Review #31: Amrut Bangalore Tiger Single Cask

This is a review of Amrut Bangalore Tiger which is a Canada only ex-bourbon, PX sherry finished single cask bottled at 50.5%. The sample for this review came from a bottle split I did a while back.

N:Malty and spicy. Nutmeg, cinnamon, banana, green tea, some oak.

P: Malt, unripe banana, ginger, nutmeg, chocolate.

F: Very long and warming. Cinnamon. Bitter.

Overall: Not a bad dram but I’ve had much better from Amrut. I didn’t notice a lot of sherry influence and thought the core distillery profile shows through well. It was also a lot hotter than I expected with a bit of bitterness on the finish; I found that both of these things improved with a bit of water and I’d recommend adding a bit if you get a chance to try this.

Score: 82
