CARONI 17 ans 2000 US VERSION 70CL 55%

Rhum De Melasse, Trinidad & Tobago, 70cl, Ref: 54272

Quantity limited to 1 bottle(s) by client.

Quantities limited to 1 bottle per customer and per transaction. Caroni 2000 is the latest bottling of the abandoned stock of old Caroni in Trinidad. It was the first ever for US market at 750ml bottle and it is the first at 700ml made for the European market. This Caroni contains one of best expressions of vintage 2000, as it was aged 17 years of static ageing in the tropics, under hot weather and humidity. It is hugely aged in relationship to other European spirit, to perfectly capture the unique Trinidad heavy rum character of this closed distillery and was bottled at 55% ABV. Extremely woody as all Caroni rums, it has charming notes of hydrocarbure, minerals, exotic fruits, tobacco and humid wood.

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.
