Caroni Paradise #1 (RX13433)

The Paradise #1 is a limited edition rum from the Caroni distillery in Trinidad. It was distilled in 1996 and aged for 26 years before being bottled at cask strength with an ABV of 62.7%. This rum has notes of oak, vanilla, caramel, toasted, and milk chocolate on the nose and taste. It has tropical fruit and woody notes with some sweetness, florals, and esters on the palate. The finish is long and fruity with light roasting, woody spice notes. This rum is milder than typical Caronis but still doesn't quite justify its price tag.

HTR/LTR blend, in which the classic dirty Caroni flavors play only a minor role. Nice sweetness, recognizable wood, plus some tar and spice - basically a good rum, but just rather on the mild side for Caronis.

A Caroni Single Cask from a blend that was matured in Trinidad, then in Guyana before finishing in France. We find the influence of Guyana in the nose, tropical fruits, spicy and woody notes taking precedence over the typical tar and rubber. There are some sweet, floral notes and esters as well. On the palate, the dark profile of Guyana brings a lot of sweetness and leaves only some empyreumatic notes. The finish is long and remains on a fruity, slightly roasted, woody and spicy register. Far from the typical dirty and powerful profile, this one distinguishes itself by its sweetness and balance, whose aromas are mastered and the alcohol very well integrated. Still, it needs more to become a real unicorn and justify the price.

On the nose, the 1996 was just filled with delightful sweet caramel, vanilla, extremely elegant. And there’s a hint of unripe fruits, a bit of greenness perhaps, coupled with a touch of wood. This one is uniquely complex, very much like one of those caronis that are so finely balanced between the tar and floral notes, little bit of pineapples, and hibiscus. The palate matches the nose for its elegance, and just rolls over your tongue so easily. Interestingly it starts off rather savoury, glutinous rice, but very lovely, round, brown sugar. You do feel the higher abv in this one, a tad spritely, marshmallows, juicy red fruits, plums, red grapes. The complexity is really quite something, and epitomised with lingering sourplums in the long, long finish.
