Amrut Spectrum 004 is a single malt whiskey from India that has been making waves in the international whiskey market. Amrut Spectrum 004 is also a limited edition single malt launched for Rs. 12,999. In this article, we will be reviewing the Amrut Spectrum 004. We will explore its flavour profile and discuss its unique characteristics that make it stand out among other whiskeys.
We have received the Spectrum 004 in a unique launch package and stands out as the world’s first single malt whisky aged in a multi-wood barrel. Unlike traditional single malt whiskies that are matured in casks made from a single type of oak, Spectrum was matured in a barrel made from staves of four different types of oak, earning it the name “004”.
Adding to the exclusivity of Spectrum is its limited release, with only 6600 bottles produced. Out of these, only 600 will be available in Bengaluru, with the remaining 6000 bottles set for sale across Europe, the USA, and the Asia-Pacific region. This rare availability only enhances the prestige of this one-of-a-kind single malt whisky.
Spectrum underwent a unique two-step maturation process. First, the new make spirit was matured in an ex-bourbon cask, then the aged spirit was transferred to a Spectrum cask, made from a combination of different types of oak: new American oak with char level 3, lightly toasted new French limousine oak, ex-oloroso sherry cask staves, and ex-PX sherry cask staves. This carefully crafted process results in a complex and layered whisky with a depth of flavour like no other.
We are thrilled with the recent experimentation and innovation in Indian whisky-making, and it is exciting to see brands like Amrut pushing the boundaries of what is possible. This marks an important moment in the industry, where there is a growing need for more ambitious and innovative brands to emerge. We believe that this will lead to a vibrant and diverse landscape of exceptional Indian whiskies, one that truly showcases the passion, creativity, and expertise of India’s distillers.
On the nose, Spectrum 004 exhibits a delicate blend of vanilla and coconut, with a subtle hint of toffee. On the palate, the whisky showcases a distinctive coconut flavour, with a bold hit of spice and a touch of sweet vanilla and toffee notes. The finish is smooth and long-lasting, with a lingering spice that lingers on the throat. This unique combination of flavours and aromas make Spectrum 004 a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
So what’s our take on Spectrum 004? We believe it’s truly unique, with a delicious blend of dried fruit, coconut, sweetness, and spiciness. It’s a prime example of the new wave of premium malts being produced in India, and with a limited edition of only 6,600 bottles, it’s definitely worth adding to your collection. Don’t miss out on this exceptional and rare whisky experience.
