CoR Caroni Trinidad No. 4 1998 24yr 62,9%

RX14115 Very good Column Still Rum Single Cask 250 bottles Above 250€

The Trinidad No. 4 by The Colours of Rum is a sought-after gem from the legendary Caroni distillery. This 24-year-old, cask-strength rum (62.9% ABV) boasts complex and intense flavors. Users note a robust aroma of rubber, tar, burnt sugar, and tobacco. On the palate, expect bold notes of tar, oak, and spicy rubber with hints of dark chocolate and dried fruits. The rum's well-integrated alcohol and woody depth make it a balanced but intense experience. Its long, slightly medicinal and spicy finish showcases Caroni's signature "dirty" profile, which is less sweet and fruity compared to other Caronis. Perfect for connoisseurs seeking a distinctive and powerful rum tasting adventure. Limited to just 250 bottles, this collectible rum embodies Caroni's enduring legacy.

“Got this sample for free from RumX. It’s a single cask bottling from the legendary Caroni distillery that closed down in 2003. It’s a column still rum distilled in 1998 whereafter it’s tropical aged for 11 years in an ex-bourbon barrel and then continentally aged for an additional 12 years in an ex-whisky barrel before bottled in 2022 in just 250 bottles with a cask strength of 62,9%. Overall a very intense, complex and round rum.”

“Dégustation chez J. B. Labat. Un nez plutôt léger en atelier mécanique et avec pas mal de fruits. Comme un côté beurré aussi. La bouche est vive, mais comme au nez, plutôt équilibrée entre les notes d’atelier mécanique et les fruits. La finale est longue et délicieuse. Un rhum avec assez peu d’aspérités mais plutôt dans l’équilibre.”

“Needs real time in the glass. In the nose first sweet after burnt sugar, oak, dried fruit, leather, rubber and asphalt (tar). A little more fruit on the palate, not at all as dirty as some other Caroni... Leather, rubber and dark chocolate. Alcohol well integrated. Some bitterness on the finish but within limits.”
