In The Whisky Bible 2010, leading whisky expert, Jim Murray awarded Amrut Fusion Single Malt Whisky the title of World's Third Best Whisky. Murray said Fusion has to be one of the great whiskies found anywhere in the world this year. Admitting his No 3 choice could come as a surprise to some people, he said: The fact that it is Indian? Irrelevant, from distillation to maturation this is a genius whisky from whichever continent.
