  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 76 points Specialist

    In no way a great whisky.

    Over exposed and extreme.... I like extreme, so a few points scored. The rest is for ompf and spice attack.
    • Nose
      Quite dark in color.

      Heavy sherry notes, wet and slightly sulphoric wood.

      Hint of oranges. Some more crisp red berry notes emerging over time.

      Alc is a bit "in your face" but then again it is 57,1% however it contributes towards a feeling of a volatile liquid.
    • Taste
      Hot, peppery spice,

      Buckets of thick bitter prune juice.

      Burnt liqorice.

      These two notes actually over power whatever else there may be.
    • Finish
      Medium lenght.

      Starting of on the burnt substance feeling that is getting rather unpleasant.

      Ends on a slightly better dark bitter chocolate note.

  4. EvilAFI scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Rich sherry, citrus, wet wood, sweet and inviting, vanilla and spices join the palate, the oak here has a nice bite. Amrut signature malt comes through strong in the finish.
    Great value here.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    A grandiose dram, a lot of wood, dry sherry, somehow also clear, filigree and deep. Class. In comparison to the good Batch 39, one has to say that this one is a bit more canny, but also clearer and more direct and aromatically deeper. Just a little better
    • Nose
      Menthol, spearmint, extreme barrel notes, but delicious, with time more sherry sweetness, and you have to give it a little time at the beginning. Overall a lot of highly interesting and exciting barrel but also a little sweet over time. Significantly more profiled and clearer than Batch 39, which here has more sweetness and a little dampened clogged effect.
    • Taste
      old notes of wood, it tastes more like 30 years+, plus spiciness, the sherry is clear, but rather dry nutty, a light sweetness in the background rounds it all off pleasantly. No sign of alcohol.
    • Finish
      The finish offers dry sherry notes, a lot of aromatic wood, mint, rather tart, but not only, a fine sweetness carries the construction for a long time.

  6. Nosingbär scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The whisky initially presented itself to me as very short-matured and with a strong alcoholic pungency. The aromas that I still find in the nose disappear in the taste. Cask strength sherry bombs do fit my profile with favorite examples like Aberlour A' Bunadh or the Edradour Single Casks, but this one isn't well rounded, nor is there an interesting load of flavors to transport through the alcohol. When I've almost given up, after about 60 minutes, it becomes even rounder and more mature. The bourbon cask binds itself in more and the alcoholic sharpness largely disappears. It remains a pleasant, if so-so, experience. 83/100.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Anyway, it smells very young. Sherry flavors are moderate and fruity, definitely not first fill, but not many refills either. I have the feeling that the raw brandy smells mainly of pear behind the sherry aromas. The pear comes to light when you push apricot, raisins, prunes and chocolate to the side with sherry aromas. Honey and liquorice are added later.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Despite dilution, it is still very strong, especially sweet and sour, with a bitter spiciness. Orange peel. With more time it becomes sweeter, it opens up. Caramel is added, but the basic tenor remains bitter green tea.
    • Finish
      81 81
      In the spicy, medium-length finish, it leaves walnut shells and a memory of dried fruit, as well as a little vanilla.

    Combined rating between two whisky brothers:

    We're not fully delighted with this whisky. Spicy and bitter tastes overlay all other, leaving it monotonously dry and alcoholic.

  9. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very sherry-dominated nose, practically indistinguishable from a Scot. Quite alcoholic without water. Not a bad, but very barrel-heavy and therefore exchangeable whisky

  10. Deloti scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Harsh on the palate definitely on the alcoholic side and a good amount of solvent notes. After all it's not as bad as it started. It opens its citrus notes, mild sherry, wood, caramel, bitter chocolate.

  12. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    He doesn't really want to please me. The alcohol is partly hot and pungent. The sherry notes are there of course, but also drift off to citrus notes. The oak doesn't look particularly elegant either.
    Nothing for me. I don't need that again.

    Sample

    All the rage for a while back in the day. I think I had a later batch before and had luke warm enthusiasm. Let’s check the OG
    • Nose
      76 76
      Spicy wood. Cedar, and I swear there are some Indian spices in there. It’s... different. Coriander? Chalky candy. Artificial.
    • Taste
      76 76
      It tastes like fun dip. Apologies if you don’t know what that is; it’s cheap powdered artificial candy. Artificial cherry, fresh wood, sweet.
    • Finish
      75 75
      Sweet, artificial powdered candy. Good memories, but sometimes things are better as a memory... spicy oak, forced. Big in your face flavours, but lacks elegance. Very modern.

