This Indian whisky was originally matured in either ex-bourbon casks or virgin oak casks. The whiskies then went through an intermediate maturing process in Sherry butts at Amrut’s Bangalore distillery. Amrut then transferred the whisky back into ex-bourbon casks for another round of aging.

Tasting Notes

"A layered nose of spiced Christmas fruit cake and toffee with figs and jam. The bourbon casks detonate to contain what could have been a sherry bomb. Loads of vanilla and arid oak offer a counterpoint to the juicy sherry. The finish is stretched allowing the spicy hit to dwindle into the natural caramels compliments of the ex-bourbon casks. An impressive single malt."
