“Elegant Caroni, subtle with balanced fruits and classic dirty hints.”

"S.B.S Trinidad" is a limited release rum, produced at the Caroni distillery in Trinidad and bottled by 1423 World Class Spirits. Distilled in 1998 from molasses using a column still, this rum is aged for 24 years and has a cask strength ABV of 62.9%. With only 245 bottles available, this exceptional rum offers a delicate nose with vanilla, woody, chemical and tropical fruit notes.

“Also a retaste for me and again I stick to the initial score. A light Caroni in my ming but the overall balance is really good. In my mind the price tag on this rum is high compare to what you get. That said it's still a pretty good Caroni. Not super heavy in the traditional notes, but a more controlled version. The rubber and tar is there as well as nice wood and light fruit with light spice, mint and also herbal notes.”

“Nose is comparably delicate. Dominated by some Caroni notes alongside sweet/malty notes and some fruits. Quite approachable Sweet and fruity on the palate; some mint and cacao as well. Dirty notes are only present on the finish alongside some menthol. Very tasty. However, too delicate to excite friends of the dirty profile imho.”

“Erstaunlich gut! Kein dreckiger Caroni, es dominieren eher die Bourbon-Noten.”
