astor Wines & Spirits are among the
    retailers taking pre-orders. In Boston, it's Federal Wine &
    Spirits. In Chicago, it's Binny's. The initial shipment will be
    900 cases. But by the end of the year, Amrut expects to
    have 3000 cases circulating. It will go into Florida, Texas
    and California by year-end."

    John Hansell mentioned them on March 29th.

    Amrut website lists the Single Malt variants.

    One of the highest rated whiskys for the same price as some of the mid shelf scotches is one of those bang for the buck bottles you just gotta have. I'm on my way to Florida.......

    Re: Amrut Indian Whiskey

    I was fortunate to finish off a private-label bottling of the Amrut single malt at cask strength at a bar in Tokyo last week. I'm not a Scotch drinker, and I was very impressed. I'll hunt down the Fusion at Julio's when it comes out.

    Re: Amrut Indian Whiskey

    I'll be checking with Binny's here in Chicago tomorrow. It's kind of hard for me to get my head around the notion of great whisky coming from India, but after all that I've read I can't wait to pick up a bottle.

    I've heard good things about Amrut but haven't had a chance to try it.

    Sorry,

    I found it at Astor Wines in NYC.

    (I am in no way affiliated with this retailer, simply posting the location as a public service.)

    Re: Amrut Indian Whiskey

    I tried most of them at last year's WFNYC and the Fusion stood head and shoulders above the other offerings.

    I bought the Fusion here, it is very good and I like the proof. Big biscuity and Islay-like flavours.
