amrut greedy angels 8
A bottling to celebrate the 60th birthday of Amrut's Chairman, Mr. Neel Jagdale. Amrut rarely age their whiskies for longer than four years. This represents some of the distillery's oldest stocks - a tricky undertaking given the greedy nature of India's angels where evaporation rates are around 10-15% annually, as opposed to 2% in a cooler climate such as Scotland. Apart from the dramatic loss (over 250 litres disappeared in this experiment), extended ageing means there's a risk that the spirit will breach a critical point beyond which it tastes overly woody. Produced from unpeated Indian barley & Scottish peated barley, 1350 bottles are on offer worldwide.
