    whiskyfun: Amrut 'Port Morant Rum Finish' (62.3%, Blackadder, cask ref BA 9/2010, 278 bottles)  Wasn't it for one very hard to please Maniac ;-); this baby would have fetched high silver at the MMA last year. Colour: full gold. Nose: this is very, very wild! Plenty of hay, game, tobacco, molasses, ginger and leather, with also a layer of tar and liquorice. Also lots of herbs and grass, whiffs of farmyard in Summer, maybe a little smoke… With water: wham! A blast of peaty grass – or is it grassy peat? We’re almost on Islay, even if the peatiness is soon to diminish. Gets then more leathery. Mouth (neat): this is very rich, almost thick, with more rum than on the nose. Works well with Amrut’s sweet profile. There’s also much more peat now, bitter oranges, some heavy honey, kumquats, ginger, tonic water, liquorice… Frankly, this is very unusual, even a little unlikely and certainly rock and roll (but I like it). With water: peat and Demerara have now mingled. Still a very heavy style but it’s excellent. Finish: extremely long, with the peat and pepper winning in the end. Sugar cane and leather in the aftertaste, though. Comments: a VERY devilish beast, this peated Amrut that was finished in Port Mourant casks in the UK. Did the good Blackadder people know this was going to be great? SGP:666 (devilish indeed) - 87 points.
