Distilled at the dearly departed Caroni Distillery, Trinidad in January 2000 and aged on the island until 12th January 2012, then shipped to Scotland where it was bottled in March 2012.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 29/09/2012

Appearance

Clear golden with burnished gold highlights.

Aroma

Tarred rope and asphalt-like molasses, earthy with hints of spruce needle, macadamia nut, coal dust and faint smoky black liquorice.

Taste

Medium to heavy bodied, sweet tar and charcoal with smoky bacon fat-washed flavour and mouth feel. Dry oakyness is restrained and harmonious.

Aftertaste

Long, slightly metallic, barbeque charcoal and chargrilled sweetcorn. Classic Trini rum.