  15. Xstream scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Don’t get the high ratings. Way better, not NAS, whiskies available for this price.

    I like the spice and the sherry but that's pretty much the only.thing it offers. A bit unbalanced, aggressive.and watery.

  16. Aldawg77 scored this whisky 86 points Newbie

    When I first opened it I really didn't like. Way too much ethanol coming off it, and this was overpowering. Also very hot on the palette.

    It needs some time with air in the bottle (at least a neck poor or slightly more). However surprisingly over time the hidden beauty comes out. I found that with water (or even some ice) interesting smells and flavors come to the surface. A very nice stewed pineapple odor, and taste. Light floral notes, and ripe fruits.

    Towards the end of the bottle I really found a true appreciation in the metamorphosis that takes place over time, with this whisky and some of the unique elements that present themselves. It takes patience though.

    Another good but boring sherry whisky
    • Nose
      88 88
      Strong sherry nose - prunes, cherry, berries jam, balance with dusty agarwood, and garam masala. Milk biscuit, creamy milk chocolate. After a sip, earthy notes, tabacco, burnt cinnamon, wet wood. With water, more agarwood! Overall quite aromatic nose. but sometimes the oak will overpower the entire nose and make it unbalance.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very dense berries, sour cherry, wet oak, some sweetness in the middle, finish with tons of oak bitterness. With water, same notes with hint of curry powder?
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long, oak bitterness.

  19. Joschbert scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Quite a deterrent without water. With patience and water, he shows idiosyncratic corners and edges. Interesting, but somehow confused.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Undiluted, I first find an irritating mineral note, paint and a lot of sulfur. Much more pleasant with water. Orange and clear sherry.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Another charge of sulfur. The funny mineral note from the aroma on the palate, even with water is not pleasant. Is this part of the character of the distiller? The alcohol is very present. In addition, some sharpness, reminiscent of pepper, and bitter oak. A little vanilla.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Pretty dry sherry notes. Black pepper. Bitter oak stays on the palate for a long time.

  20. Whisky.Hedonist.MY scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Heavy in sour plum and prunes, old and dusty books in a dusty room. Dried fruit sweetness, Chinese traditional oinment, milk chocolate, biscuits. After some time, strong Chinese herbs (Dong Guai), or some root based plant. The Spanish oak is very prominent, some reminiscent of the old, good sherry casks.
    • Taste
      Sweet, strawberry jam, lots of dried fruits. Thick and dense. Full bodied. Vanilla.
    • Finish
      Long, biscuity, dried fruits again. Quite dry as well.

  21. dramspotter scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Wonderfully strong sherry with an orangey/Cointreau tang in the mouth. For something only in a sherry cask for a period between other woods it has oodles of taste. Very strong sulphur note makes it quite a standout.

    The thing that is wrong is the name: I know the sherry is intermediate to the other maturations but it does not exactly scream at you from the shelves with a name like that.

    Peatbogger has got this spot on. In no way a great whisky, and I struggle to even call it a good one. I don't like slightly overwooded cognac, I like whisky, if you like cognac you should buy this because that is what the profile is, it doesn't taste like whisky. 
    I have tried a few of the Amrut 'whiskies' and have now decided that they are not to my taste, they are overly spicey, hot, and cognacy..... they lack class, finesse and are just not that good.

    Massively overrated. I wonder why certain people think so highly of them....Could be a matter of taste...but when people call what I consider overt dryness and wood-overdose 'star anise' you have to wonder.... I dunno. Perhaps just a matter of taste.This is a heady whisky imitation made in India but cunningly marketed as an above premium product.

    The marketting department of Amrut are the real craftsmen in this operation in my opinion. I'll finish the bottle.....but it's not much of joy.

    So this is a bit problematic. Without dilution, drinking is quite uncalled, after dilution, my taste profile is completely caught by my heart. But objectively, it's definitely above average
    • Nose
      Without water - Very pronounced sherry tones, nuts, oakness, old skin, chocolate cherry, dried fruit, light alcohol - massacre With water - Significant dubiousness, hazelnuts and a bit of spiciness get to the forefront
    • Taste
      Without water - very strong alcohol, again sherry, caramel, caramelized red orange, very creamy With water - still cherished alcohol, sherry disappears, more caramel, cocoa, and some fruity tones in the background.
    • Finish
      Without water - again, it is primarily alcoholic with chocolate and woodiness With water - creamy, bitter chocolate, a little spice

  32. Gaija scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Can't say it's bad, far from it, but the varnish is a bit dominating for me. Maybe with a more aerated sample and more time I'd get another experience.
    • Nose
      Quite a lot of varnish, sadly ... which has become very typical with these sherried offerings matured under exotic latitudes. But then arrives a very nice citrusy side. Clearly orange is quite dominating, some bittersweet coug syrup as well.
    • Taste
      Orange it is, with bitter tangerines, and milk chocolate. Nice structure, it's nervous and dynamic but not overbearing, and drinks quite well for its proof. 
    • Finish
      Long, citrusy, spciy, not too much wood, which is nice !

