Final summer time, Indian whisky-maker Amrut launched this particular version single malt, dubbed Bagheera. Bagheera additionally occurs to be the title given to the black panther character in Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle E-book (who seems to be skulking round within the foreground on the label). That, together with a gilded picture of the grand Mysore Palace on the label, and there ought to be no mistaking this bottle holds Indian whisky. Like most (if not all?) Amrut whiskies, there’s no age assertion, and whereas it’s completed in sherry casks, we’re not instructed what sort of sherry nor how lengthy. It’s all moderately mysterious, not not like that shadowy panther on the label. Anyway, let’s dig in.

The aroma showcases that acquainted Amrut type with a basis of toasty, subtly smoky cereals. Preliminary berry notes remodel to prune in time, then sweeter raisin, and finally give option to brighter, overripe stone fruit as issues actually open up. A contact of cocoa powder additionally provides the nostril a barely dry edge. There’s fairly a little bit of citrus peel and candy orchard fruit on the outset on the palate, all complemented by delicate baking spice and a mild heat. Darker raisin notes and berry compote arrive on the mid-palate together with a little bit of pipe tobacco and previous leather-based. It’s superbly balanced, gentle and silky, with an approachable sweetness that by no means actually fluctuates throughout the sip and finishes with heat, lingering notes of cola and ginger. There are glimmers of the excellent Spectrum releases on this bottle, which is saying one thing. Amrut has clearly discovered find out how to use India’s excessive local weather to its benefit, particularly with the best sherry casks.
