Review: Old Port Deluxe Rum (2011)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 1, 2011

The Amrut Distillery is situated in Bangalore, ‘the garden city’ of India. The distillery sits in a tropical locale 3000 ft above sea level with its water source being the Himalayan Mountains. According to Indian Mythology, when the Gods and the Demons churned the oceans, they used the mountain, Meru, as the churner. As the Ocean was churned, a golden pot sprang up containing the Elixir of Life which was called the “Amrut”. This legend of course serves as the inspiration for the naming of the Amrut Distillery.

Amrut Old Port Deluxe Rum is the subject of this review, and it has undergone some changes since I last reviewed it 2 years ago. For Starters, the new bottle is slightly larger and contains slightly more (50 ml) rum. And, according to the importers of this spirit, Purple Valley Imports, the blend has changed to. The rum is continues to be distilled, aged,  and bottled at Amrut’s facility in Bangalore India using 100% Indian Cane. But the new style is apparently more whisky-like in body and delivery. I am hoping that the new blend still captures that wonderful exotic flavour of Indian Cane which I noted in my first review.

Here is an excerpt from the new review:

“… The aroma from the glass is filled with butterscotch candy. Light impressions of orange peel are present with vanilla and light oak spices. As I let the glass breathe, the aroma of sweet butterscotch-toffee deepens and a very light tobacco scent is apparent as well as some building baking spices. This is indeed much different than the older blend which contained much more heavy molasses in the aroma…”
