Dram Review: Amrut Intermediate Sherry

One of the highlights from an Amrut tasting I went to a while ago. 
This whisky is aged in bourbon barrel first, then transferred to a sherry butt for two years, before finishing back in the bourbon barrel.

Nose:

Quite an earthy nose at first, sticky raisins, toffee, cloves, a hint of soy sauce, white pepper and sweetness from a sweet and chilli sauce towards the back end.

Palate & Finish:

Burnt brown sugar on the palate, dark raisins with some acidity within, dark chocolate sipping through as well.

Cloves and cinnamon spices coming through in the finish.

Thoughts:

It’s really quite smooth actually despite the high ABV, not throat burning at all.

Not bad for the price, certainly did the motherland proud.
