Amrut Two Continents
Amrut is, of course, an Indian single malt distillery. This malt merits the name "Two Continents" because they distilled it in India, aged it in second fill bourbon casks and then sent it to a "secret location" in Europe (I'm guessing Estonia) for its final two years of aging. This is the second edition which was first released in fall 2011 but is still on some shelves.
Amrut Two Continents, 2nd edition, 50% abv ($100)
The nose is very light and malty with white grape juice notes. The palate is malty with sweet white wine. The finish is back to a sweeter, grape juice note.
This is a nice, very straightforward malt, dominated by sweet, malty notes, at a nice strength. I'm not sure how enhanced it is by the secret European location, but it's good stuff.
Thanks to that guy with the annoying opinions for the sample.
