    Amrut Intermediate Sherry

    Score: 93/100

    An exemplary showing of flawless sherry cask maturation. Beautiful juicy Oloroso meets exotic Indian spice in a Monsoon Wedding of epic proportions. I’m not even gonna wait till the end of this review to let you know the verdict.

    I. Love. This. Whisky.

    Seriously, I’ve said it before and I’m spouting it here again: Amrut is one of the absolute greatest, most fantabulous, untouchable distilleries on the planet. Every new release is a thing of excitement and anticipation.

    So, what is Intermediate Sherry exactly? Well…this is what Amrut have referred to as ‘sandwich maturation’. The whisky grows old (well…by Indian climate standards anyway) first in Ex-bourbon casks, then in Oloroso butts, then back into ex-bourbon. I believe brand ambassador, Ashok Chokalingam, referred to this is as a ‘sherry sandwich’ when last we met.

    So what is it that makes this one so special? This…

    Nose: Beautiful Oloroso sherry sweetness. Raw bread dough. Orange zest and cherry. Cocoa shavings. Amrut spice melange…particularly nutmeg. Wee bits of eucalyptus. Raspberry puree. Soft, crumbly sugar cookies. Bordering on the perfect olfactory experience.

    Palate: Warm melting chocolate. Orange (and maybe lemon) notes. Spicy and sweet cherry/raspberry juiciness. Again…a slight minty tang. So much more going on here that I simply struggle to unravel it all, but man…what an exceptionally delicious and zesty linger. Wow.

    One of the absolute highlights of the Amrut range.

    Buy Amrut. Support this distillery.
