CDI Caroni Trinidad LWR 1996 25yr 51,5%

RX11071 Good Single Cask 189 bottles Above 250€
“Fruity, approachable Caroni with unique sweet twist; lacks classic punch.”

The Trinidad Caroni 25-year-old rum, produced in Trinidad at the Caroni distillery and bottled by Compagnie des Indes, is a limited release with only 189 bottles available. Distilled in 1996 from Molasses and aged for 25 years, this cask strength rum boasts a 51.5% ABV. A combination of tar, rubber, fresh menthol, and cherry notes characterize its aroma, while a dirty, caramel, rubber, tea, and round flavor palate gives it a unique taste profile. Users appreciate this rum's approachable, fruity profile but note that it deviates from usual Caroni characteristics like edges and a "dirty" quality. Overall, it is seen as a good entry point for Caroni newcomers, despite its relatively high cost.

“Very accessible and drinkable Caroni. Rather on the sweet, round side. Personally, I miss the rough edges. Floral and anise notes dominate.”

“Für mich zu süss und kräuterig für einen Caroni und zu wenig Schmackes (ABV), relativ lieblich. Das Werkstattfeeling ist mehr wie die Werkbank einer Bastelstube aus dem TV…zu aufgeräumt. Dezente Nase. Alles bis auf die Süsse eher zurückhaltend. Mit der Zeit mehr Kräuter.”
