Peat’s Thoughts: Once again Blackadder has called my name and this time, it came in the form of Peat Amrut, an Indian single malt whisky. On the nose you get an instant rush of smokey oak coupled with a lush sweetness which can only be attributed to that lovely sherry finish. Coming out at the an incredibly 58.!% from a single cask, this is another beast from the bottling giant. The taste reminds me of the Islay monsters such as Laphroaig or Ardbeg with the intense peat flavour, but as stated, because of that sherry finish, it’s less seaweed and more earthiness that comes to mind. With a little water, it opens up completely and all these floral notes take center stage. When I had it, there was even a few sediments from the cask in my dram, which I admit, didn’t stay in my glass for very long. But what did was the taste. The finish is long and luxurious, with an overwhelming sense of oak and more of that peat. Very delicious. Very delicious indeed.
