Caroni 20 Year Old (That Boutique-y Rum Company)

Caroni 20yo TBRC Bottling Note

This is a fantastic independent bottling of 20 year old rum from the Caroni Distillery in Trinidad. Though the distillery is now sadly closed, indie bottlers like the Boutique-y folks do sometimes manager to get their hands on its spirits, which is great because it's usually fantastic stuff. It's also good because it means we don't have to go poking around the closed distillery, which would definitely be trespassing. Generally frowned upon, that.

Batch 2 is a release of 1,875 bottles.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Through medicinal smoke, a little linseed oil, tar and warm rubber there’s homemade blackcurrant and raspberry jam, ripe banana, manuka honey and bread and butter pudding. Muscovado sugar, rich vanilla, rancio truffles and a touch of drying wood spice emerge among old red wine, orange peel and a soft touch of polished oak.

Palate: Intense, drying tannins lead with thick molasses, a little golden syrup and vanilla cream layered over heaps of ripe tropical fruit and dried apricot in support. Underneath there’s some minerality, as well as touches of bitter liquorice, Terry’s Chocolate Orange, dried cherries, iodine, game meat, coffee beans and roasted nuts.

Finish: Oak char lingers in a long finish among hints of eucalyptus, salted caramel and cinnamon bark.

Overall: Simply put, it’s just one of the best rums around. I’ve got a case of Caronimania.
