Coldorak as a Greedy Angel.

Amrut 10yo Greedy Angels Peated Sherry Finish

Back in 2019, Amrut released three expressions of its top shelf Greedy Angels. The first one was the unpeated ex-bourbon cask 10-year-old Greedy Angels I reviewed back in 2019. It was also the occasion for me to dive into what’s the Angels’ Share, and if you haven’t read this article, I encourage you to do so. The second one was the 10yo Greedy Angels Peated Rum Finish I reviewed a few weeks ago. And the third and last one was the one I’ll review today (take a deep breath): the Amrut 10-year-old Greedy Angels Peated Sherry Finish. I’ve talked about this range previously, so let’s directly jump to the tasting.

Amrut Triparva

Amrut Triparva

We’re back to India today, to try something quite new from Amrut: a triple-distilled single malt. Triple distillation is mostly associated with Irish whiskey, as most Irish distilleries use this process to distil their whiskey. If you want to learn a bit more about that process, I talked about it here. Ireland is not the only country where triple distillation is used however, as some Scottish distilleries, Auchentoshan or Springbank – for its Hazelburn brand – for example, also distil thrice their spirit before filling it into casks. But today, it’s Indian triple distillation, so let’s taste and review the recently released Amrut Triparva.

Amrut 10-year-old Greedy Angels Peated Rum Finish

Two years ago, the Amrut 10yo Greedy Angels I tried was a fantastic demonstration about the difference about maturation and evaporation, the Angels’ Share, between countries and regions of the world. So I did some research to better understand how the Angels’ Share was working. How the type of warehouse, the oak the cask is made from and the climate all have an influence on the evaporation of the content of the cask. How some volume disappears over the years. Why usually the alcohol by volume drops in the whisky, but sometimes it’s rising. But I won’t write it again about the Angels’ Share, just go read what I wrote early last year, when I reviewed another Amrut 10yo Greedy Angels. Then in February when I kept the Angels’ Share part of the article to have a dedicated one in the ‘All about whisky’ category. But tonight, I’ll just review another victim of the angels, the Amrut 10yo Greedy Angels Peated Rum Finish.

Amrut 10yo Greedy Angels Chairman’s Reserve Review

Back in October 2019, I attended Whisky Live Paris, and there was an Amrut masterclass hosted by their master distiller, Ashok Chokalingam. He was really interesting to listen to and discuss with, and he directed the tasting of three Amrut drams, including the Amrut 10yo Greedy Angels Chairman’s Reserve 2019 we’ll review. But before tasting this Amrut, let’s talk about the Greedy Angels range, and what angels they’re referring to: what’s often referred as the angels’ share.
