Amrut Single Cask Caroni Rum Cask (No. 5149), 60%

Price: $150 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

With exceptional flavors across the nose, mouthfeel, and palate, this delivers great flavor both at cask strength and at various dilutions. Strong aromas of barley mingle with thick peach puree, fruity syrups, grassy notes, barley sugars, and orange Jell-O. Sweet and rich with tropical flavors of mango, passion fruit, papaya, and baked peach, it handles the high alcohol and builds through a slow crescendo in flavor to reach the peak.
