The Heavy Trinidad Rum HTR by Velier showcases the quintessential Caroni profile with its rich, complex aromas and flavors.

The finish is exceptionally long and warm, leaving a lasting impression. This limited-release, 18-year-aged rum epitomizes the quality and richness that Caroni aficionados cherish, providing an unforgettable tasting experience. Ideal for connoisseurs seeking an elite, complex rum with depth and a fragrant aroma.

“Dirty, fruity, intense nose - very horny! Complex, creamy and very smooth on the palate. Better than the Full Proof!”

“Typical Caroni profile with apple and pear notes which add more complexity and balance. When you taste this one, you can imagine how good the Full Proof version can be 😉”

“A nose combining diesel and cooked banana, bicycle tire, tar and tropical fruit. A frosty side, but less present than in the 1992 Hangar. The attack is rather soft, then the aromas come on strongly. But a certain freshness (menthol) and sweetness (caramel, pastries) add complexity to this rum. The finish is long and elegant. A tar unlike any other Caronis, like an insulating tar for roofs. Powerful yet smooth, that's a good summary for this rum with its deep, varied aromas. An easy-drinking rum with perfectly integrated wood. Splendid!”
