Default Amrut Old Port Deluxe Rum

Another review I rescued from an old thread. I have expanded it a bit to have a more well rounded review. Again this rum is not as yet in the MoR database.

Old Port Deluxe Rum (92pts)

Old Port is distilled and aged at Amrut's facility in Bangalore India using 100% Indian Cane. This cane has a unique taste all its own making this a truly different taste experience for a 'Western' palate like mine....

Default Amrut Old Port is Reblended

I found out at the Edmonton "Drink Like a Pirate" Rum Festival that Old Port Rum from Amrut has undergone some significant changes. The Rum is now in a different bottle and the blend had changed considerably.

When I tasted it at the festival it was much lighter than before, and did not carry the unique spices I had found in my original review. The importing company in Alberta will be forwarding me a new bottle and I will be doing a new review shortly...ish.

Default Review: Amrut Old Port Deluxe Rum (2011 Bottling)

As I mentioned the new blend is significantly different. Gone is the rich molasses and caramel. In its place we have a more whisky-like spirit with butterscotch and oak leading the way.

Review: Amrut Old Port Deluxe Rum (2011 Bottling)

One wonders why they didn't change the name as the two blends are barely recognizable as siblings.
