Now and then one might get the feeling that one is launched into another realm of consciousness. Most of the time it is an illusion. This time I know it is an illusion too, but I do not care at all. Yes I am thunderstruck. I jumped out of my skin. It may not be the best whisky in the whole wide world. No, it is not even the best whisky of the subcontinent of India. So I am told. This is a tidal wave. Although I admit it does not urge Noah to build an ark. It really punches right between the eyes.
Amrut Peated Cask Strength is the whisky of this review. It is well known. I cannot help it writing about it, because it is truly amazing.
Its nose is impressive . It is full of smoke, it is very sweet. It is salty. It reminds me of exotic fruit, cinnamon and white pepper.
Its palate is aggressive and rough. It is spicy. Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Curry. White Pepper. It is fruity. Bananas. Cherries.Mango. Oranges. Very smoky .Lots of liquorice. A little too sweet.
The finish is full of white pepper, exotic fruit , lots and lots of liquorice ,very sweet and smoky
Its balance is terrific
Holy Cow, someone once said this Amrut is like Agni, the Hindu God of fire, in a bottle. I agree. Yeah, I agree. If you like Lagavulin 16 , you will love this tidal wave from India.
