Indian Whisky

Amrut - Intermediate Sherry

4.6

750 ml
  • Amrut is probably the best known Indian whisky brand outside India, and certainly among the most highly regarded. The brand has been around since 1948 but it’s only in the last 20 years or so that they’ve been making “serious” single malt expressions, and it wasn’t until 2009 that they made their way Stateside. Since then, Amrut has gained a reputation as arguably the essential introduction to Indian whisky.


    Amrut Intermediate Sherry Indian Single Malt Whisky is first aged in ex-bourbon barrels before being transferred to an “intermediate” sherry cask, where it rests briefly before being placed back in ex-bourbon barrels to finish its aging.


    This innovative new sandwiching technique allows the sherry flavors to “burn in” as the whisky continues to age in the ex-bourbon casks, and imparts a beautiful nose unto the whisky filled with aromas of port, candied cherries, vanilla and strawberry jam. The palate is equally as enthralling, with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg mingling with orange peel and anise before leading to a long, dry and oaky finish.

  • Palate

    Cracking delivery and entirely unique in form. The structure is decidedly oak-based, but acts as no more than a skeleton from which the juicy sultana and spices drape. Salivating, too, as the barley kicks in powerfully. But the liquorice-orangey-honeycomb bourbon theme quietly shapes the flavor profile; the spices pulse and glow.

  • Finish

    Quite a chunk of natural caramel quietens the more exuberant characteristics; long and elegant.

  • Nose

    Instead of the usual biscuit aroma, we now get moist cake. And my word: is it fruity and spicy!! Love the freshly waxed oak floor, too. Brain-explodingly complex and multi-layered with one of the most intriguing sherry-style-bourbon-style marriages on the market
