Amrut Intermediate Sherry
Amrut // Bangalore, India
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.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask Typeex-bourbon / ex-sherry
"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."