    It is a nice and spicy sheried whisky but if you're sensitieve for sulfur beware...It is a whisky with more layers but there is sulfur (at least this batch, but because it's a sample I don't know what batch this is... Probably 2015/2016 botle) and once I noticed it I could not get arround it anymore... Probably my problem but if you know you have it too walk arround this one...

    Wow, that's a cool bottling! After the ingenious Amrut Fusion, still an increase .... so slowly I am becoming a huge Amrut fan. Good for water. With 57.1% vol he has enough power to be diluted a bit. So it will in my opinion a bit rounder and opens more.
    • Nose
      Intense nose, sherry, cherries, oranges, liquorice, spicy, a slight nuttiness comes through. Overall, a very harmonious nose. With water, a beautiful vanilla and lemon comes to light.
    • Taste
      Strong start with a huge sweet! A huge basket full of fruit, the mouth water is flowing smoothly. Creamy mouthfeel, tyish amrut licorice, honey, anise, spice, cinnamon.

    Serge says:

    Amrut 'Intermediate Sherry Matured' (57.1%, OB, 2010)
    This one was first matured in bourbon and new oak, then in sherry, then
    in bourbon again. Interesting, especially the way the distillery
    ‘treated’ the sherry casks.They ordered
    casks from Spain but instead of letting the suppliers burn sulphur into
    them – which I believe is the normal procedure – they shipped cases of
    Amrut CS to Spain and asked the Spaniards to fill each butt with some
    whisky and then roll them, so that the distillate would protect the wood
    from bacteria and mould during transportation from Jerez to Madras and
    then Bangalore.




    What’s funny is that with my friend and winemaker Olivier, who does it
    with some of his own wine casks, we had already told several Scots that
    they should do that with their own spirits, so that they could avoid the
    dreadful sulphury notes. Not sure they ever followed our advices, as
    it’s a very expensive method! But let’s try the result now… Colour: deep
    gold. Nose: it’s sherried but not that much. Notes of cherries,
    raspberry, kirsch, a little orange liqueur, rosehip tea... Maybe old
    roses as well. All that is very clean, fragrant... Notes of raspberry
    ganache. With water: more spices from the wood, ginger and lemon balm.
    The oak was quite active here. Mouth (neat): rich and creamy, very
    appealing, sweet, more aromatic than the “average” sherried malt. Notes
    of Turkish delights, rose water, orange marmalade... Very pleasant
    spiciness (star anise, cinnamon). Again, it's very clean, almost a
    little zesty. With water: very nice citrusy notes and many spices. Most
    unusual but perfect. Liquorice, pepper, ginger and marmalade. Finish:
    long, on the same notes, with a faint saltiness and maybe a little peat.
    Comments: this new style is impressively to my liking. Perfect first
    fill sherry without any cloying elements, and no single traces of burnt
    matches/rubber whatsoever. SGP:553 - 91 points.

    Normally, sherry bombs are the whiskys that find the least thanks to my eyes. Case of taste. I must admit that this one is excellent, I find it different from the classic Scottish sherry. A great success.
    Batch 8.
    Rating review from 90 to 89 and comment translated into French.
    • Nose
      It's powerful, but not aggressive either .. The 57.1% still feel. We clearly feel the Sherry but it is not a Sherry bomb either. In bulk, cherries, Kirsch, red fruit, green tea, other more floral notes (roses?). We also feel the influence of the bourbon cask via vanilla notes. It is well balanced, consistent. I love.
    • Taste
      Alcohol is pretty well integrated. It's quite sweet, with a rather heavy and oily body. The texture makes me think of a young Mortlach. A nice attack, aromatic, on stewed cherries. A little vanilla and oak come nicely to balance the sometimes too tannic side brought by the Sherry. It is relatively complex but it is especially very pleasant (it is necessary to retain it!).
    • Finish
      Long, on the sweet notes of sherry. Always cherry (decidedly), bitter orange and some malty hints.

