As one who doesn’t live in the UK/Scotland, it’s no wonder I have a ongoing love affair with world whiskies. quite earlier in my single malt whisky road I purchased and tried couple of world whiskies from Japan, South Africa, Europe but somehow one important market eluded me – India, at least until now.
There are 2 known single malt whisky producers from India: Paul John and Amrut and I finally got to taste one of Amrut single cask expressions – a PX sherry cask distilled on June 2009 and was bottled August 2013. Yes, only 4years old one but it should not come as a surprise as Indian whisky isn’t aged for long due to the hot and humid climate there. Amrut rarely age their whisky over 4 years as the angel’s share is x5-x8 than the usual one in Scotland (their oldest expression is 8 years old)
So a 4 years old whisky from PX sherry single cask – is it a sherry bomb or not?
