The Intermediate Sherry is another outstanding limited edition whisky from the now famous Amrut whisky distillery in India.
The Intermediate Sherry, like most Scotch whiskies, begins and ends its maturation process in bourbon casks, however, it goes from bourbon casks to sherry casks, and back to bourbon to complete its maturation. This gives it that distinctive flavor that we associate with scotch but sweetened and softened by the sherry influence.
"It is long and laden with a variety of tropical fruit flavors. There is a little spice and a little peat smoke, but the overall impression is lingering sweetness"
Another brilliant limited edition whisky from Amrut, this is a port version of Amrut’s Intermediate Sherry.
Portonova is matured first in a combination of new american oak and ex-bourbon barrels, then moved to refill port pipes and then back into ex-bourbon casks.
"A blackcurrant and wispy, smoky nose gives way to an intense and bittersweet mix of chili, blackcurrant, oak, damson, dark chocolate, and peat. Astounding" (Dominic Roskrow)
Amrut Two Continents starts its historic journey from the golden barley fields of India's North West Provinces, pastoral lands of magical beauty, irrigated by glacial melt waters from the Great Himalayas.
Following a journey of over 2,500 km to Bangalore, situated at over 3,000 feet above sea level in the heart of South India, the malt is crafted, distilled and matured. After the Angels have feasted on their sumptuous share from the barrels, they set out on their final journey, being shipped 9,000 km to a secret location in Europe. The Single Malt of Liquid Gold then undergoes a further maturation in the cooler climes of Europe.
This is the 3rd edition.
The third Double Cask release from Amrut, a blend of two old Indian whiskies made with Scottish peated barley, one matured in ex-bourbon and the other in ex-port.
Both Casks were filled in 2012, and bottled in 2017 at 5 years of age—creating only 900 bottles.
