Amrut Master Distiller Surrinder Kumar's newest artful creation is now primed to see the light of day and we proudly present to you, the 'Amrut Greedy Angels 10 Year Old Peated Sherry Finish'.
This single malt whisky (324 bottles worldwide) is the second release of the Greedy Angels 10YO and also marks the first time that a peated whisky has been aged for 10 years in India.
The process began by casking the peated new make spirit, distilled from Scottish peated barley, into a first fill PX-Sherry Butt for 7 years. After this period of maturation, the whisky was transferred to an ex-Bourbon cask and a 100 litre refill virgin oak barrel respectively and aged for a further three years. Here, Amrut have followed an unusual process of moving from Sherry cask to ex-Bourbon which would normally have been done the other way around.
"The result is so gratifying, and one can witness a profile of peated whisky aged for over 30 years in the Scottish Isles", says Distillery representative Ashok Chokalingam. "This is made evident by the phenols which are absolutely soft and playing the hide and seek game while being punctuated by heavy sherry notes, and somewhat kneeled down by the impact of ex-Bourbon and virgin Oak maturation combination. The result is an essay in complexity, and one needs to really look deep down & under to appreciate the mystical complexity of this extraordinary single malt from the Amrut stable".
