Amrut Intermediate Sherry Matured is uniquely different from the usual sherry finished or sherry matured whiskies. It is the first intermediate sherry matured whisky with the malt aged in sherry casks between periods maturing in either bourbon or virgin casks at Amruts Bangalore distillery. Ashok Chokalingam of Amrut Distilleries Ltd explains the thinking behind this new maturation process.
In our belief, it is not all about the influence of sherry in the whisky. It is about the balanced profile of the whisky to see how the sherry butts can complement the whisky rather than dominating it. As a result we tried the intermediate sherry matured concept where our new spirit was matured in exbourbon or virgin casks, then the whisky was matured in sherry butts for a certain length in time in the tropical climate of Bangalore. Next the sherry butts were emptied and the whisky put in ex-bourbon casks and matured for a further period. The result is something unique and we achieve a better fusion of bourbon and sherry notes in complementing the trademark Amrut characteristics in this single malt whisky, added Ashok.
