We had a fantastic tasting of some delicious Indian single malts with Mr. Prasad of Amrut Distillery on Tuesday. He has a slightly different approach to presenting the whiskies, good fun and very engaging! Obviously top whiskies too. It reminded everyone how good Amrut is. Thanks Alba Whisky @albawhisky for organising and thanks to all who came along !!!! 😊😊😊 #whisky #whiskey #instawhisky #whiskygram #indiansinglemalts #amrut #amrutdistilleries #bangalore #albawhisky #theelysian #theelysianwhiskybar #whiskytasting #melbournebars #melbourne #fitzroybars
We are absolutely delighted to present to you an exciting tasting of Indian Single Malts from the Amrut Distillery. Amrut is one of 3 single malt brands to come out of India, and they have been winning many awards in recent years. The brand has definitely helped put India on the distilling map, and now has a cult following. Join us and listen to Mr. Prasad Ganga tell us more about the long history of this company, and come try 6 expressions from this amazing distillery.  Amrut Distilleries Private Limited was established in 1948 and was founded by the late Shri J.N. Radhakrishna, or J.N.R. as he is fondly called to this day. Under his leadership, Amrut grew to become the leading supplier of "Indian Made Liquor" (IML). After the untimely demise of J.N.R in 1976, the business was taken over by his son Shri Neelakanta Rao, which brought Amrut to become a multi-national brand, recognised for its superlative quality and transparent practices in the IML Industry. In the 1960's Amrut starts to venture into rum distillation, followed by distillation of brandies in the 70's. And finally Amrut also began to venture into the distillation of malts in the 1980's. But it was not only until 2004 when Amrut Single Malt was launched. The brand is now in over 44 countries across the world.  The whiskies that will be on tasting are: 1) Amrut Fusion, 50% 2) Amrut Naarangi, 50% 3) Amrut Madeira Cask, 50% 4) Amrut Intermediate Sherry, 57.1% 5) Amrut Portonova, 62.1% 6) Amrut Single Cask (Rye Cask), 60%  When: Tuesday, 27th of August 2019 Time: 6.15pm - 7.30pm Price: $48 per person (includes booking fee) Link on Bio  Spaces are extremely limited, so don't miss out and grab your tickets now !  #whisky #whiskey #instawhisky #whiskygram #singlemalts #indiansinglemalts #amrut #amrutdistilleries #albawhisky #theelysian #theelysianwhiskybar #whiskytasting #melbournebars #fitzroybars

Excellent Winter warmer! πŸ₯ƒπŸ”₯ #repost @theelysianwhiskybar • • • • • Kilchoman for Dram Full Australia Single Cask Rum Finish, 2011/2019, 50ppm, 241 bottles, 56.2%. Matured in an ex-bourbon cask for 7 years before being finished in Jamaican rum cask for 10 months.  Nose is quite sweet. There is a lovely fruity and floral character. Quite a good amount of peatiness on the nose too. After the fruits comes some cinnamon and vanilla notes. On the palate, it is quite tarry. The 50ppm really shows. Fruity yet peaty and with plenty of minerality. Salty, nutty, medium sweetness. Really balanced and very very easy to drink.

Elements of Islay Lp9, 1998 vintage of Laphroaig fully matured in PX Sherry Cask, 20yo, 54.3%. The nose is rich. Lots of dried fruits and brown sugar, and a touch of wood varnish. Nose is a bit shy, but the palate... Wow! You get grapefruit peel, tropical fruits, fruits on the undertone and sherry spices on the top. The whisky really coats the palate. Juicy, rich, chewy, full. Plenty of plums and dates, and elegant smoke. Long finish. What a great whisky!  #whisky #whiskey #instawhisky #whiskygram #elementsofislay #laphroaig #sherry #sherrycask #albawhisky #theelysian #theelysianwhiskybar #melbournebars #melbournewhiskybars #fitzroybars

Kilchoman 100% Islay 8th Edition, 50%. A combination of 23 bourbon barrels and 7 Oloroso Sherry casks, producing 12,000 bottles.  Sweet peat on the nose. There's a touch nuttiness, sweet vanilla and a little herbal. Palate is sweet, malty, nutty. Gentle smoke coats the palate. Then comes the caramel, sugar coated toasted peanuts, sandalwood, chewy. Salty and long. Seems to get better with every batch! Great whisky! πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’― #whisky #whiskey #instawhisky #whiskygram #kilchoman #islay #theelysian #theelysianwhiskybar #albawhisky #melbournewhiskybars #melbournebars #fitzroybars
