Amrut 2015 Aged 7 Years Single Cask #3897 Australian Exclusive Oloroso Sherry Butt Matured Indian Single Malt Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 60% Age: 7 Years Old Country: India Chill Filtered?: Non Chill Filtered
India boasts a warmer climate than Scotland, a whisky at 7 years of age matures at nearly twice the rate of that of a whisky maturing in a Scottish warehouse. Barrels of whisky then have a shorter life span and the difference between a good whisky and great whisky could be days rather than months or years. You have to be able to understand the whisky you have maturing and know when you should be nurturing it and looking after it daily. The Head Distiller at Amrut, Ashok Chokalingam was planning a trip to Australia and so decided to bring with him a sample of Amrut Sherry Butt #38977. The whisky was cut very gently from it’s cask strength back to 60% abv only to help pull the sediment to the bottom of the barrel. With no chill filtration or any filtration for that matter the whisky retained its natural colour, natural fats and natural oils. This whisky delivers not just on the aroma but on the mouthfeel, the importers in Australia just fell in love with this liquid and it had to be bottled exclusively for Australia. Only 216 bottles were produced and the abv was kept at 60% ABV. Distilled in July 2015 and bottled in December 2022.
