C. Dully Selection Caroni Heavy Trinidad Rum 1998 23yr 54,2%

RX11715 Very good Single Cask 280 bottles Above 250€

The Heavy Trinidad Rum is a 23-year-old rum produced at the Caroni distillery in Trinidad and selected and bottled by independent bottler C. Dully Selection. Distilled in 1998 from molasses and aged for 23 years, this limited release of 280 bottles boasts an ABV of 54.2%. With a complex profile, the aroma is rich in tropical fruit, rubber, vanilla, solvents, and green apple, while the flavor delivers a unique blend of tar, leather, spices, tobacco, and solvents. Generally considered an easy-sipping Caroni and slightly milder than some of its Velier counterparts, this rum presents a sophisticated balance that has managed to captivate the community with its enticing mix of fruity and "dirtier" notes.

How does this rum taste?

Trinidad Heavy Caroni is a rather atypical, yet delightful rum. It offers a harmonious blend of tropical fruits, delicate floral undertones, hints of tobacco, wood, and distinct Caroni's signature 'dirt' for an adventurous palate. An enjoyable, complex, slightly smoky sipper with a punchy finish.

“I find it very good. Sweet. Not dirty, rather round. Definitely red fruit on the non-biting nose. Blackberry!!! 😋 In the emptied glass I smell shoe polish. On the palate just a pleasing, not very typical Caroni that doesn't want to hurt. Recommendation!Update 19.06.2022:Can't keep up in direct comparison with the Velier Caroni Employees 6th of course, simply paler, therefore 3 points devaluation to still a very good 87 points.Update 09.07.2022:Last drops from the bottle. Detect a fine earthy, rooty note on the finish. 😋 It would be unfair not to upgrade - so finalmente 88 points! 👏”

“Nose is more on the fruity side. Some dirt is present but does not dominate at all. Quite balanced in the palate with sweet(er) and roasted notes alongside a little dirt.”

“Un échantillon récupéré au Lucerne Rum Festival. Un nez vif avec des fruits, beaucoup de fruits tropicaux, du vieux bois verni et de l’atelier mécanique en arrière plan. La bouche est délicate avec un parfum floral jamais dégusté chez Caroni. Les fruits arrivent avec du melon et ensuite de tes agréables notes pâtissières. Beaucoup d’amplitude. La finale est fraîche et florale, fruitée et gourmande. Un très beau rhum qui m’emmène sur un marché dans un pays tropical avec toutes sortes d’échoppes vendant des fruits, des fleurs et quelques ateliers de réparation mécanique.”