    I am not convinced by this one.
    • Nose
      Sweet, sugary with vanilla, sugar cane, various fruit jams - apricot, strawberry, and a bit of earthiness.
    • Taste
      Light body, more of the notes plus some nuts and mushrooms. Tons of spices with cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium length, wood spices dominate, a bit of bitterness.

    Colour : Deep Gold.

    Nose: Sweet Molasses, Sugar , Some Turkish Delight. No Balsamic at all on this one, very nice clear sherry influence. Some Plums, Newly cut grass and hints of ripe oranges, and exotic fruits, i cant put my finger on. Lovely! Lovely! But, not the ‘usual’ sherry notes you would expect.

    Palate: Sweet, Rounded and Fruity. Not much dried fruit here, but rather spicy, and a bit lemony, if you can describe it like that. the Turkish delight form the nose pays a visit here as well. Very complex stuff. and again, not your everyday ‘sherry’. but well made.

    Finish : Long, fruity and spicy. Do i sense wee peat smoke here?

    Bottom line : This is not your everyday sherried whisky. The unusual maturation selection made by amrut created a whisky that is more amrut, than sherry. it’s rich, complex, and very interesting, and i like this one quite a bit. In my opinion it’s better than the Kadambham from the lovely nose to palate and finish. It’s really one of the best Amruts i’ve had. It’s true the peat is somehow lost in all this sherry thing, so don’t look for it here, but it’s an ace. No doubt. Price wise, this one is also not cheap at almost 70 GBP, but i think it’s worth getting. It’s quite unique.

    • Nose
      A full, dense scent makes it warm. Chocolate, lots of cinnamon, orange jam, leather. Sweetly sweet. With water creams, softens and drips. (92 b)
    • Taste
      Full, strong, dry and warm taste. With water, we are still developing, rebuilding, then there comes a brutal flow of sweet spice (paradise) that has long faded away. (90 b)

    from http://www.drankgigant.nl/sterke-drank/whisky/amrut-intermediate-sherry-matured.html

      Sweet and round with a fruity and spicy character comprising among other diverse number of nuts like almonds and dates, dark chocolate, tobacco and flowers.

      Medium to long finish with fruity and spicy notes

    This half-sherried Amrut is a very successful experiment. The smoothness of the sherry is amazing and the bourbon oak adds compexity with vanilla and spices.
    • Nose
      Light sherry notes, locum or raspberry macaroons rather than the usual figs and dried fruits. Blueberries. Hints of Mandarine Napoleon as well. Spiced up by some exotic notes of ginger and flowers. Vanilla cake. A very sensual type of sherry, which in a way reminds me of Glenmorangie Sonnalta.
    • Taste
      Rich and fruity, sweet and again more candied and feminine than other sherry bottlings. Oranges, grapes and cherries. Plum jam. Locum again (rosewater). A whole array of spices (cinnamon, light pepper, anise). A little leather and a faint oaky touch as well.
    • Finish
      Medium long, very fruity with a gentle zesty bitterness.

  66. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Aged in bourbon casks, then sherry casks, then finished in bourbon
    casks. An interesting (and original?) approach, but is it worth all the
    effort? I think so. The sherry notes are clean, not cloying, and there’s
    plenty of oak resin on the palate for texture, and to balance the
    sherry’s sweetness. Liqueur-ish fruit (orange, raspberry, cherry,
    caramelized peach), along with a good peppering of dried spice (vanilla,
    ginger, cinnamon, anise). Distinctive resin on the finish props up the
    rest of the flavors.

  69. PierreDH scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    Sample of 3cl. Bottle opened for 1 month.
    • Nose
      Super Sherry! Crushed cherries, Guignolet, mocha, brown sugar. A little acidity brought by a hint of vinegar of Xeres. Soya sauce. On a creamy side too. All, brings very delicately by this great strong 57.1%!
    • Taste
      Very powerful but of a good amplitude. Alcohol is once again very well integrated. Roundness almost ... With water, more doubts. Opulence and generosity.
    • Finish
      Longueeee! Creamy and chocolatee. Tiramisu, yum! Mocha, currants. Fine bitterness as a conclusion. With water, the creamy side comes out and the final bitterness gives way to a nice fruity and a hint of almond. When Maraschino meets the Ameretto in sum!

  70. Lafroy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Very well balanced with notes of glue and varnish, young sherry, bourbon sweetness and sweet smoke. Strong medicinal and dental notes are noticeable
    • Taste
      It starts with synthetic sweetness similar to dental mouthwash, cherries, chili, white pepper, spiciness and hot sensation in throat. It´s creamy, strong, hot and sweet.
    • Finish
      Long, very complex, sweet, very dental and medicinal
