Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : acajou.
  • Nose : fin, subtil. Tour à tour, il évoque un café liégeois, une tarte à la rhubarbe, des oranges sanguines, du caramel au beurre salé, un bas-armagnac avec ses notes de pruneau. Multidimensionnel, il évolue sur le pain d’épices, la noix grillée et les fleurs capiteuses (tilleul, mimosa). En toile de fond, quelques hydrocarbures parfument l’atmosphère.
  • Palate : vive, nerveuse. Acidulée et fruitée à la manière irlandaise (cassis, mûre), elle monte en puissance sur les épices (poivre, cannelle) et les plantes infusées (verveine, sauge). Pimentée et camphrée, elle devient de plus en plus médicinale et solaire (zestes de pamplemousse). Avec moelleux, elle restitue le goût de la datte.
  • Overall : longue, dynamique. Sa mâche considérable révèle des fruits secs (raisin, abricot). Fibreuse, elle évolue sur la canne à sucre. De nouveaux fruits (groseille à maquereau, quetsches) font leur apparition en extrême finale. La rétro olfaction est savoureuse de délicatesse (pétale de rose, fond d’artichaut). Le verre vide est capiteux (tubéreuse) et altier.
The brand

The brand

Beginning production in 1918, Caroni was the state distillery of Trinidad. It had access to its own sugar refinery that guaranteed its supply of local cane sugar. Equipped with both column stills and double distillation pot stills, until 2002 it produced “heavy rums” with an individual and noteworthy style. Only rarely producing bottlings under its own label, for a long time the distillery remained known only to a handful of connoisseurs, which gave it a mythical status further enhanced by its closure in 2002 by the Trinidad government. In 2004, the discovery of hundreds of bottles stored away in a bonded warehouse in Trinidad led to the joint purchase of the entire Caroni stock by Velier and La Maison du Whisky and to the bottling of various rare years which were then sold in limited editions and quickly gained cult status. This veritable and unique treasure lead to the production of a 12 year old Caroni. Despite its already respectable age, this completely new and historic bottling will be the last version of Caroni to be bottled so young.
