Amrut Intermediate Sherry (Batch 1 and 3 combined into a single review). A lot of people rave about this and few people do not rate it. So let’s see. I think it’s a non-chill filtration with no added colour.

It’s a lovely sherry, cola, mint, chocolate and that trademark Amrut fruitiness on the nose. Enticing and changes are noticeable over time. It’s surprisingly drinkable neat (57% abv). It’s a lovely combination of a sherry and bourbon finished whisky. Sweet, sherry, chocolate, Amrut fruit and a touch of cola. The mint seems to get lost. Swims well. Nice medium finish with a medium amount of oak. However throughout the tasting experience you still get the spirity youth of Amrut coming through which detracts a little from the overall experience (note some of our panel found this youthful distraction more severe than others)

So would I recommend for the price. It’s a maybe. It’s expensive but nice – if you can happily ignore the spirty esters of youth.

Do you feel good after a few drams? Mmmm again it’s kinda of a neutral effect. Maybe one to wind down the day with.

This has not been my experience with my bottle. It's a fantastic dram. But we could both taste from the same batch and come to opposite conclusions so I respect your views.

Yea, this one can divide people we found. I'm with Ralfy (Ralfystuff)on this one. It's nice but very young and pricey.

No doubt the spiritcask interaction is very fast in Bangalore. And the distillate is of very high quality and the blending too. But what's missing for me is the depth of maturation that time brings.

Some of our panel (Cork Whisky Society) would have scored it even lower (mid seventies) and some a few points higher.
