As India is too tropical a climate for peat to develop, this expression is made using peated Scottish barley, from Bairds Malting near Inverness, distilled and matured in ex-Bourbon casks at Amrut Distillery in Bangalore. The new 46% Amruts are a very different proposition to the pleasant but unexciting original release. At the higher strength this 24ppm peated effort fairly fizzes along the tastebuds. This is excellent - hugely improved stuff from a distillery coming along in leaps and bounds.
