Distilled at Trinidad’s legendary Caroni Distillery in February 1998, before the closure of the nearby state-owned sugar plantation caused the distillery to close in 2002. This rum was aged for 15 years on the island until 22nd September 2013 when it was sent to be bottled in Scotland (in Nov 2013). Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 19/07/2014

Appearance

Clear, coppery amber with burnished copper glints.

Aroma

Orange zest, dried apricot, asphalt-like molasses, vanilla, lemon cake and nutmeg with faintly smoky toasty oak.

Taste

Robust and full-bodied with dried fruit, dry spicy oak, white pepper, bonfire smoke and vanilla butterscotch. Adding water wrecks the structure, exposing asphalt-like and hot spice.

Aftertaste

Dry and slightly smoky with black pepper spice. Perhaps a tad over aged.
