Rum Nation Caroni Small Batch Rare Rums 1998 23yr 55,4%

RX11047 Very good Column Still Rum 860 bottles Under 250€

The Small Batch Rare Rums, a limited release from the Caroni distillery in Trinidad, is a 23-year-old rum selected and bottled by Rum Nation. Distilled in 1998 using a Column Still from Molasses, it boasts an impressive 55.4% ABV with only 860 bottles available. Overall, users describe this rum as having a roasted, vanilla, tropical fruit, and woody aroma. Its flavor profile consists of woody, ester, tropical fruit, spicy, and vanilla notes. Recommended for both casual sippers and rum enthusiasts, it offers a well-rounded and slightly unique experience. However, users suggest that the rum may slightly miss the mark when it comes to the Sherry cask finish, and that the price is on the higher side.

“Tasted together with Leo Tomczak at the 11th GRF and can only agree with Leo's assessment here in all respects. The fact that this Caroni is not really successful, especially because of the finish, becomes even clearer when tasted in parallel with the "Slippery" (RX451), as we did.”

“Entry-level Caroni, which would certainly come across better without the sherry cask. Very round, almost too flat. Nice Sipper also for non-nerds.Price too high.”

“Aroma: floral, fruity with notes of coconut, sweet, rubber, smoky, asphalt, ripe pear, fresh apples, stood and smoky asphalt notes come to the fore, candied cherries / cherries, some kind of creme brulee appears, the aroma is very sweet dense and at the same time light. Taste: smoky-iodine taste, lots of fruit, caramel, very powerful smooth taste of asphalt, rubber mixed with fruit. Long bright aftertaste with notes of dried fruits, asphalt. Аромат: цветочный, фруктовый с нотами кокоса, сладкий, резина, дымный, асфальт, спелая груша, свежие яблоки, постоял и дымно-асфальтовые ноты выходят на первый план, засахаренные вишня/черешня, появляется какое-то крем-брюле, аромат очень сладкий плотный и в тоже время лёгкий. Вкус: дымно-йодистый вкус, много фруктов, карамель, очень мощный ровный вкус асфальта, резины замешаный на фруктах. Долгое яркое послевкусие с нотами сухофруктов, асфальта.”
