A new concept from Amrut. The spirit for Intermediate Sherry Matured starts life in a mix of ex-bourbon and virgin oak casks. It is then transferred to sherry casks for a period before going back into bourbon casks to complete its maturation. There's been a huge buzz about this, and we've only got a small allocation,

A peated bottling from Goa's John Distilleries under their Paul John brand. Produced using peat imported from Scotland (there isn't any in India). it was bottled in 2013 at cask strength. The brand first arrived in the UK in 2012 and continues to go from strength to strength.
Kadhambam means 'mixture' or 'combination', and this Amrut certainly lives up to its name: a vatting of normal and peated Amrut that started life in ex-Oloroso casks before being transferred first into brandy casks, then into rum casks (both the rum and brandy having been produced at Amrut also). A curious admixture, you might say - but it works. This is a unique and thrilling whisky - but sadly we've only got a handful of bottles.
The limited edition cask strength edition of The English Whisky Company's award winning Chapter 11. Aged for a little over 3 years and then bottled at full proof this is a punchy young whisky which has aged very well.
