Price:
$$ A bargain for such an impressive malt

amrut-fusion-120Its exciting to see distilleries from other countries producing great malt whiskies and India's Amrut certainly deserves accolades for Fusion, as well as several other of its single malt products.

Indian malt from Punjab and Rajasthan and peated malt from Scotland are mashed, distilled separately.  They are then matured separately in American Oak barrels until their peak at somewhere less than 4 years. Finally the peated and unpeated spirits are combined to be finished in ex-bourbon barrels for another 3 to 6 months. Accelerated maturation in India due to altitude and hot weather produce a rich spirit that belies its young age.

SUGGESTED CHOCOLATE PAIRING

Chuao - Dark Grignottine (now called Citrus Crunch)

Dark chocolate is a must with this pairing. This fruit forward malt demands a confection that will complement but not compete and dark grignottine fits the bill perfectly.  The caramelized orange peel lends just the right fruity goodness without being too sweet while the crunchiness of the almonds and pistachio slivers provide a great textural counterpoint to the silkiness of this dram.  (Click here to purchase bonbons)

SUGGESTED CIGAR PAIRING

Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 Churchill

 

The spice and chocolate notes of Fusion are captured and amplified by this cigar.  Rich earthy notes of oak & almond roll off the tongue then transition to deeper flavors of dark roasted expresso and chocolate. Click here to purchase cigar.
