Amrut Old Port Rum 750ml

Amrut Old Port Rum

The experience with Amrut's sensational Indian malt whiskies has been that they perform above their age, tasting far more mature than one expects after 4-6 years. Their Old Port rum behaves similarly, with thick and rich flavors that don't normally happen before the better part of a dozen years in the cask. Pronounced confectionery aromas of vanilla and fruits vie with a vein of earthen rumminess common to rums from English colonies; really, the aroma is quite huge and soaring from the glass. These notes transfer to the palate, which enters with a bit of sweetness before finishing dry. Old Port is a heck of a rum, big-boned and big-toned, packed with flavor. Cursory tiki cocktail research suggests Old Port works well in place of Jamaican rum, with a little more sweetness; it made an awfully nice Mai Tai.

I found a recipe for a Christmas punch that includes 1/2 bottle of Rum and 1/2 a bottle of Port.. So what is PORT then? I'll have to see if I can find the recipe online again.. maybe I've not understood something right?

FROM WIKIPEDIA: "Port wine (also known as Vinho do Porto, Porto, and often simply port) is a Portuguese fortified wine produced exclusively in the Douro Valley in the northern provinces of Portugal. It is typically a sweet, red wine, often served as a dessert wine, and comes in dry, semi-dry, and white varieties. Fortified wines in the style of port are also produced outside Portugal, most notably in Australia, South Africa, Canada, India, Argentina, and the United States. Under European Union Protected Designation of Origin guidelines, only the product from Portugal may be labelled as port or Porto. In the United States, wines labelled "port" may come from anywhere in the world, while the names, "Oporto", "Porto", and "Vinho do Porto" have been recognized as foreign, non-generic names for wines originating in Portugal.
