Whisky Reviews for Amrut Intermediate

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.28 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Sherry fresh and gourmet nose (milk chocolate, cream ...), with a late touch of caramel and greenery. In the mouth, it is hot and intense with spices. Alcohol is very well integrated. The finish is subtly vinous with cooked fruit. The water releases the wood on the nose, which even dominates rather the whole, while in the mouth it is the spices that are multiplied, but there is always enough honey to compensate their ardor.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

  3. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    tasted it blind, really difficult to put my finger on what distillery but was stuck in Scotland. My first thoughts were Benromach 10 CS but does not contains the same rubbery smoke or Mezcal notes as the fantastic Benromach. This was much sweeter, probably PX-casks. Maybe a singel cask Benriach? Nope an Amrut intermediate!

    • Nose
      Spicy chocolate, dry wood, mixed spices, slightly coffee and some bread. After water more herbs appear, I am thinking cumin.
    • Taste
      Powerful and intense arrival with some warm smoke and a waxy texture that goes into the development with spicy chocolate, chili pepper, dates, raisins and licorice. Water brings down the intensity of the arrival but the flavor profile stays intact. 
    • Finish
      The finish is warm and spicy, soft peat smoke, mixed spice and citrus. Water brings black pepper and lemon zest.
